One of the oldest and probably most important sights in the ancient world. Revered by everyone. Steep climbing and a good distance to the top. Museum is first class. Allow more than 3 hours and go with a guide. Only food available is in small town at the sight. Wear supportive shoes.

It is a ruin site that is a must see! The archeological sites include both the temple of Apollo and temple of athens (and the beautiful thollos). Do get the entrance ticket for both the archeological site and museum (cheaper). We went on our own by taking the bus from bus terminal B at lioson street. A day trip is... More

We took a nearly full day tour here from Athens and it was well worth it. Even the ride out was interesting, and the ruins were pretty spectacular. My wife and I usually avoid tours and guides on vacations. We mostly prefer to explore on our own. However, I think that without a guide we would have really missed out... More

This was a nice change of pace from the ruins in Athens. We were able to get closer to the ruins in Delphi than in Athens. Unfortunately, due to rain the stadium was closed. It sometimes will close for several days after a rain. Therefore, if you are planning a trip, pay attention to the weather and try to visit... More

If you are visiting Arachova don't miss a ride to Delphi ruins. It's just 10 min drive and for sure it worth it. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes as it is rocky on the way up. If you are not familiar with the history there are signs that you can read alternatively make sure you book a guide before... More

I really knew very, very little about Delphi, and was amazed. The drive into the mountains alone is enough to blow your mind. Cap it off with Delphi and our great tour guide - couldn't have asked for a better day trip.

This is a bit of a steep walk to get through the site, but worth the effort in reaching this remote location. The history is palpable, and the site is amazingly beautiful. Anyone who's read about the Oracle must come to this place, and experience it firsthand.

The ruins are on a steep incline, so not really suitable for anyone with mobility issues, but there is a cafe and souvenir shop on the lower level where you can still admire the view across the valley and the dozens and dozens of cats and kittens. The site closes around 16:00 in the winter, so go there before the... More
