Overview
Explore one of ancient Greece’s most mesmerizing archaeological sites, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Delphi, on this 10-hour guided day trip from Athens by coach. See highlights of the place where Ancient Greek prophetesses issued oracles, explore the Archaeological Museum, and pass by the pretty mountain village of Arachova. Tour includes entrance fees: upgrade to add a 3-course restaurant lunch.
Highlights
  • Hassle-free and all-inclusive day trip to Delphi from Athens 
  • Learn about the ruins’ history and functions from a guide 
  • Visit the main UNESCO-listed site and Delphi Archaeological Museum 
  • Convenient and comfy coach travel with Wi-Fi, plus hotel pickup and drop-off 
  • Upgrade option available for included lunch; otherwise, eat on your own 
  • Great for history buffs or those short on time
What to Expect
Board a climate-controlled coach with Wi-Fi at your central Athens hotel and journey to Delphi with a guide pointing out scenery along the way. After a rest stop in Livadia, you’ll arrive at Delphi, where oracle priestesses forecasted the future. See the Castalian Spring, where the priestesses bathed, and get a guided tour. View the Kings of Argos Monument, Treasury, and Temple of Apollo as your guide explains their history, and visit Delphi Archaeological Museum to see highlights like the Siphnian Treasury frieze and the Charioteer of Delphi. Savor a 3-course lunch at a local restaurant (if option selected), or choose to explore and grab lunch on your own. Finally, visit Delphi’s much-photographed Athena Pronaia Sanctuary before your tour finishes with a drop-off back at your central Athens hotel.

Guide Konstantinos was very interesting and both the site and museum are excellent. Appreciate the stop to see the Tholos on the way back. Definitely recommend this if you have an extra day in Athens.
