Description

Discover the archaeological site and museum of Delphi on a day trip from Athens. Follow your guide to some of the most prominent edifices on the sacred slopes of Delphi including the temple of Apollo, the ancient theater, the stadium, and the various treasuries that adorn the sacred way. Depart Athens and drive for 2 hours to Levadia. Hop off the bus at your first stop for a stretch and refreshments (at your own expense). Continue to Arachova, a town famous for its bright multi-colored carpets, before reaching Delphi. Head to the foot of Mount Parnassus to the sanctuary of Delphi, once home to the most famous oracle in Ancient Greece. Set in a spectacular landscape, see what was a cultural and religious center for the Greek world for centuries. Visit this historic archaeological site with ruins dating back to the 4th century B.C. Start with the ruins of the incredible Temple of Apollo followed by the ancient theater, featuring 35 rows and space for up to 5000 spectators. Then, head to the Delphi Museum to see more archeological treasures, including the unique bronze statue of the Charioteer dedicated to Apollo in 478 B.C. After your guided visit, enjoy an hour of free time before boarding the bus for your return trip to Athens.
