Visit early in the morning and make sure to visit the stadium. The walk up the site is a nice climb.

“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Delphi is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The ruins are incredible - you will need to be in somewhat decent shape to hike all around and up into the hills, but it is worthwhile to make the trek up to the stadium. The drive up the mountain is beautiful too - Arachova is a great little town on the way. If I ever go back, I will definitely get a guide so I can understand the history a little more.

“It's Old!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

The Temple of Apollo in the Delphi ruins is wonderful. I would suggest going on a guided tour of the ruins, as the guide will have all the history and stories to share.

“Get there early and you can still feel the gods”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Show up when the gates open and before the tour buses start arriving and if there's a mist on the hillside, cloaking the sound and sight of other early visitors, you can imagine Apollo might be lingering still.
