A classic!

Magnificent site, right in the middle of the majestic Parnassus mountains. The museum is a must see as it showcases a series of beautiful and impressive marble statues.

An ancient site, Delphi was the seat of the oracle which was consulted whenever important decisions were made. It was also the place where treasuries were established to house the loot and treasures which the ancient civilisation won in its wars. Make the effort to walk up the hill to see the original stadium where the first Pythian games were... More

We visited the Delphi archeological site and museum as part of a two week bus tour of Greece. We had a local guide as part of our tour for both the site and museum. Absolutely fascinating places to visit and not to missed. The local guide added so much more to the visit than just us wandering around ourselves, although all... More

We loved this ancient site full of history and mysticism. To imagine the wealth of architecture, oracle mystery and treasures while standing in the footsteps of Alexander the Great, the King of Argos and the like was magical. Be sure you go to the stadium at the top even though it's a bit of a climb then look across the... More

I saw it 40 years ago and revisited in my older years. Still as impressive and so iconically Greek. You have to see it. The views down to the valley are astonishing.

Some really impressive ruins and museum here, unfortunately ruined by officious staff particularly in the museum where you cannot even take a picture standing beside a statue for scale without being shouted at. The amphitheatre and stadium were both roped off, and you couldnt get a very good view of the latter at all. We spent two weeks touring the... More

Recently my husband and I toured this ancient site. We started at the Castalia Fountain where those entering the sanctuary of Apollo in ancient times would first purify themselves. Next we walked the Sacred Way as we approached the Temple of Apollo. The same way as the historian Plutarch, who was a priest of Apollo. If you decide to make... More

if you are interesting in History this Place is that one. Delphi was considered as the centre of the world by the Greeks. I think you need a competent guide to understand it's soul.

We booked the "Delphi Day Trip From Athens" with Viator. It was definitely a good tour and we were provided with ample time to view the site and museum. They also arranged a stop for lunch that was very good and well worth the price. It would have been nice to spend a little more time in the town that... More

Took a local bus out of Athens. Paid about €32 round trip and three hours later was in Delphi. A nice way to spend a day boning up on your knowledge of ancient civilizations. Well worth the time. You also get the scenic bus ride out of Athens--plenty of farms rolling hills and you cross a spectacular mountain pass before... More
