Came here our first full day in Greece, worth the three hour bus ride from Athens. The ruins were amazing to see, and the views were gorgeous. This site and the museum took us about 3.5 hours to see, with plenty of stops for photos. Try to go as early as possible before it gets really hot. Be sure to... More

Get a tour guide if you can. A great tour guide made us feel like we were visiting as in ancient times and the we understood the magnitude of our visit to the shrine.

Must see historic site in mainland Greece. The location is amazing on the side of the mountain. The museum is very good. I would recommend staying the night in Delphi and visiting in the morning before the tour bus hordes arrive. The town itself is a pleasant place to spend the evening.

Great museum, amazing site. Took us about 2 hours to drive from Piraeus along good roads. Hot in July, wear a hat and such!

The archeological site of Delphi is something that you cannot miss. Walking the walk is a lengthy one, so make sure you pack enough water and sunscreen. I would definitely recommend three hours for this site. Don't forget to see the Tholos as well. I would do the site first and then cool off with the museum.

Delphi is definitely worth a visit. It is a great site, but bring your walking shoes and a guide book. The site is all on a slope so you should plan to walk uphill. Don't forget to go down the street to the Temple of Athena. If you stay in Delphi town you can go early before the buses from... More

We went there as a part of a 4 day tour. The combination of the ruins, the history, and the view made this our favorite site. The museum was not large but filled with amazing artifacts. The walk up the hill was definitely not an easy one but doable for almost everyone.

You really need a guide to get the most out of this place. I loved it and our guide was super. Not an easy walk but I also enjoyed the challenge.
