General

Located 110 miles north from Athens, on the South shoulder of the mountain Parnassos, Delphi was believed to be the center of the earth and was the most important religious center of ancient Greece.  Indeed, it was and still is one of the most beautiful and mystical sites in the world.

We will trace back the glory Ancient years of Greece, by visiting Delphi (center of the world). It is now an extensive archaeological site with a modern town nearby. It is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in having had a phenomenal influence in the Ancient world, as evidenced by the rich monuments built there by the most important ancient Greek persons. Moreover, Zeus marked the place as the center of the world and last but not least Delphi is a well-known place due to the games, taking place there.

Later on, we will stop for lunch and heading back towards Athens we’ll have stop to see the ruins of the Temple of Athena Pronea and the Tholos.

Last but not least, we will drive through a ski center resort village Arachova, where we will stop for amazing photos. We will continue our drive for another 30 minutes to the monastery of St. Lukas which is the largest surviving monastery of the Middle Byzantine period in Greece.  It was founded in the early 10th century by the hermit St. Lukas whose relics are still kept in the monastery to this day.

    The tour was great had a great time with my wife and two children the old town of Delphi and Arachova were amazing also had a great time in the monument amazing to see the Oracle temple up close. The drive there a bit hard through the mountains but the view magical. We had plenty of time for lunch and photos and soulvenir shopping. Our driver Antonis was the best native English speaker very professional and friendly help out with everything. One the best days me and family had. STEVE BURGERS.
