Having read so much Greek myth and stories about this place I took the opportunity to visit. I was staying in athens and I used expedia to arrange the trip- they provided a knowledgeable guide.

Awesome, so much history and so beautiful! Go early and beat the crowds. Make sure you visit the Temple of Athena and the museum as well.

Amazing and awe-inspiring. Staggeringly beautiful scenery and a sense of an ancient world. A lot of walking so be prepared but well worth the effort particularly the higher you go. Well worth a visit if near Athens.

There is not much left of the Apollo temple so to appreciate it best: - visit the museum first to help you re-build it in imagination - visit after 4 or 5pm (open until 8pm) for a much better light I do prefer the Tolos of Athena, a bit further down the road, on this other side of the road....

The Appolo Temple in Delphi is one of the best reconstructed temples we have seer. Gives the story about the oracle a new dimension.

The Oracle of Delphi, Sanctuary of Apollo, Temple of Apollo, Ruins of Delphi, or whatever name it might be called, was at the top of my list of travel locations for many years. Now that I have gone and seen it with my own eyes, I am happy that I did. Getting there was a challenge due to driving a... More

The Temple of Apollo was our first Greek Temple that we encountered, and it was jaw dropping. A must see ruin in Greece!

I wasn't sure where I was at until I stumbled upon the Temple of Apollo. Then it was clear that I was at the navel of the universe.
