The ruins are probably the best I've seen in my life, aling with the Imperium Fora of Rome. They are well preserved, considering their age, and set in a beautiful place on a cliff side surrounded by olive trees fields.

One of us wanted to take the day trip to Delphi and the other (me) did not. But I am glad I did. This trip was well worth the effort - a couple of hours out of Athens by bus with a company called Key Tours. The tour guide, Marianna Tsigaridou, helped make the visit more memorable. As usual, with... More

A very surreal experience. We were there when the weather was quite warm but the cross breeze cooled us down enough in that it wasn't that bad. I loved the ruins here. You climbed up the mountain to see different areas and as you did so the views of the valley got that much more amazing to look down on.... More

Spiritual experience, they say this is where the world originated from, the navel of the earth. 3 hours drive approximately , not an easy place to enjoy if you don't enjoy watching ruins. Long walk in the mountains, if you are just a tourist don't go. But if you are a traveler, and wishes to know the historical and cultural... More

if you're anywhere in mid or south Greece you really have to get to Delphi. The setting is sublime - literally half the way up a mountain, and the site is intact enough to make it understandable. For instance you can stand on the stage of the theatre and listen to the amazing acoustics. And one of the small temples... More

There are many favorable reviews of Delphi and they are all correct. If you do not have a guide, do a little homework and read about the history of Delphi before you go. The myths include Zeus wanting to find the center of the world where he thought he would be close to both heaven and earth. Read about how... More

If you come without a guide or a good guide book, you might just see rabble that worse nothing. Be prepared get a good guide or a book (we've used Rick Steves) Then it becomes much more interesting, and also not too overwhelming.

What we read about in history at school - we never thought it was this big! Just climb it, the stadion at the top is worth the heat and all the stairs! How could they get horses up there??
