Get ready to explore the center of the Ancient World on a private full-day tour to Delphi from Athens. Immerse yourself in the myths and monuments of Ancient Greece by visiting the UNESCO-listed archeological site of Delphi with an expert guide.
Begin your private day trip early in the morning with a pick up at your Athens city center hotel. Once you settle inside your air-conditioned minivan, we will depart via the National highway to Central Greece.
After a two hour drive, we will arrive at one of the most famous sights of ancient Greece, the enchanting Delphi, located on the spur of Mount Parnassus, where the respected oracle of Delphi, the counselor of kings and pilgrims from all over the ancient world, took shelter.
Here, we will visit the famous theatre, where you will experience magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding alpine setting, and get an insight into the world of the Ancient Hellenes.
Moreover, we will tour the Temple of Apollo, the so-called navel of the ancient world, best-known for its famous oracle. You’ll desire to take your time, not only because the place is located on the side of a mountain, but also because there’s just so much to see here, and the setting itself is magical.
Afterward, we will visit the picturesque town of Arachova and take a small tour before you have an hour to spend on your own. Optionally, you can have a lunch arranged at one of the finest restaurants in the town. This way, you will have the opportunity to devour the local delicacies from the region, sat in the town square, under a large plane tree, where you’ll enjoy local cheese and the famous Amfissa olives before tucking into a traditional local specialty as the main course.
On our way back to Attica, we will make a brief stop at the statue of the legendary Spartan king Leonidas, known for the historic battle at Thermopylae.
