We did this as a tour starting out of Athens. You can either stick with the guide or wander around yourself. We stayed (and all the other tourists on the tour) with the guide and she was fantastic. Explained all the key areas and highlighted where things were. Put your walking shoes on as it is up hill to the... More

Just a short pleasant walk from the Delphi ruins. However, the walk from the road to the actual site is a bit steep. Wear comfortable shoes and have lots of water.

We went to the Temple of Apollo near Delphi while on a trip to Athens. It's quite the drive to get there, but well worth it. Taking it all in, you're realize you're standing in a place that has existed for thousands of years and the structures or parts of structures were the ones that have been there the whole... More

The story of the Oracle was so fascinating and it was interesting to learn how in acient times people stood in long lines waiting to see the Oracle. Also intersting were... More

For 12 euros you get entrance to the museum and the archaeological site of the temple of Apollo. It would probably be better if you do the museum first then go to the site. You must go all the way up the hill to see the stadium - a bit of a climb but very much worth it. It is... More

This was the "navel" of the world, and has an amazing and well documented history - as the Oracle was consulted for centuries. Highly recommend touring this site with a guide, so fascinating, as well as a truly beautiful site.

We were there in July, it was very hot so we started in the air-conditioned museum. It was interesting and had many unique archaeological artifacts and interesting information. The temple of Apollo is an amazing structure, which fills you with awe. The amazing blue skies as a background – priceless.
