Busy as most of these archeological sites are in Greece. Early is the time to go. Even so there are a lot of people in this popular site. there are several stations with descriptions and some history in Greek, English and French.

A tough walk but is well worth a visit after touring Delphi. The ruins are amazing to view and the reconstruction is also useful to see.

Even if you know just a very little or almost nothing about the Greec mythology, this place will get you anyway. Hard to describe.

The informational signs are unclear, missing, or so faded from sunlight that they're illegible. But the temple is glorious. Use your imagination. This is the place where Socrates read "know thyself" on the wall and became inspired.

You can visit it with a daily trip from Athens (it a couple of hour drive) or even better you could stay in the region for a couple nights to visit the whole area which is quite beautiful (Arachova, Galaxidi, Itea etc).

Wow! I think the sites at Delphi including the Temple of Apollo rival the Acropolis and Partheon in Athens. It is a bit of a hike from Athens to see this but worth the day!

Part of a larger complex of ruins and this is the most important piece. Taking in the ruins and their place in the shadow of Mount Parnassus was an experience that will stay with you.
