During antiquity (6th century B.C.), Delphi was the most significant point of reference for ancient Greeks, known throughout the ancient Greek world and beyond, as the sanctuary of Apollo, god of light and knowledge, and the shrine of his high priestess and seer, Pythia. Both kings and mortals consulted the notorious Pythia, about their future. She would even predict the outcomes of battles and wars. Isn’t it exciting?

Amazing tour! Maria, our guide was excellent. Very knowledgable, she speaks good English and spoke clearly. The information she shared was interesting and she kept us updated on all activities. Great transportation, airconditioned and comfortable. The ruins are very special. After the guided tour you have 20 min to explore on your own. I would not recommend climbing up all the way to the stadium. Take your own lunch and use the time to explore Arachnova.
