Located 170 kilometers northeast of Athens on the enchanting slopes of Mount Parnassus, Delphi in the ancient world was considered the centre of the world. Legend says that Zeus released two eagles, each going the opposite direction, meeting at the spot where ancient Delphi is located.
Delphi’s archaeological site is filled with temples and structures, the most important temple being the Sanctuary of Apollo. It was constructed to honour Apollo for establishing the oracle of Delphi.
The landscape surrounding Delphi is one of the most breathtaking in Greece. Since, the location of Delphi is on the slope of a mountain one can enjoy the view of the whole valley below all the way to the Gulf of Corinth. The modern village of Delphi is a quiet place with traditional buildings, churches, coffee shops, and fabulous taverns. Time for shopping or lunch (optional) in the village of Delphi or in Arachova area before returning to Athens. It worth’s mentioning that the picturesque mountain village of Arachova, built on the south slopes of Parnassus is well known for its attractive hand-woven carpets, rugs and quilts, as well as for its wine and cheese. Arrival back in Athens early in the evening.
