Next to the Acropolis in Athens Delphi is by far the most popular archaeological site in Greece.
Located 180 km. Northwest from Athens on the South slope of the mountain Parnassos, Delphi was believed to be the centre of the earth and was the most important religious centre of ancient Greece. Indeed it was and still is one of the most beautiful and mystical sites in the world.
The ancient Greeks chose this unique spot for their most sacred and famous Oracle, dedicated to Apollo, which influenced the fate of states and individuals for about 1000 years.
We depart from Athens in the morning via the national highway and pass by the towns of Thebes, Levadia and Arachova. Arriving in Delphi we’ll visit Castalia Spring and the main archaeological site (the Temple of Apollo, the Treasury of the Athenians, the Theatre, the Stadium,etc.) and the Museum with the famous statue of Antinoos and the unique bronze statue of the Charioteer dated from 475 B.C.
Our lunch in a traditional Greek restaurant in the picturesque town of Delphi, after our visit to the sites, will be the perfect way to recharge our batteries and enjoy the local cuisine.
After lunch, heading back towards the archaeological site, we’ll have a stop to see the ruins of the Temple of Athena Pronea and the Tholos.
Driving down the mountain Parnassos and before reaching the national highway to Athens, we’ll stop again at Cheronia to see the famous “Lion of Cheronia”. The “Lion” is a marble monument erected in the battlefield by Phillip, King of Macedonia and father of Alexander the Great, to commemorate his victory there against the Athenian and Thebean armies in 338 B.C.
EXTENDED DELPHI TOUR
Driving up the mountain Parnassos in the morning and before we reach Delphi we’ll visit the famous monastery of “Ossios Loukas”.
Ossios Loukas is the largest surviving monastery of the Middle Byzantine period in Greece. It was founded in the early 10th century by the hermit St. Loukas whose relics are kept in the monastery to this day.
The Katholikon has some of the best preserved Byzantine mosaics.
The spectacular mountain view from the monastery’s courtyard and the welcoming shade of the old pine trees make this an ideal place to enjoy a cup of Greek coffee.
Duration: approximately 10 hours.

Admission fees and lunch are not included in the price of the tour.
