The Tholos is nice but there’s not much to see. You can even see it form a little terrace aside the road if you are too tired after seeing all the action up the hill, as my kids were. As far as what is above:...More

A shrine different from the others, enough remains to give an idea of its function. Worth the trip down to it.

It is definitely worth the extra 10 minute walk from the main Delphi archaeological site to come here. The ruins alone are worth it but you can also get awesome views of the main site in Delphi.

Tucked in the mountainous area of the beautiful city of Delphi. It sits opposite from the Temple of Apollo. You would thoroughly enjoy spending time here and taking in all of the natural beauty that surrounds the ruins.

You have to walk down the sidewalk next to the road to get to this area. It is a bit of a walk but the ruins are interesting and the crowds were smaller.

This is a great little temple on the side of a hill down from the main road. It is a unique round temple to Athena, and worth the short trek down the hill.

It is a free attraction that a lot of people overlook when they visit Delphi. It was a nice historical site to visit. It is worth while to visit and walk around to see the historical artifacts.

Hire a car. Stay 2 nights in Delphi - you get a room in a small hotel fairly cheap - then you have a whole day for the ruins. Have an evening meal at the Dion.
