Overview



The grandeur of Delphi has to be seen to be believed.

Welcome to the grandeur of Delphi, where nature and ancient ruins blend in an extraordinary way, enhancing the beauty of one another against a setting of mountains, terraces and trees.

Situated on the slopes of Mount Parnassos, hundreds of feet above the sea, it is easy to see why Delphi was once believed to be the center of the earth. Listen to your guide as he tells you the fascinating history of the Sanctuary of Apollo, the paved Sacred Way, and the Doric temple of Apollo. In its Adyton the High Priestess "Pythia" sat on a tripod and delivered the oracles. Admire the Theatre and the Stadium, used for the main events of the Pythian Festival, located on terraces above the Temple. To the right of the entrance to the Sanctuary is the Kastalian Fountain, where Pythia washed before speaking her prophecies. Across and below the road from the Spring you will find the Marmaria, or Sanctuary of Athena, with the conspicuous building of Tholos.

Your visit continues to the Museum, containing a rare and exquisite collection of archaic sculpture including the world famous Charioteer. After your visit, return to your vehicle for your drive back to the pier.
