“VERY NICE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013

This is one of the prominent TEMPLES on DELOS and gives a very good idea of what this aspect of life must have been like in the heyday of the Island. It is a must see on DELOS.

“Restored facade of Greek Temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

The Temple of Isis is a Doric Temple which is built on a small hill above the Delos museum. It is a steady 10 minute walk up the hill on an uneven trail with loose rocks. The temple is very picturesque and leads to many of the other sites on Delos. It was built in the second century BC and contains a statue of the god ISIS.

If you have any interest at all in the ancient history of Greece and the Med, Delos is the place to see. A sacred island where everyone from the Delian league came to meet. It's about a 30-40 minute boat ride from Mykonos.

We signed up for a tour thru our hotel and I would suggest that you sign up for a tour so a guide can help you get the lay of the land when you get to Delos and to more easily help you understand what you are seeing. Then after the tour they turn you loose and let you wander and look as much as you want. The site covers 100's of acres.

WARNING -this is no air conditioned museum. It is a rugged and rocky archaeological site. There is a restroom and that is all. No gift shops and no concessions. Walking can be difficult and steep. Take water to drink, wear a hat for the sun, and wear the heaviest walking shoes that you have.
