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.

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. The main temple itself is best viewed above from a height, the entrance to where the Pythia sat can be missed so be careful not... More

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....
