Some say his is the second most visited site in Greece. Come see why! Situated on the site of a mountain the views are spectacular and the ruins are well kept. It's a little work but hike to the upper level where the stadium is... You will not see anything like that any time soon. Great story... Great site.

We didn't take the KTEL buses and instead rented a car with a manual transmission to drive from Athens to Delphi. Loved Delphi by the way. Very peaceful drive. Loved visiting the ruins. The museum is worth going to just don't take pics of yourself or anybody with the relics because photographs of people with the relics are forbidden.

As is the case in Greece there are sights to seen that take a lengthy car/bus trip to get to. So try to include travel to other northern sights such as Meteora/Thermopylae, and others, with an overnight stay in accommodation to ensure the trip is cost efficient and sights are seen while distances are travelled. At Delphi be prepared to... More

I took a Meteora/Delphi 2 days trip with an agency and I wasn't really excited about Delphi. Most of the pictures of the trip were about Meteora so my expectetion were REALLY low. First of all, Delphi is in a moutain area so the view you have is just amazing. Also, our guide stopped at many places along the way... More

One enters at the south-east corner of the site, much as the pilgrims to the oracle would have, and then one wends one's way along the Sacred Way gradually climbing through the forum area where the pilgrims would have probably purchased their offerings. This area was followed on the next terrace by a number of "treasury" ruins. These were buildings... More

Beautiful drive through scenic hills and valleys. The Ruins were amazing well worth the trip and the climb up the steps. The museum was amazing. I loved all the cats.

This is one of the most important archaeological sites not only in Greece but worldwide. Even if you are not a history fan, a visit to the site is a must!

It is better to time your visit for the early morning or late afternoon (after checking seasonal opening times). A visit at midday can be marred both by intense heat and by a vast number of coach parties 'doing' Delphi in a day. After paying for entrance you will be given a map which is invaluable in relating the ruins... More

The site of this ancient ruin was stunning. No only the ruins themselves but the location. As we came around the mountain pass, a small town appeared with homes perched on the side of the cliffs like they were clinging on for dear life! It was stunning. The ruins themselves brought home the tremendous importance of the Oracles at Delphi.... More
