9-Hours Delphi - The Navel of the Earth

Delphi

 

Our tour starts with a scenic drive to Delphi via the national road north through the plains of Beotia and passes outside the town of Thebes. As you get closer to Delphi, you will start the ascent to the imposing mountain of Parnassus. The ancient site is at the foot of the mountain; the Pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi.

Passing by the Castalia spring you 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 visiting the site of Delphi the next stop is 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 you saw at the site and will allow you to get a better understanding of the role Delphi played in antiquity.

A short drive to a traditional restaurant, enjoy your lunch and take the opportunity to taste regional products and experience original Greek cuisine.
