Archaeological Site of Delphi
The pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi, where the oracle of Apollo spoke, was the site of the omphalos, the 'navel of the world'. Blending harmoniously with the superb landscape and charged with sacred meaning, Delphi in the 6th century B.C. was indeed the religious centre and symbol of unity of the ancient Greek world.
We took a two day bus trip to Delphi and it was inexpensive and very worth our time to visit this amazingly famous site of the Temple of Apollo. We went with a tour that featured a fabulous tourguide who was able to give us so much more insight as to how this landmark functioned in its day and how it evolved.
The local museum was incredible and filled with an array of artifacts and artwork that evolved with the advancement of ancient Greek society. There are also some lovely local restaurants that have incredible views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
We were glad to take the two day trip instead of the one day since we were able to see additional ruins. It is only a couple of hours away from Athens.
