Delphi & Arachova

Tours in Delphi

At the foot of Mount Parnassos, lies the Pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi, which was the most famous oracle of ancient Greece. Delphi was regarded as the centre of the world. According to mythology, it is here that the two eagles sent out by Zeus to find the navel of the world met. Delphi was for many centuries the cultural and religious centre of the Hellenic world and seat of the Pythian Games, the second most important games in Greece after the Olympics, which were held every four years.
In this tour we will visit all the sights in Delphi. You will pass by Castalia Spring, visit the archaeological site and see the Theatre, the Athenian Treasury, the Temple of Apollo famous for its oracle, the Navel of the Earth and the Museum of Delphi, with its spectacular finds, including the Naxian Sphinx, the unique bronze Charioteer and the Statue of Antinoos. Delphi is the one of the most important archeological sites in Greece and an Unesco’s world heritage monument.

Tours in Arachova

Arachova is a picturesque mountain village built on the south slopes of Parnassus, well known for its hand-woven carpets, rugs and quilts, as well as for its wine and cheese.
Arachova is a traditional village close to Delphi, mostly known as a winter destination. It gets very popular due to the Ski Centre of Parnassos that is found in close distance from the town. It is also a town with rich historical background and beautiful nature surrounding it. Not only the town itself has nice architecture, but the surrounding region is also nice for sightseeing. The most intriguing feature of Arachova is its stunning natural beauty, something that has made it one of the most popular resorts for Athenians to escape during the winter.
