Ancient Greeks revered Delphi as the center of their universe, building an impressive sanctuary to Apollo in order to mark this sacred spot.
Delphi has been added to your itinerary. On the 11th (Sat), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hosios Loukas, get engrossed in the history at Delphi Archaeological Museum, and then steep yourself in history at Delphi. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: learn about all things military at Maritime Museum & Archaeological Collection of Galaxidi, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Parnassus, and then delve into the distant past at Temple of Apollo.

To see where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Delphi custom trip planner.

Athens to Delphi is an approximately 2.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or do a combination of train and taxi. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Athens in November since evenings lows in Delphi dip to 47°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Mon) to allow time to drive to Athens.
