The temple is and it's surroundings are beautiful, so much to see, and a good price of 6 euros to see it all (not including museum), got lucky and saw it on a beautiful sunny day, the next two days was rain, must see this in sunny weather to fully appreciate it.

Absolutely stunning views from up here. There's so much to learn about and explore here. Visiting Delphi and the neighboring towns were the highlight of all of my time in Greece.
