Full description
You’ll leave Athens in the morning for the drive to Delphi. This is the place, according to myth, that Zeus marked with a huge rock as the omphalos, or center of the universe.

Your first stop will be at the sacred Castalia spring, where you can take a drink of the water. Then you’ll see the Temple of Apollo and the buildings where each of the city states offered treasures to the Oracle of Delphi. You’ll also visit the theatre, the stadium, and the gymnasium.

The Delphi Archaeological Museum houses the famous bronze statue of a charioteer, the large Sphinx of Naxos atop an ionic column, and the two giant kouroi.

There will be a break for lunch, after which you’ll have a chance to stop at the picturesque village of Arahova, which is famous for its carpets, rugs, and quilts. You’ll have time for shopping before returning to Athens.
