I really loved Ancient Delphi for all its splendor overlooking the valley. The stories that tie into the history make exploration that much more fun. The Temple of Apollo is one of the must sees on the walk and is amazing in all its splendor. We were so happy that we made the choice to drive to Delphi as part... More

We found a book with pictures of " before and now" - this made it very funny. We shared with families we met, the children got very interested. The price was €12, but made the ruins very alive, not only a pile of stones.

The place where The Oracle resided according to the myth. You can definitely feel something in the air there. Traveled with my husband in mid Aug 2015. We were lucky, because we got to the site sort of early, approx. 10:30 in the morning and there were not too many people there (as it was later when we were going... More

Incredible place on the side of Mt. Parnassus. Zeus sent two eagles with stones to find the center of the world and they met over Delphi. The temple ruins, dating back to around 700 B.C., still leave the visitor with a feeling of being in an awe-inspiring place. A climb to the stadium where the Panhellenic games were once played...

Excellent site with lots of climbing needed to get to the stadium. Plenty to see. Great views from almost anywhere on the site. Bring water.

Most of the ruins in Delphi are mostly tumbled rocks and few columns. Temple of apollo is no different. To get certain perspective and get your imagination going, it is a good idea to hire an experienced site guide. They tell you lot more about the site and explain what has happened throughout the history at the site.

Get a good tour guide or information explaining how the temple was built and the activities around it. The best view it from the amphitheatre on the top (definitely worth the walk)
