  • Visit the archeological site of Delphi and not visit its Museum is a mistake, since to admire exquisite and monumental parts that there are exposed, one dimensional which meant Delphi in the ancient world.

  • Small museum, but filled with beautiful statues and artistic pieces. This is another tribute to ancient Greece in all her glory.  more »
  • A place that I go again and again and again has something new to offer me. Positive energy of the archaeological site and the everlasting erwtisi of our existence. The siwpiloi rocks and smells of anoixis reminiscent of forgotten rituals more established world he understood well the life cycle from the lost man of today.

  • The museum houses an impressive collection associated with ancient Delphi, including the earliest known notation of a melody, the famous Charioteer, golden treasures discovered beneath the Sacred Way, and fragments of reliefs from the Siphnian Treasury.
  • Great collection on antiques from all periods of delphi, from the pre-greek era until the bizantine empire
  • Great. A world class must see.
  • Wonderful archeological site! Lots of steps and incline climbing but worth it. Very hot - bring water. Enjoy the spectacular views!
  • Probably the most fascinating ancient city after Pompei. Totally worth the visit. A guide would very much suggested though.
