The Tour Description

A day trip to Delphi, which was regarded in antiquity as center of the world, is an excursion you should not miss. We begin our journey in the morning heading to Delphi, located 170km northeast of Athens. Passing through the fertile plain of Boeotia, crossing the towns of Thebes which is connected with the tragedy of king Oedipus - Levadia and Arachova we will arrive at Delphi –the Omphalos (Navel of Earth) whose prestige extended far beyond the boundaries of the Hellenic World. On the slopes of Mount Parnassus, in a landscape of unparalleled beauty and majesty, lies Delphi’s archaeological site filled with monuments and temples, with the ruins of the Sanctuary of Apollo being the most important.

You will also be astonished by Treasury of the Athenians, the Theatre, the Stadium and the Museum with the famous statue of Antinoos and the unique bronze statue of the Charioteer dated from 475 B.C and the famous athlete Aghias. The tour takes you to the modern village of Delphi or Arachova, for a short walk, lunch and shopping.
