  • It is among the finest educational tours I have done. The tour both in the archaeological site and the Museum is top for young and old.

  • This museum is full of the parts found on the archaeological site of Delphi. It is necessary to visit the Museum before venturing on the archaeological site in order to have a good understanding of places.

  • Over 65s get a reduced rate! Amasing to think of the workmanship done all those years ago. Today what is built is short lived.  more »

  • 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!
  • Great place, it has all the objects found in the excavation of the place, it's a must
  • Probably the most fascinating ancient city after Pompei. Totally worth the visit. A guide would very much suggested though.
  • Very good museum with very well preserved Greek ancient things with proper documentation

Where to stay in Delphi

Despite its popularity with tourists, Delphi offers plenty of affordable hotel lodgings even at peak season, though you must book early if you want a room with a view of the Gulf of Corinth. Travelers looking for budget-friendly options can try one of the area's inns, where friendly service and easy access to good shops and restaurants compensate for a lack of modern amenities. Alternatively, visit Delphi's ancient sites from one of the boutique hotels clinging to the slopes of nearby Mount Parnassus.
