Ancient Delphi Tour from hotel

What if there were a way you could travel back in time to ancient Greece? Until a time machine is invented, this ancient Delphi day trip is the next best thing. You'll have 10 hours to explore this famous archeological site, home to landmarks such as the Temple of Apollo and the majestic Mount Parnassus.

From Athens, your Delphi tour will pass the two picturesque towns of Livadeia and Arachova before arriving at your destination. At Delphi, your guide will recount the colorful history of this noteworthy site and point out the many landmarks you'll have the chance to examine. Among the more notable sights is the Temple of Apollo. In ancient times, people all over the world came to the shrine to have their futures foretold by the oracle. Most of the temple was destroyed around 390 A.D. when Emperor Theodosius I vowed to remove all traces of paganism in the name of Christianity.

Mount Parnassus is another must-see attraction on this Delphi day trip. Fortunately, it's pretty hard to miss. The massive mountain is a major figure in Greek mythology: it's said to have been the home of the Muses. The Muses are considered the goddesses of inspiration, particularly for the arts and sciences. Mount Parnassus offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding olive gardens and landscapes. Don't hesitate booking this ancient Delphi tour, and experience classical Greece in all its glory.
