As a history lover, the day trip we took to the Temple of Apollo was fantastic. We started in the museum, and wandered through for approximately 30 minutes. As we moved outside and slowly up the hill towards the Temple you can view the valley below and the mountains around you. While there is not much left of Delphi or... More

I took an all day tour to the Sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi. The bus drove past the birthplace of Hercules at Thebes north into increasingly mountainous terrain. The snow-capped peak of Mount Parnassus was gilt with sunlight. The bus wound around the mountain up narrow dirt roads. The Valley of Apollo where his olive groves grew was sparkling with... More

Welcome to the earth´s navel, a wonderful oracle, where Pythia, a woman in ancient Greece answered the people's riddles. You will walk up stairs, walk, pass by ancient monuments and then walk and there is the temple of Apollo. Behind it there is the theatre and after 4 mins walk the stadium. The view is magnificent.

Truly magical. You can feel the energy around you. Do not miss. Easy day trip from Athens but I stayed the night in the modern township of Delphi. A must do for history buffs.

You could feel the history all around you at these ruins. You could almost see the ancient Greeks all around. A magical experience and one not to be missed. John & Gail Laney

Yes, you do not expect actually to see a temple, there is not much left. However, if you know the history or have read the myths, you know what an awesome place it is and how many history-changing decisions were taken there. So, I would say it is a must see for history and culture-lovers and it offers an amazing... More

The view from a little higher up in the site was great. We were there at 8:30am just as the sun was rising in the east and casting its rays on the ruins - the effect was magical.
