After The Acropolis, Delphi is one of the most important and attractive archaeological sites of Greece. It’s located 180 kilometers from Athens but worth the trip.We depart from Athens and head northwest towards Delphi. Our journey to Delphi takes us through some marvelous countryside, and soon we reach Mount Parnassus, where we will make stops at Levadia and Arachova. These picturesque villages are also very beautiful winter resorts of the region. Both are known for their locally produced goods. From here we head towards Delphi.

Delphi is one of most impressive archaeological sites in Greece, a place full of energy, and the place where heaven and earth met. Here lies the Sanctuary of Apollo, where Oracle Pythia was talking to the God, asking for his wisdom on behalf of the numerous visitors seeking for celestial help. The Temple of Apollo, the Temple of Athena Pronaia, the Castalian Spring, the Gymnasium and the Ancient Theatre will all be seen on our visit here this afternoon.

A visit to the Archeological Museum of Delphi gives us the chance to see up close the famous bronze Charioteer of Delphi, Eniochos, the actual stone marking the Centre of the Ancient World and a vast array of statues and artifacts.
