Greatest place in Greece

Delphi is the most sacred place in Greece. The temple of Athena Pronaia is a very special place to meditate and so is the walk up to the Sanctuary of Apollo.

Not too far of a drive from Athens. The place is magical in a great setting. The ruins were nice, but nothing spectacular. The main focus is the setting and what went on. The footsteps that were left behind. I definitely recommend going earlier as a big tour came in 5 min after we arrived and changed the ambiance quite... More

I couldn't get over the fact that you were over 1000 ft from the sea in these incredibly beautiful mountains, then there are all these ruins amongst them. Though there are many steps, it can be accomplished by most unless in a wheelchair, though crutches or walkers would be difficult. Truly amazing to see all the pillars, columns and Large... More

This is one of the most magic places I've ever visited! Delphi is a two-hour drive by car from Athens. It is a comfortable day trip from the capital, so if you're visiting Athens, don't miss this out. This was one of the holiest places in the ancient world and everybody who was anybody in the ancient world has been... More

Easy bus ride from Athens (allow 3 hours each way). All of the sites in Delphi can be seen in a few hours. Go early to beat the crowds, and don't forget to hike down to the temple of Athena. Return tickets can be purchased at the restaurant in town. Buses depart frequently during peak season.

This is a wonderful and well preserved archeological site. Will transport you back through time. Make sure you have plenty of water and good walking shoes, especially if its a hot day, or go early.

Surprisingly the ruins were not very crowded compared to other sites, despite arriving around 10am. The slopes to the top are steep and can be slippery, but there are some areas of shade to hide under to rest. Informative signs and stunning views. Well worth going to especially if you combine it with a visit to the excellent museum.

The oracle site climbs up a hillside covered in wildflowers in spring and is well maintained and interpreted. We hired a private guide and learned so much more about what the site represents and what it means to Greek history and the history of modern civilization. Truly one of the most beautifully situated of all the ruins we visited.

Read up on the story of Pythia (the Oracle) before venturing into the museum and the ruins site. The Temple of Apollo has just a few columns restored, but the museum has many artifacts for imagining life here at its peak. Park your car in town near your hotel and walk the 1/2 mile or so to the museum and... More
