Overview
Visit Delphi – one of the most important archeological sites in Greek history – on this full-day trip from Athens! Traveling with an expert guide, you’ll explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town, home to the Temple of Apollo, and stroll around Delphi Archeological Museum. Learn all about Greek mythology and history while seeing fascinating monuments, and visit the pretty town of Arachova on the journey back to Athens.
Highlights
  • Visit ancient Delphi from Athens in one smooth, stress-free day
  • Travel to and from the mountain site with ease by air-conditioned coach
  • Tour the Temple of Apollo, monuments, and museum with insight from a guide
  • Upgrade to include lunch for a complete experience
What to Expect
Book your preferred tour option and depart central Athens for Delphi by climate-controlled coach. En route, hear about the ancient Greek civilization that thrived from the eighth century BC to 400 AD and see Levadia and Arachova, towns known for their colored carpets. Once in Delphi, head to the UNESCO-listed mountainside archaeological site, one of Greece’s most significant. Next, tour the ruins as your guide sheds light on the site’s oracle, an ancient priestess who conveyed messages from the god Apollo. Admire the Temple of Apollo and other monuments, and then visit the Archaeological Museum to view its artifacts, including the Charioteer of Delphi and Sphinx of Naxos. Following a hotel lunch or free time (depending on selected option), return to Athens, stopping in Arachova along the way to stretch your legs and grab a coffee (own expense). Your trip concludes at the original Athens starting point.

This was a very cultural trip to one of my favorite historical sites in Greece. Seeing it in person was really enlightening, and I would recommend anyone to do it!

The tour isn't the best structured that we've been on. The tour of the ruins is rushed and we didn't go to the top of the hill. The other stops for food and shopping are not great either because the places are very quiet. We...More

A must for history buffs though I'd think it fascinating for anyone else. The guide, Maria, was very knowledgeable and provided sufficient free time to explore.

I know that the bus can pick up three people. I don’t know, however, whether it would pick you up at the Hotel Herodion: You would have to ask the operator.

For three different day trips in Greece, we called and the drivers picked us up and returned us to our VRBO. In Crete we had to pay more, but it was well worth it. We tipped well to accommodating drivers.
