Delphi Tour (2 Days)

Short trip from Athens

Summary

This two day tour takes in Delphi, a real Greek treasure!

START / FINISH - Athens

Activity code: ATH12

Duration: 2 Days/1 nights

Delphi enjoys the most fabulous location on the slopes of a mountain terrace, dwarfed by Parnassus. In ancient times it was believed to have been the centre of the earth but it became most famous for its oracle. People used to journey there to consult the oracle on matters of love, business affairs or war. A sacrifice would be made, the priestess would chant the prophesies, which were then interpreted by a priest.
