The location on Mount Parnassus was perfect site to built the temple of Apollo. It was majestic place with an amazing view. The town of Delphi was just a stone throw away..and great place to explore.

Mostly in ruins but a nice and peaceful historic place. Definite visit. I would suggest start the days visit from this site and then proceed to ruins and museum

The temple of Apollo is set amongst a number of other fascinating ruins and it is well worth walking to the top of the hill. You will see the athletic track and a great amphitheater the setting is beautiful and very inspiring. A must do in Greece

"Temple of Apollo” is one of the best points on the site (upper city). When you are here you need to take some time and imagine this place - how it was then...

This is an integral part of the Delfi ruins so don't miss it! It is best to have a guided tour to properly understand the complex ramifications of this site.

there is no way to visit the Delphi Ruins and not see the Temple of Apollo. One of the best points at the site.
