You'll probably run into lots of tour guides. If you aren't in the best of shape, take your time and enjoy the views. A great intro into the life and times of Ancient Greece.

Apollo was the main God the Oracle was dedicated to, so there is no surprise that the Temple is the highlight of the visit to Delphi. The columns are impressive, the surroundings are magnificent, but do not leave behind all the other rich features of the site. A plus: if you have been to Istanbul, try and find the original...

I enjoyed this site but my bus tour host skipped the Oracle location. The site is fantastic and I Ioved getting photos of the Treasury. There's also an Olympic track behind the museum. The museum highlight is the perfectly sculpted Charioteer. I also went into the tunnels where supposedly the Oracle's were breathing hallucinating gases, but I'm not sure if... More

Study History and you easily will realise the importance of the specific spot. The center of the anient world... No matter what, dispite the "bad" or "wrong", or weak culture policy, its a place you should visit. Special energy, special vibe, special expirience. Totally suggested.

I visited the temple of Apollo on a cold and windy day. It was still an amazing site with awesome views. You wind your way up the side of a hill, looking at ancient ruins. There are signs in English to help understand what you are seeing. Near the top is a pretty well preserved theater. At the very top... More

You'll walk right into history when you step onto the temple. So much to see and you'll get to see Mount Parnassus right in front of you.

If you are going to visit Delphi for any reason visit for this temple. What remains of the temple is magnificent to see and the view from the plateau is absolutely fantastic. Much of the ramp and foundations are still visible and everything is well signposted and easy to view. If you are in the area it is well worth... More
