For sheer grandeur of natural beauty combined with ancient ruins, there are few spots to rival UNESCO-listed Delphi. Your guides are waiting just for you so we hope to see you on your way to the Oracle... In antiquity, Delphi was one of the world's most important religious centers. The Sanctuary of Apollo attracted a host of pilgrims who came to consult the Oracle. Even now an aura of mystery surrounds these sites, exposed on a rocky slope. An approximate 40-minute motor coach drive through the region offers a fast overview of the local flora before arriving at Delphi. Your guided visit highlights the ancient Sanctuary of Apollo, where Pythia, the celebrated Oracle dwelt, the Temple of Apollo, the Sacred Way, the amphitheater, the best-preserved stadium of Greece, and the Castalia Spring, where in ancient days the pilgrims had to wash before they were allowed to consult the Oracle. In the Delphi Museum, see such treasures as the Omphalos, which according to legend marked the center of the world, and the magnificent bronze Charioteer, one of the finest pieces surviving from the 5th century BC. A fantastic journey back in time and a huge visual treat await our SeaDream guests.
To appreciate this beautiful sanctuary of Apollo, it is necessary to walk up a gently sloped path known as the “Sacred Way”. Please wear flat and comfortable walking shoes. Sun screen and hats are recommended. Water bottles will be available at the gangway, please make sure you carry a bottle with you.
