During this full guided tour you will visit one of the most important ancient sites of Greece, which is also a World Cultural Heritage Site of UNESCO; known as the “navel of the world” during antiquity as it was considered to be located in the center of the world. The famous oracle of Apollo was there, where its priestess; Pytheia, in a trance-like state was spoken the prophecies of the god of light and where Greeks and foreigners were arriving seeking the will of gods and their destiny. You will also visit the monastery of Osios Loukas; also a World Cultural Heritage Site, with its splendid mosaics.

ITINERARY

Early in the morning you leave Athens. You travel westwards and slightly to the north and through the plain of Thebe; on the spot of the legendary ancient town. Before leaving the region of Boeotia, you will have the opportunity to visit the Byzantine Monastery of Osios Loukas, with its magnificent golden mosaics. You continue further and you reach Delphi, where you will get guided in this unique place. Via the Sacred Way, passing by the treasures of different city-states, you ascent to Apollo’s temple, the theatre and the stadium, where the Pythian Games took place.
