Temple of Apollo, Delphi
(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Walk among the World Heritage-listed remains of Temple of Apollo, a Doric temple dedicated to the great Greek god of music, sun, and poetry. First built around the 7th century BCE, the temple was subsequently destroyed and reconstructed multiple times. Some ruins of the once-great, six-columned, fifteen-sided temple still stand and have been partially restored. Enjoy panoramic views of Mount Parnassus from here. Be sure to wear comfortable footwear; it's quite a walk to reach the temple, which is part of a greater cluster of archeological sites. By using our Delphi vacation trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Temple of Apollo and other attractions in Delphi.

  • The polygonal wall blows my mind. Make sure you do the sore before the museum, it's gives much better context
  • Magnificent temple in a wonderful lanscape. There is so much history concentrated at this place.
  • Take the walk up to the stadium. Worth the extra 30 minute round trip.
  • Delphi Ruins is nice place, especially Temple of Apollo
  • Beautiful and reasonably well preserved. The accompanying museum is good too.
