Like ancient travelers we come first to the sanctuary of Athena Pronaia in an olive grove below the road, where we see one of the most photographed monuments of Delphi, the famous Tholos, then to Castalia Spring and finally to the sacred site of Apollo.
Delphi was the perfect location for the sanctuary of the god of light, music and prophecies.
The oracle of Apollo attracted people from all over the Greek world and accumulated a vast wealth over the centuries. Walking along the sacred way you will see the Treasury of the Athenians, the temple and oracle of Apollo, the theatre, the stadium and the most breathtaking view that an ancient sanctuary could offer.
The visit of the local museum will complete your journey in time and will convince you that indeed for the ancient Greeks Delphi was the center of the world, the earth’s navel.
After the exciting visit of the site and the museum you can enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before going back to Athens.
