The Superb Site of Delphi

The Superb Site of Delphi

Board your deluxe air conditioned motor coach at Galaxidi port and after a 1.5 hours drive, you will reach the imposing site of Delphi. Situated on the slopes of Mt. Parnassus at a height of 700 meters, one can realize why Delphi was once believed to be the "Center of the Earth". Beginning your guided tour from the Sanctuary of Apollo, you'll follow the paved sacred way to reach the Doric Temple of Apollo. In its Adyton, the High Priestess "Pythia" sat on a tripod and delivered the oracles. The Theatre and the Stadium were used for the main events of the Pythian Festival. To the right of the entrance to the Sanctuary is the Kastalian Fountain, where Pythia bathed before speaking her prophecies. Across and below the road from the spring is the Marmaria or Sanctuary of Athena, with the conspicuous building of Tholos. Your visit continues to the Museum containing a rare and exquisite collection of archaic sculpture including the world famous Charioteer. After visiting the site and the museum you will return to Galaxidi pier.

Notes: To appreciate this beautiful sanctuary of Apollo, it is necessary to walk uphill a gently sloped path known as the “Sacred Way”. Please wear flat and comfortable walking shoes and perhaps a hat for extra sun protection. Water bottles will be available at the gangway, please make sure you carry a bottle with you. A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity. Final departures times will be published onboard.
