Temple of Apollo, Delphi

(650+ reviews on the web)
Ruin
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 feeling is of being in a mystical place, the navel of the world ... it's super exciting, both for those who know and love the mythology, that for all other ...

  • The Temple of Apollo is part of the ruins of Delphi and is located in the same path. Enter inside the entrance which is free for student groups. Also enter at the entrance to the visit to the Museum.

  • For sensitive souls, for those who love nature and art in their every nuance, this site, I'm sure, will continue to summon itself, with its atmosphere, in the years to come: Imagine walking on tiptoe at the remains of the fourth Temple of Apollo built around 330 BC. Let us reflect on the fact that here were erected statues and divination, which offers always on this site was built a theatre that dominated the entire Valley lush with forests and set like a jewel on the slopes of Mount Parnassus and we will read by a pleasant sense of Vertigo. A curiosity: as soon as you arrive near the ruins of the temple, you'll notice on the right a Bronze column in a spiral form, well, the mate is located in Istanbul.

  • 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.
