Mt Parnassus Tours

236 Reviews
Mt Parnassus
Mt. Parnassus is one of the many places in Greece that occupies very real space on the landscape, and is also central to such a number of Greek myths that you might be surprised to learn that the mountain is not a myth of its own. The mountain is in central Greece, just north of Delphi. It is associated with several prominent figures in Greek mythology. Mt. Parnassus was said to be the home of the Muses, sacred to the god Dionysus, sacred also to the god Apollo, home to the winged horse Pegasus, and closely tied with poetry, learning, and music.

Today, Mt. Parnassus is a draw for visitors year-round. In the winter, there are two ski resorts on its slopes. In warmer weather, the mountain is an excellent location for hiking - views from the summit are spectacular.

Practical Info

The drive from Athens to Mt. Parnassus is about three hours. From Delphi, it’s just over an hour. You can easily combine the two in a day trip from Athens, but it’s really only feasible if you rent a car or book a guided tour - relying on public transportation means a one-way trip of roughly five hours.
