Legendary Delphi

After the Acropolis, Delphi is the most popular archaeological site in Greece. With its exquisite setting on a mountain terrace dwarfed by the ominous crags of Mt. Parnassus, Delphi was one of the most important sanctuaries of ancient Greece and held to be the centre of the earth. Walk along the Sacred Way to the Temple of Apollo see the treasuries, the place of offerings, the Grand Temple of Apollo and the theatre with its splendid acoustics.

Then visit the Delphi Museum, which houses many of the treasures recovered from the site, including Opals, which marked the centre of the world and the famous Charioteer, one of the finest pieces surviving from the 5th century B.C. You will enjoy a taste of authentic Greek cuisine at a local restaurant in the exquisite setting of Delphi. The return drive takes you past Thebes, Levadia and the sacred Castilian spring near the sanctuary of Apollo.
