DELPHI

Delphi has been considered the “Navel of the World” ever since antiquity and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located on the southwestern slope of Mount Parnassos, the city of Delphi boasts an impressive and long-lasting history. This is where the Oracle offered a glimpse to the future for the Greeks and for literally everyone in the Classical world of the past. The high priestess of the Oracle, Pythia, provided advice to prominent personalities such as Kings and Warlords. Their meaning was often ambiguous, leaving the interpretation to the very same people who had come to Delphi for consult.

Among the most famous attractions in Delphi, travelers will have the opportunity to admire the Temple of Apollo and the Theater, Tholos and Hippodrome, the Castalian Spring and a lot more on site.

The city of Delphi is the continuation of the historical residential Oracle at Delphi and the village Kastri was constructed on the ruins of the oracle. It was moved to its present location in 1893, with the start of archaeological excavations in the wider region. The city is found in an altitude of 550 meters, referred to as a global cultural hub and a center for nature tourism and sports. An amazing network of both ancient and modern trails has been developed in the area, providing the ultimate destination for hiking activities.

Besides the archaeological site and the museum, there is the European Cultural Center and in the nearby region there is a series of monasteries of great religious interest. Also, Delphi is within walking distance of 10 km from Arachova, a major winter destination in the Greek mainland and Galaxidi.

Thanks to its magnificent views, the city has been described as a place of authentic positive energy. The wonderful climate and the excellent connection to all major cities in Greece make it a true gem to be treasured!
