Be prepared to hike up hill. It took us about 30 minutes with photo stops to hike up to the top. Very nice view on the way up. If you visit during the summer, it can be very very hot. Wear a cap, sunglass and sunblock if you don't want to get burnt. Wear comfortable hiking shoes as the ground... More

We got there at eight in the morning which was excellent as we managed to avoid the crowds till we were about halfway on the way down. And if we had started two hours later it would have been too hot to get to the top of the site. (The views are great all the way of course but from... More

A place to visit if you are at Delphi. It will be better to have tour guide or if not you got to do a lot of studying / research before coming here.

Delphi is the most sacred place in Greece. The temple of Athena Pronaia is a very special place to meditate and so is the walk up to the Sanctuary of Apollo.

Not too far of a drive from Athens. The place is magical in a great setting. The ruins were nice, but nothing spectacular. The main focus is the setting and what went on. The footsteps that were left behind. I definitely recommend going earlier as a big tour came in 5 min after we arrived and changed the ambiance quite... More

I couldn't get over the fact that you were over 1000 ft from the sea in these incredibly beautiful mountains, then there are all these ruins amongst them. Though there are many steps, it can be accomplished by most unless in a wheelchair, though crutches or walkers would be difficult. Truly amazing to see all the pillars, columns and Large... More

This is one of the most magic places I've ever visited! Delphi is a two-hour drive by car from Athens. It is a comfortable day trip from the capital, so if you're visiting Athens, don't miss this out. This was one of the holiest places in the ancient world and everybody who was anybody in the ancient world has been... More

Easy bus ride from Athens (allow 3 hours each way). All of the sites in Delphi can be seen in a few hours. Go early to beat the crowds, and don't forget to hike down to the temple of Athena. Return tickets can be purchased at the restaurant in town. Buses depart frequently during peak season.
