Take a leisurely drive through the plains of Beotia, north of the eastern part of the Gulf of Corinth, passing through the mountainous towns of Thebes, Levadia and Arachova, renowned for its peculiar architecture and cobbled uphill streets. (Short stop on return).
Arriving at Delphi, an entrancing archaeological site and modern town, which according to Greek mythology, was once regarded by Zeus as the center of the world, you will explore some of the most prominent sites, including the ancient ruins of the Temple of Apollo, on the southern slopes of Parnassos mountain, and the Archaeological Museum of Delphi, site of the most famous ancient Greek oracle and home to one of the finest examples of ancient bronze statues, the Charioteer of Delphi and the sculpture of Agias, an Ancient Greek Athlete.
During the tour, there will be a break for lunch in Delphi, before returning to Athens by the same route to make a short stop at Arachova.
It is highly recommended to wear shoes with rubber soles when visiting Delphi.
