Definitely one of the best Greek archeological site. Be sure to be there in the morning before crowds and buses arrive. There is drinking fountain available on the site, you can refill your bottle. And don't forget visit impressive Athena temple down the road, this is such an amazing place. The museum is also interesting, have some very nice artifacts... More

Ancient, remote and impressive - Delphi has it all located only about four hours by bus north west of Athens, Delphis temples are not to be missed. There is a small entrance fee and a fair bit of trekking on foot to reach the top of the temples so pack lightly but other then that anyone with any level of... More

We took a day trip to Delphi where a local guide met us and brought us through the ruins. This is something that should not be missed. And use a guide. There was so much we learned because she was there to explain it and bring it to life. A beautiful place, full of history and wonder. Loved it!

A very worthwhile addition to a trip to Athens. Delphi is a gorgeous location and the ruins are very interesting as well. A lot of walking, especially uphill. A water bottle is recommended as there are taps on the way to fill up. A lot of the buildings of interest are not far up, but if you make it to... More

We enjoyed our time at the ruins more than the Acropolis, given the cooler mountain air, lack of crowds (or maybe we just avoided the tour buses), and variety of ruins. You can do as much or as little as you like, making your way to the amphitheater or up higher on the mountain.

It doesn't matter if archaeology is on your favorite list or not, Delphi ruins is a place not be missed. The unique combination of the so many different archaeological ruins together with the uphill setup makes it so special. It is a rather steep climb but don't even consider skipping the stadium at the very top of the place. Being... More

The most incredable place to experience. Spectular views of the countryside and then the Delphi ruins almost tucked into the mountain side is just mind boggoling - the feel of the place is truly breathtaking - the whole place emulates a sort of tranquility. Totally breathtaking. Just wish my school had done classices as WHAT a subject to study!

A guided is recommended. Most companies pick up from the hotel and get to Delphi in two hours. This is not recommended for less mobile. Sports shoes are recommended. The walk up to see the ruins and old Olympic grounds takes about 40 minutes. Gives you a good perspective of ancient Greek history and myths surrounding this era

I am sure people travelled here would agree that Delphi might be of use mostly to slow travelers and/or people who prefer to enjoy the landscape and the ambiance of a place rather than rush from place to place, but it worth to mention it here, just in case you are one of them. Delphi has amazing landscape, the almond,... More
