Gotta know what you're looking at. That circular building is not the Oracle.

Little site to see all the common Greek town staples like a temple, theater, agora and stadium. If you've seen a ton of these before (like in Turkey) there won't be a ton of new things to see. You really gotta dig deep into specifically how each ruin used to fuction to get someone out of this (like where the pythia would inhale halucinagenic gas and where they sacrificed the animals).

We visited the archeological site at Delphi before, and we wanted to see it again. It was as beautiful as we remembered, and I highly recommend: Apollo Temple, Athena Temple, the archaeological museum.

Wonderful do not miss!

We almost changed our minds about visiting Delphi ....only because it was extra mileage on a Peloponnese trip. Thank goodness we didn’t. It’s a truly awesome site. Worth every extra kilometre . The ruins, the setting ......all first class. Magical! Just go there from Athens and cross the bridge at Patras onwards to the Peloponnese.

Magnificent and well-preserved ancient ruins.
The one negative point is that the Gymnasium was not open.

Impressive and imaginery
Aug 2020
Of course one of the top attractions in Greece and a must see and know about the history of Apollo.... But there is more to see, like the theatre and the impressive stadium which can be compared with Olympia. What is hard to understand is that on such an important archeological site there are no audio guided tours available or even better a 3D VR glass to make it even more realistic (e.g. like in Olympia).
Free public information about the various impressive buildings may be improved in my opinion. The museum does better and offers a very good preserved collection of the ancient excavations. Well worth a visit when you are nearby!

Just Beautiful
Aug 2020
We visited the two archeological sites (Teh main site and the temple of Athena Pronaia) at the end of the day.
Less people, beautiful light, a lot of emotions. Because of Covid situation the place was quite empty. It was magical. If you go ther do not forget to get up at the gymanium. It is amazing

Wonderful ruins in a beautiful setting
Aug 2020 • Couples
We did a day trip to Delphi from Athens and had a great time. The ruins of the Sanctuary of Apollo is absolutely beautiful, made even better by the dramatic mountain setting. We were lucky that we went the number of visitors was much smaller due to Covid, so it felt like we had the place to ourselves. It's a bit of a hike up to the top of the site to the stadium so make sure you where comfortable shoes. We got the 10.30 coach out and got the 18.00 return for €30, the entrance fee (which includes the nearby museum) is €12.

Like a mini-Machu Picchu

Worth every minute to get here from Athens! It was about a 2-hour ride, during which our driver Markos showed us a video about Delphi narrated by Leonard Nimoy, so we went in with a rather decent understanding of the history of the place.

According to Greek mythology, Delphi is the exact center of the universe. It was an international crossroads, so the priests who went there to communicate with Apollo via the priestess Pythia were well-informed as to goings on outside the country and could thus make semi-accurate predictions.

Have fun with the acoustics here! At one point, my mother-in-law and I were standing at the TOP of the ampitheater while her husband was at the BOTTOM. She softly spoke his name, and he looked up at us with a surprised look on his face! We then scooted over a few feet, said his name again, and he couldn't hear us anymore. Pretty cool....
