One Day Delphi


At the foot of Mount Parnassus lies the Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi, which harbored: the famous oracle of ancient Greece, the grand Temple of Apollo, a theater able to seat 5000 spectators, a stadium, treasuries, and much, much more.
Delphi was also believed by the Ancients to be the center of the world. According to mythology Zeus had sent out two eagles to find the naval of the earth and where they met was Delphi. It was also here that the Pythia, a sorceress of the sorts, was giving out famous oracles, or predictions.
The sanctuary of Delphi is a spectacular place where for many centuries was regarded as a cultural and religious epicenter. Delphi was also home to the Pythian Games which were held every four years like the Olympics and considered just as important. However, the Pythian Games were set apart from the other Pan-Hellenic games because they hosted musical competitions as well as sporting events.
If you want to see more we’ll follow our guide to the Museum to get a glimpse of the many treasures Delphi has yielded from past excavations. Gold headdresses, marble sculptures, and bronze weapons are among the many precious artifacts on display, but be sure not to miss one of the best known bronze statues in Greece, the Charioteer (Iniahos). This classical bronze cast is one of the finest examples of the “Severe” style.
Leaving Delphi we’ll take time out for Lunch and to do some serious exploring in the traditional Greek Village of Arachova, a place known for its furs and carpet weaving.
