Archaeological site of Delphi
Explore sanctuaries of Apollo and Athena Pronaia, and ancient stadium and theater.
The oracle had origins in prehistory and it became international in character and also fostered sentiments of Greek nationality, even though the nation of Greece was centuries away from realization.
The ancient Greeks considered the center of the world to be in Delphi, marked by the stone monument known as the omphalos (navel).
Temple of Apollo
The Temple of Apollo, god of music, harmony, light, healing, and oracles occupied the most important and prominent position in the Delphic Panhellenic Sanctuary. The edifice with the partially restored colonnade visible today dates to the 4th century BC; it is the third temple built at the same place. The famous oracle, the Pythia, operated inside the temple, the location chosen, according to one tradition, due to a sacred chasm beneath the site emitting vapors, which were inhaled by the Pythia. Some ancient writers state that the Pythia then entered a state of delirium and uttering inarticulate cries, which were then turned into equivocal oracles by the priests. This interpretation is controversial, and has been challenged by scholars such as Joseph Fontenrose and Lisa Maurizio, who argue that the ancient sources uniformly represent the Pythia speaking intelligibly, and giving prophecies in her own voice.

Awesome day tour to Thermopylae and Delphi! Getting out of Athens and seeing the mountains with a beautiful view along the drive was great. The battlefield at Thermopylae is a good sight for those with knowledge of the battle to overlook, but not much other than the monument and small museum. Worth the detour on the way to Delphi for any fan of 300. Delphi was a great historical site with lots of ruins and artifacts. The lunch and town were fun to see as well. The drive all around Greece was also unbelievable as the countryside is beautiful. Highly recommend!
Review about: Delphi, Thermopylae private full day trip from Athens
It was an amazing day that we will remember! The car was clean and the service was perfect. The driver was pleasant and knowledgeable, he took us to all the historical places in Athens and ancient Corinth and he told us everything we should know about the history that was so interesting. Thanks again for an amazing day!!
Everything was wonderful, Dimitris was a wealth of knowledge, and showed us around the city, while letting us do so at our own pace. Highly recommend!
Review about: Athens highlights half day private tour
This was the most fun I’ve had in a tour ever. For the first time in all my years of traveling, I had the same tour guide in two separate tours. I happened to have THE MAN Notis as my tour guide again. With that being said, we were already very well acquainted from the first tour I had with him earlier that week; so I just asked a couple of questions for my notes and then we spent the rest of the way talking about so many different topics. Highly recommend this tour for solo travelers, couples, or small groups.
Review about: Ancient Olympia private full day trip from Athens
Delphi was magnificent! So much more than we thought it would be. The grounds were magical (as expected) and the museum was outstanding. The artifacts all around were definitely something to behold. Words and pictures cannot do them justice. Just to think how these temples and stadiums were built is mind blowing! We are also very grateful that we had Takis as our guide/driver. He was very friendly, helpful and professional, gave us good information and tips, and took us through all the winding city streets of Arachova. Another gem of a town we thoroughly enjoyed!
Review about: Delphi private full day trip from Athens
A fantastic day seeing Arachova, Delphi and Galaxidi! Notis was great, very friendly, he kept us well hydrated and gave us plenty of time in each location so we never felt rushed. He also brought us to a delicious lunch spot with a great view. We definitely recommend this tour!
Review about: Delphi, Itea, Galaxidi private full day trip from Athens
Our driver and Greek philosopher, Notis, was a pleasure to spend the day with. He is so knowledgeable about all things Greek. We visited three monasteries in the sky — all had incredible views of the cliffs. You don’t have to be religious to appreciate the contemplativeness of this holy place. Thank you, Notis, for creating a memorable experience!
