Amazing place. At the top there is an ancient stadium! Try no to miss Temple of Athena Pronaia which is away from the rest ruins.

wander around in the early morning or at sunset; even better: visit the sanctuary of Athene Pronaia at sunset. the ruined of Delphi are majestic; what a view. Inspiring place. during summer, its will be very hot here and you will need lots of water. in winter, it is wonderful. in summer it will be very crowded (I assume its... More

We really enjoyed walking through the ruins all the way up to the top where there is an ancient stadium. Would recommend going with a guide (reasonable price from Athens) to make sure you learn about all the little aspects of the site. Would also recommend looking at the painting in the museum of what Delphi may have looked like... More

A well-equipped Athenian army blundered into disaster, was annihilated, and left its country almost defenseless against Spartan attacks. The booty was immense; the Syracusans were able to build a splendid treasury in Delphi to store one tenth of the proceeds of this war. Treasuries were built by many of the Greek city states to commemorate victories and to thank the... More

history speaks for the place. For a mortal like me is it possible to add or degrade such a historic monument?

An unforgettable place. Fantastic ruins will take you back in past. You can easily imagine that you are at the time of the Delphic Oracle. And Zeus was not far away. Huge magnificent stadium. The impressive ruins of the Temple of Apollo.

This is the place where the divinations were made in ancient Greece and also at some moments in the Roman Empire, which should be reason enough to make this a must-visit location. This is where the remains of the Temple of Apollo and some of the older Oracle traditions are found - of course, earthquakes and bad human beings did... More

I felt amongst the gods in the beautiful scenery that surrounds Delphi. There is a lot of uphill walking and so it is not suitable for wheelchair or those with difficulties at an incline. We went during December and so we had the site almost to ourselves, even in the freezing temperatures the climb still brought on a sweat. I... More

The ruins are absolutely worth a visit. If going from Athens either plan to stay a night in town or go very early since they close at 3 PM (as many things in Greece do). There is a free tour of the Gymnasium (south of the road) and a fee tour of the Delphi ruins north of the road. Do... More

If and when you are given this opportunity make sure you have enough time to stay and explore the ruins, spend some time to think about the way of living of those people in ancient times and offcurse this is one...
