I have no words except WOW. The most spectacular views combined with interesting and beautiful ruins really creates the wow factor. A must see if you visit Greece. I've travelled all over the world, seen the pyramids at Egypt, the taj mahal and the anghor wat temples at Siemreap. This is easily up there with them. Seriously do it!!!! Also... More

After the Acropolis, Delphi is the most popular archaeological site in Greece, considered the center of the known world, the place where heaven and earth met. This was the place on earth where man was closest to God.

Delphi, a UNESCO world heritage site, is easily reached from Athens by car or bus and could be done in one day, although an overnight stay allows you to reach the site early in the morning before the heat. The surroundings are beautiful, particularly on a sunny day as you walk, and climb, through Delphi. There is parking along the... More

On our Greek travels we saw Olympia, Mycenae, Epidaurus, the sites in Athens (Acropolis and Agora), Corinth, and Delphi...and this was our favorite. Now, it may have helped that we went on a Friday evening in July, when it wasn't too busy. And a thunderstorm was rumbling over the mountains, though it produced only a light rain, so the weather...

We recently went to explore Greece around the Gulf of Corinth and popped in here-motivated by Joanna Lumley's Discovery channel viewing. The place of the Oracle is beautifully preserved and a reminder of where civilization truly began! You can drink the water straight out of the streams and the walk up the slope of the mountain where all the ruins... More

Walking through the ruins is amazing and incredible due to the age of it. The Oracle at Delphi is a must see while in Greece. Enjoyed very much. Went in June 1999 as a summer camp. Will never forget this place walking through the temples

My husband and I visited Delphi and absolutely loved it. We spent two days touring the site and visiting the museum. There is a lot of walking involved but it is absolutely worth it for all of the amazing ruins there. All ruins are marked with educational markers giving the name and background of each piece, which is incredibly helpful.... More

My friends and I went on a day trip from Athens to Delphi and we were not disappointed. We started by going to the museum where there are rooms FULL of amazing artefacts found in the ruins. They were all beautiful but most amazing was the charioteer who was perfectly preserved. We then went to the ruins, it was wonderful... More

This place is a must see. Well preserved with majority of the temples intact. Make the effort to go all the way up to the stadium it is amazing. You can spend hours here. The museum is about 400 metres from edge of town and then it is about 1km uphill to the top of the ruins (stadium) and then... More
