What You Can Expect

Delphi Day Trip from Athens

Delphi, Greece

Ancient Greece is the civilization that existed roughly between the 8th century BC and 600 AD, and Delphi was said to represent the center of it. Reputedly built on the spot where Zeus’ eagles collided when they were released from opposite ends of the earth, the ancient town is littered with intriguing monuments from this fascinating period of history.

After meeting your guide in Athens, hear tales about the ancient Greeks and their lives in Delphi while traveling to the town by air-conditioned coach. Pass through the towns of Levadia and Arachova – both famous for their production of brightly colored carpets – and arrive in Delphi around midday.

First stop is a tour of the Delphi archeological site – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and easily one of the most important digs in Europe. As you walk around the evocative ruins with your guide, see famous monuments like the Temple of Apollo.

Head inside Delphi Archeological Museum and explore this veritable treasure trove at leisure. Home to countless artifacts and intriguing relics, the museum consists of 15 rooms arranged in chronological order from 15th century BC to 4th century AD. Be sure to check out the bronze Charioteer of Delphi and the Sphinx of Naxos.

After eating lunch at a Delphi hotel (own expense), you will return to Athens, stopping in Arachova on the way to stretch your legs or grab a coffee (own expense).

Delphi was stunning. Our tour guide, Strathis, was superb. On the bus trip he gave us a very informative and sometimes amusing history of Ancient Greece in two chapters followed by an account of Greek mythology chapter three. On the tour of Delphi and the museum he explained the site extremely well. Anyone on this tour will be lucky if Strathis is the guide.

This was a great trip the drive was great to see the country side. the history was so interesting.
we didn't book the lunch but decided to have it in the hotel with the group and it was well worth it. It was a very hot day and the walk up the hill we were very hot so make sure you have lots of water.

Scenic drive from Athens to Delphi. Tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. You have a choice to wander the temple yourself or tag along with the guide. Go with the guide, she stopped at certain landmarks and explained in detail the different areas. Towards the end she left you to continue yourself to the amphitheater and stadium wear good walking shoes. Head back down to the museum to see all the statues and relics from time gone by. The option of lunch is a good choice where you can sit and chat with other members of the tour. It is a full day tour but so worth it.
