  • Enjoy a scenic drive through the Mount Parnassus region

Start the tour with pickup from your hotel in Athens, and set off on 182 km drive northwest towards Delphi. Follow the road that leads to the awe-inspiring Mount Parnassus, one of the highest mountains in Greece. Enjoy a break in Arahova, a picturesque village where you can discover the local eateries and shops, traditional stone-built houses, and scenic cobbled streets.  Then, continue on to the nearby archaeological site of Delphi, an extraordinary site where the cult of the Greek God, Apollo, was developed for over 1000 years. Either explore on your own or choose the option to include a private tour with a licensed English-speaking guide who is authorized to enter all the archaeological sites with you.  Proceed into the archaeological site to see the restored Treasury of the Athenians, the ruins of the temple of Apollo, and the open-air theater for religious festivities. Absorb the view of the dramatic surrounding landscape. If time and energy allow, continue walking uphill to reach the impressive Roman Stadium where athletic competitions were held throughout the Greek and Roman times. After this, visit the Archaeological Museum which holds the statue of young Antinous, the bronze statue of the Charioteer and pieces of the ivory-and-gold statues of Apollo and Artemis. Enjoy a lunch break in the picturesque village of Delphi. Choose one of the taverns facing the remarkable view of the Gulf of Corinth and the innumerous olive trees in the valley below.  Complete your visit with a short walk towards the small sanctuary of Athena, with the much-photographed ruins of the Tholos marble monument. Find out more about the relative legends and the history of the region. Finally, return to Athens following the same route.
