Full description

Depart Athens and drive through the fertile plain of Boeotia, crossing the town of Thebes, world-renowned for its tragic story of King Oedipus. Continue through the picturesque towns of Livadeia and Arachova on the slopes of Mount Parnassus. Upon arrival at Delphi, explore the "Omphalos" ("Navel of the Earth").

Marvel at the ruins of an ancient sanctuary that grew rich as the seat of the oracle. Learn how its influence extended beyond the confines of the Hellenic world, and take in the views of a landscape of unparalleled beauty. See the remains of the Sanctuary of Apollo Pythios, and visit the Treasury of the Athenians. Look at the remaining columns of the Temple of Apollo, and go to the Delphi Archaeological Museum where masterpieces of Ancient Greek sculpture can be found.

Look at the legendary Charioteer of Delphi, regarded as one of the finest bronze sculptures of the ancient world. See the statue of the athlete Aghias and other artifacts from antiquity. Enjoy lunch in the modern village of Delphi, before the return trip to Athens by the same route (if selected). A short stop in Arachova will be provided for your comfort. 

Clients staying on the coast will depart for their hotels from the local supplier's terminal at around 7:30 PM.

The excursion is smooth and well organised. The guide was amazing and provided with many details and stories that involved Delphi and the traditions of the time. The temple was suggestive and it fall between rocks around the mount Parnassus. That place got a spiritual charge worth to living. I gave 4 starts and not 5 because I think the tour should improve with the middle stops, which are obviously required, but there is not much to see apart a service petrol station and a small ski village full of souvenir shops which aren’t personally my thing. The food at the restaurant was good. Drinks aren’t included if buy the menu with the ticket, but it’s very affordable.

It was very informative, CASSANDRA made us know and share these beautiful stories of the Greek gods and this beautiful site of Delfi in two languages that she masters perfectly (English and French). Thank you CASSANDRA and SOCRATES for this beautiful day of sharing. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT TO YOU

The day tour to Delphi was great. The bus was spacious, easily recognizable at the pick-up point, and left on time. Our guide brought us into the archeological site and museum and provided the same commentary in English and French, and that's fine with us. Arachova was slightly disappointing compared to Delphi as we had only 15-20 minutes to walk around for photos before heading back to Athens. The other downside is that the restaurant where lunch was served is not near Arachova. As we did not order lunch, we could not use the one hour lunch break to walk around or explore that town.
