Full description

Discover the archaeological site and museum of Delphi on a day trip from Athens. Follow your guide to some of the most prominent edifices on the sacred slopes of Delphi including the temple of Apollo, the ancient theater, the stadium, and the various treasuries that adorn the sacred way.

Depart Athens and drive for 2 hours to Levadia. Hop off the bus at your first stop for a stretch and refreshments (at your own expense). Continue to Arachova, a town famous for its bright multi-colored carpets, before reaching Delphi. Head to the foot of Mount Parnassus to the sanctuary of Delphi, once home to the most famous oracle in Ancient Greece. Set in a spectacular landscape, see what was a cultural and religious center for the Greek world for centuries. Visit this historic archaeological site with ruins dating back to the 4th century B.C. Start with the ruins of the incredible Temple of Apollo followed by the ancient theater, featuring 35 rows and space for up to 5000 spectators. Then, head to the Delphi Museum to see more archeological treasures, including the unique bronze statue of the Charioteer dedicated to Apollo in 478 B.C. After your guided visit, enjoy an hour of free time before boarding the bus for your return trip to Athens.

The guide has a degree in history so it was super informative. He was also very charismatic so he brought the story he told to life. I really enjoy that since it brings the rings to live. We also got to stop by a nearby town since we had some time. It was beautiful! Lunch was also great. The restaurant had the best view. I recommend you choose the lunch option but even if you don't like I did, you can join them and pay on your own. I highly recommend it.

All good apart from being asked to download trippi app the night before. The app runs on Bluetooth and depends on signal quality and number of users it often drops out. But it’s a complete waste of time because you can hear every word your guide says anyway. With trippi you just get it again through your headphones 3 seconds later. If you are far enough away that you can’t hear your guide then you also far enough away for the Bluetooth to not work ! Waste of time

Excellent day, very rewarding and well organized! We had a great day (despite the heat) in the company of our guide whose explanations, in French and English were really interesting! The 2h30 drive between Athens and Delphe finally passed quickly! Special mention to the bus driver who maneuvers his vehicle very well in the few narrow and technical passages! If you are looking for a Delphe tour from Athens, do not hesitate, you will not be disappointed!
