What to Expect

By choosing to visit Delphi, you are choosing to visit one of the most sacred sites of ancient Greece. Nestled within the cliff face, Delphi has a special vibe, which visitors to the area are instantly drawn to. Regarded as the navel of the earth by ancient Greeks, we invite you to explore the hidden myths and legends across the extensive archaeological site.

The Theatre of Delphi, The Temple of Apollo, the Athens Treasury and the Delphi Archaeological Museum are few of the highlights you can expect to experience on your trip. Did we mention the famous oracle? By being the seat of  Pythia, the oracle of Delphi was the most renowned one, with people coming to consult Apollo from the fringes of the world. Your trip will be filled with facts about historical events, stunning scenery, statues and artifacts. Delphi is intriguing, astonishing and everything you would expect from an ancient Greek town.

Get the most out of a visit to the area, by also visiting the nearby towns of Galaxidi or Arachova. Galaxidi is a perfect coastal retreat, which may tempt you to dip a toe in its calm waters, whilst Arachova is a labyrinth of pretty streets. Get the chance to admire the neoclassical architecture of Galaxidi and dive into its history and culture or lose yourself in the picturesque streets of mountainous Arachova, the most popular winter-time destination of mainland Greece. Stop for a lunch break and feast at local delicacies, while exploring their folklore tradition.
