Delphi contain the remains of sanctuaries dedicated to the cults of Apollo and Athena, as well as several other structures presumably built for sports. Providing a glimpse into the ancient world's religious beliefs, these ruins joined the list of World Heritage sites in 1987. Tradition says Zeus determined this location as the center of Gaia, the great mother of all in Greek mythology. Apollo's sanctuary, built here in the 4th century BCE, served as the cultural and religious center of ancient Greece for many centuries. The sanctuary famously housed Apollo's oracle, a priestess capable of making prophesies by channeling the god's spirit. Check online for free admission days, and make the best of your visit by joining a guided tour of the ruins.

  • The ride from Athens to Delphi is long, but it's worth the trip. If you're just a little bit more interested in history, the past speaks to one here. The Oracle in Delphi, the Temple of Apollo, a 2500-year-old statue of a chariot is truly five-star sights

  • The energy here is intense. One of the most beautiful sights my eyes have seen. The drive up is stunning and then you walk around the ancient, magical city which is surrounded by mountains everywhere....  more »
  • Wonderful views of the mountains, the ruins themselves are very picturesque. Reserve water (at the entrance there is a drinking fountain), time and forces. And, of course, don't forget your camera.

  • Beautiful town. Beautiful scenery. Beautiful monuments. Not for the unfit. Is well with a visit of you are coming to Athens. Go to the gym first.
  • Probably my favourite historical site on the tour. Incredible history. Make sure you wear sensible shoes and give yourself lots of time to get to the stadium at the top
  • A very nice and historical place. The museum was pretty good. Could get very crowded as this is a very popular place. Could also be very hot, I would recommend to go there on a cooler day.
  • Lovely place, enjoyed every single corner of this sighting place. It’s a bit far away from all places but definitely worth the trip and time.
  • Incredible cultural site. The archaeological site is located in very nice landscape. There are 3 different spots that are still within walking distance of different heritage buildings. There is also a museum for artifacts findings on the site.
