We will follow the national road north through the plains of Beotia and pass outside the town of Thebes.As we close in to our destination, the mountain of Parnassos towers over us. The site is at the foot of the mountain; the Pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi, here we start our walk.
Passing by the Castalia Spring we will visit the archaeological site and view the monument of the Argive Kings, the treasury of the Athenians, the Athenian Stoa, the Polygonal Wall, the monument of Platea and the Temple of Apollo. The site is very large and there is a lot to see including the famous oracle where in ancient times people believed they would learn what their future held. Enjoy the views from the site, they are incredible – the setting is so impressive that in ancient times it was considered the navel of the world.
After our walk around the site we will visit the museum. The Delphi museum has spectacular exhibits including the frieze of the Treasury of the Sifnians, the Naxian Sphinx, the Statue of Antinoos the metopes of the Athenian treasury and the famous bronze Charioteer. It is well worth visiting the museum as the exhibits complement what we saw at the site and allow us to get a better understanding of the role Delphi played in antiquity.
After our visit to the Delphi museum we will walk down to the exit where our driver will be waiting for us. A short drive to our next stop which is the village of Arachova. We shall stop at this picturesque village, at an altitude of 950meters, and enjoy our lunch; we will taste regional products and experience original Greek cuisine.
We will not hurry our lunch. We will enjoy it. The pace can be slow and relaxed. A Greek coffee at the end of our meal will conclude this fantastic tour of Delphi.
We can relax while our driver takes us back to Athens and our tour comes to an end at our hotel.
