This ruin is in middle of beautiful valley. I am not really an archaeological person but it still amazed me. For me the high light of this place is the beautiful surroundings view. One thing to notice though, during Greece Easter this place close much earlier at 3pm.

This is a large archaeological site and involves a lot of walking up and down hills. The history and the mythology make it a very special place....the center of the world by some standards and the closest place to God. Well worth the walk. And don't miss the museum.

It is really worth visiting but bear in mind that it is on a cliff so you have to walk upwards all the time. However, the views from there are indeed rewarding.

Well marked and set up tourist paths are great. Fantastic views! Make sure you do some reading before you go or splurge on a guide to bring all this history and buildings to life.

A great one day excursion whilst in Athens . a good three hours needed to soak in the magic of this ancient oracle site. Great weather supplemented this visit . History at its best , ensure you add the monastery of hosios lukas as part of the visit too !

This was my favorite site in Greece. Beautiful. You'll need a couple of hours, and be sure to walk up to the stadium which is largely intact and gorgeous.

The sheer beauty of the setting apart from the ruins. There was absolutely nothing to detract from the site.

Went there via bus and spent 3 hours and it was perfect! Weather cooperated, rain stopped and the sun shine brightly and went to the ruins. Climbing to the very top and see it all was breathtaking. Must see when you visit Greece.

If there is a single one day excursion that you have to make from Athens, Delphi is the one. And while you are at it make sure you club it with the monastery of Hosios Lukas
