Delphi site and museum were closed due to a national one day strike at all museums. So disappointed! Locals encouraged us to stay an extra day to see it - so glad we did. This gorgeous mountain sanctuary equals or betters any site in Greece, including the Acropolis. Went early in the morning and we were the only ones there.... More

The whole site is very beautiful and the surrounding mountains very picturesque. We came here on a tour we booked through Viator (tour done by CHAT tours), it was a 2 day tour to Delphi and Meteora that departs from Athens. The site is great with lots to see. If you hike all the way to the top you can... More

We drove for 3 hours in a small bus to see the sites at Delphi and we were not disappointed. It was good to have the services of a guide who talked us through the history and the various monuments. We are taking some great photos home from this place.

You'll probably run into lots of tour guides. If you aren't in the best of shape, take your time and enjoy the views. A great intro into the life and times of Ancient Greece.

Apollo was the main God the Oracle was dedicated to, so there is no surprise that the Temple is the highlight of the visit to Delphi. The columns are impressive, the surroundings are magnificent, but do not leave behind all the other rich features of the site. A plus: if you have been to Istanbul, try and find the original...

I enjoyed this site but my bus tour host skipped the Oracle location. The site is fantastic and I Ioved getting photos of the Treasury. There's also an Olympic track behind the museum. The museum highlight is the perfectly sculpted Charioteer. I also went into the tunnels where supposedly the Oracle's were breathing hallucinating gases, but I'm not sure if... More

Study History and you easily will realise the importance of the specific spot. The center of the anient world... No matter what, dispite the "bad" or "wrong", or weak culture policy, its a place you should visit. Special energy, special vibe, special expirience. Totally suggested.
