It can take a fair deal to keep a 10 year old occupied at an ancient ruins, but a combination of an excellent guide and the plentiful bounty at Delphi easily achieved that. We took a long bus ride (3 hours) from Athens but the site was worth it. Hidden for many years the site was the home to the... More

You can't get more steeped in history. Read some Greek mythology before you go and don't ruin your visit by being on a group tour.

Took a day trip from Athens to Delphi (and back). We were glad we did. The ruins in Delphi are extremely impressive, and really one of the things you should see while in Greece. We got a taxi from Plaka to the bus terminal in Athens (impossible to find by public transport) which cost 10 euros, then a bus to... More

The Pagan centre of the Greek world for a thousand years, a place where you can still perhaps believe it is possible to talk to the God Apollo. The museum has some great pieces, I really loved the Sphinx but must warn other visitors that you are not allowed to pose in front of it. I had asked my husband... More

These were fantastic. And we loved going back in time to see how it was in those days. Very interesting. We enjoyed the walk around.

Delphi is one of the most stunning sites in Greece. It mixes beautiful and well preserved archaeological elements with a grandiose natural site. The cliffs surrounding it are impressive and the nature is lovely, with birds, flowers and foliage mixed with the old stones. A truly inspiring place to visit in all seasons.

We did a day trip from Athens - the bus drive was excellent - scenery amazing. Was surprised - or not - to see fellow travellers playing with their phones all the way there - did they know what they where missing out on!!! We could have spent longer here - but of course time constraints on the tour. Make... More

While in Athens one should book a tour to Delphi. The ancient Greeks believed Delphi was the center of the world, and the ruins are a testament to the sanctity of this place. Tucked away in the mountains about two hours from Athens, the Oracle at Delphi offers a stunning glimpse of antiquity. Points of interest include the Temple of... More
