Amazing Wonder of the World

Incredible place. The ruins at Delphi are every bit as impressive as the Acropolis in Athens. Absolutely worth a visit.

Went to Delphi for 1 night. Small town with just 4 streets, a day trip is better. Hotel had a great view of the Ionic sea. Not much to do . It was very hot , so the hike down was pretty intense.

The Delphi Ruins are shrouded in mysticism and ancient legends. It's believed it was the site of the most important Oracle of ancient Greece. It is a very special experience to walk amongst these ruins. Take plenty of time to do this. Set in a spectacular location against the craggy peak of Mt Parnassus, you walk through thick lowland trees... More

Amazing place. You do not need a guide to enjoy both Temples. Steep climb to the top but well worth it.

It could be that it's an ancient civilisation where the Gods were called upon for their advice or just the cicadas but there was something strangely serene about Delphi. It's a three-hour drive from Athens but I highly recommend it. We engaged a taxi (with a pre-arranged flat rate) to take us to avoid being part of a tour and... More

It was our first visit on an archeological site in Greece and we must say that the site is spectacular. It is located along the slopes of Mount Parnassus and you can just picture yourselves 2500 years ago watching a Greek tragedy on top of the Theater with 5000 other spectators over the Appolon Temple. The stadium is also fantastic... More

When in Athens, visit Delphi! It's more than a two-hour drive from Athens but the trip itself is very tour. The Temple of Apollo and the Museum is very educational for our not-so-little daughter.

My family had a great time touring and the children loved it. One of the most fascinating places is at the top where there is an old Olympic field.

The site is 2+ hours outside of Athens. Easy drive. The site itself is located on the side of a mountain so there is somewhat of a steep walk but not really too bad. There is an entrance fee and a museum.The museum does a good job of explaining the site and displaying recovered items. Restroom facilities and snack shop... More

The ruins at Delphi are located on multiple terraces along the slope of Mount Parnassus, and includes the Sanctuary of Apollo, the site of the ancient Oracle. This semicircular spur is known as Phaedriades, and overlooks the Pleistos Valley. The Athenian Treasury, Stoa of the Athenians, ruins of the Temple of Apollo, and many other identified ruins are located here,... More
