The ancient Greeks were way ahead modern times with their knack for prime real estate. Spectacular mountain vistas from the Temple of Apollo ( and so are the rest of Delphi) awaited us. Hard to imagine this temple ( and the rest of Deplhi) survived until 390 AD when it was destroyed by overzealous Christians in their attempt to eradicate... More

It is an amazing place to visit. SO much history, and it gives you chills. I wish time could go back to experience those historic times.

So much history within a few square meters. It's absolutely incredible. The whole site is beautiful. Climbing all those steps might seem hard but is well worth it!

The center of all the action. Was an extraordinary structure before being destroyed by the Romans and Christians.

A highlight of our trip. The bus ride is intense as you ascend ever higher to reach this destination, but it is worth it. The ruins are amazing and you stand awestruck as you realize when and how they built this city in the mountain. The museum fills in any holes from the tour. Our tour guide was very thorough.... More

Climbing in the heat can be hard, but it is certainly worth it! The surrounding landscape is just as impressive, I could have stood and just looked out for hours! Walking among the ruins is just fantastic, and the various monuments are incredible. We hired a car from Athens and did the drive ourselves which took about 2 hours and... More

This place high in the Mt Parnassus region is brimming with history and is well worth a visit. We were taken there by G.O.Tours from Athens. Our guide was the best we had experienced, highly knowledgeable of the whole sight, which is vast in a perpendicular way. It is crammed with the ruins of dozens of ancients monuments to the... More

The Temple of Apollo at Delphi had a major influence over world events tor several centuries. Seeing the remains of the temple is awe inspiring. It's an easier climb from the sea by car or bus than it was in the centuries B.C.
