TWO DAY DELPHI TOUR

2 Days

This tour gives you the opportunity to explore the antiquities and beauties of Delphi Tour leisurely, with an overnight stay in the picturesque town of Delphi.

Itinerary

Day 1

We depart from Athens in the morning via the national highway passing by the towns of ThebesLevadia (where we’ll have a coffee brake at the springs of “Forgetfullnes and Remembrance”) and Arachova.

When we’ll arrive in Delphi we’ll see the Castalia Spring and visit the main archaeological site (the Temple of Apollo, the Treasury of the Athenians, the Theatre, the Stadium,etc.) and the Museum with the famous statue of Antinoos and the unique bronze statue of the Charioteer dated from 475 B.C. 

After concluding our visit we’ll go to the hotel and the afternoon will be free to explore the picturesque town of Delphi.

Day 2

After breakfast we leave the town to visit the smaller archaeological site so as to see the ruins of the Temple of Athena Pronea and the Tholos.

The famous monastery of “Ossios Loukas” is next in our itinerary. Ossios Loukas is the largest surviving monastery from the Middle Byzantine period in Greece.  It was founded in the early 10th century by the hermit St. Loukas whose relics are kept in the monastery to this day. The Katholikon has some of the best preserved Byzantine mosaics.

The spectacular mountain view from the monastery’s courtyard and the welcoming shade of the old pine trees make this an ideal place to enjoy a cup of Greek coffee and local sweets.

We continue our trip driving down the mountain Parnassos, and before getting the national highway to Athens we’ll stop again at Cheronia to see the famous “Lion of Cheronia”.  The “Lion” is a marble monument erected in the battlefield by Phillip, King of Macedonia and father of Alexander the Great, to commemorate his victory there against the Athenian and Thebean armies in 338 B.C.

In the afternoon we will arrive in Athens.
