More by accident than design, I took the footpath from Ano Sagri rather than driving right up to the Temple. It was a magical experience, walking through an unspoilt valley filled with olive groves, losing my way a couple of times, and beginning to think the temple didn't really exist, and then I walked around an olive tree and there she was, on top of the hill, looking stunning.
If you can visit during the season, when the museum (free) is open, it is well worth doing this before going up to the temple itself. It gives you good background and explanation of how the temple was built, and its long history (it later became a Christian church).
There's also a very nice restaurant in Ano Sagri, but I cannot remember its name.
