On this day tour to Delphi from Athens you'll get to visit an ancient historic site, and a place the Greeks once considered to be the center of the world! Get ready to explore a famous ancient sanctuary, and the seat of Pythia, with a local host and guide on a day tour to remember!

What to expect?

  • See quite a lot on this one-day Delphi tour, including a visit to the Treasury of the Athenians, the Temple of Apollo and the museum. Carved into the temple were the phrases: γνώθι σαυτόν (gnothi seauton = “know thyself” ) and μηδέν άγαν (mēdén ágan = "nothing in excess"). Lunch in the village of Delphi. Return to Athens early in the evening.

  • Drive through the fertile plain of Beotia, crossing the towns of Thebes connected with the tragedy of King Oedipus - Levadia and Arachova (short stop on the way back).

  • Arrive at Delphi, the center of Ancient World - the "Omphalos" (Navel of Earth) - whose prestige extended far beyond the boundaries of the Hellenic World. On the slopes of Mount Parnassus, in a landscape of unparalleled beauty and majesty, lie the ruins of the Sanctuary of Apollo Pythios.

  • Visit the Treasury of the Athenians, the Temple of Apollo and the Museum containing such masterpieces of Ancient Greek sculpture as the bronze Charioteer and the famous athlete Aghias. Lunch in the modern village of Delphi, return to Athens by the same route.
