We decided to visit the site. Overall a nice experience. We visited the museum nearby for the kids to see (seen it in the past when I was a kid). Everything was well organized and we saw all ruins and amphitheatre. Polite staff on the museum and ruins. The only drawback was the shop outside the museum which had 07.30-20.00... More

If you have the time while in Athens, take the day trip up to Delphi. The trip is worth it. The ruins were some of the best that I saw during the entire trip to Greece. The altitude allowed for some amazing views. The temple itself was impressive, but, as you hike up the hill, there is a small amphitheater,... More

Try to spend the night in the little town. Hotels are cheap and during the summer, the site is open until 8 pm. Go later in the day after all the day-trippers and tour buses have left for a much more pleasant experience. The ruins are on an incline so you will be constantly walking up but it really isn't...

Everything is so incredibly, stuning, espically on such high level, but take plenty of water to reach the stadium, it is worth.

We took a bus from Athens, and it was well worth it!! Be prepared to hike and walk up quite a ways, but you will be rewarded! Bring water, especially if it's warm. The stadium was astonishing - so well preserved. The entire site is really what you come to Greece to see, and is a great example of the... More

We drove from Paleros, near Lefkas, which is about 270km one way, arriving late in the day. Was confusing with the large empty parking lot but drove through the village and presto, there we were.We parked on the side of the road and saw the Sanctuary of Athena then drove a short distance back end entered the main grounds.
