Delphi private day tour
No holiday in mainland Greece is complete without a trip to Delphi.
Follow our local expert archaeologist guide and immerse yourself in 3,000 years of history, cultural heritage and traditions. Combine your awe-inspiring visit with a guided tour of the Archaeological Museum of Delphi, one of the most significant museums in Greece. Delphi enjoys a stunning location on the sacred slopes of Mount Parnassus overlooking the Pleastos Valley. This ancient archaeological site is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, recognized for its unique place in Ancient Greek mythology, culture and Hellenic unity.
Home of the Muses, the Sanctuary of Apollo was where people consulted the Oracle of Delphi for wisdom before any major decisions were made. Stand in awe of the ruined Temple of Athena with its 4th century BC Doric columns – all that remained after an earthquake in 375BC. Admire the ancient Theatre nearby, carved out of the hillside to give spectators the best views of the sanctuary and valley far below. It’s breathtaking. This fascinating site in Delphi also includes the Treasury, Castalian Spring and the stadium where the Pythian Games were held every four years to commemorate Apollo’s victory over the serpent Pytho. The private tour concludes in the timeless village of Arachova. Stroll through cobbled streets admiring the Byzantine architecture and pause to photograph the breathtaking mountain views. This laid-back tour of Delphi includes lunch at an authentic taverna enjoying traditional cuisine, in true Greek style.
