Delphi Walking Tour
Are you curious to find out the story of the Oracle of Delphi? Discover the most magical location in Greece on our Delphi Walking Tour with an Evolved Guide certified local guide. The ancient Greeks considered it the omfalos, the navel of the world. Here history, archeology and magic meet. Delphi was the most famous place in the world to consult the gods: the Oracle resided at the Temple of Apollo, god of the sun, music and the arts. Pythia, the priestess of Apollo, reported the words spoken by God: people from every city in the known world came to Delphi and went here to learn about their future.
In ancient times the area had a multitude of structures, many of which have disappeared: thanks to your local guide you will be able to understand which monuments were in this extraordinary place. Delphi was undoubtedly a very rich city: each polis built a monument in Delphi to thank the Oracle after a military victory. In addition, the great treasure of Anfizione, a league of major cities, including Athens, was kept here.
During the guided tour you will travel the sacred road and climb up to the sanctuary as the ancient priests did during the processions.
After the walk in the archaeological site you can make an interesting walking tour of the Archaeological Museum of Delphi, where you can admire some of the most famous art masterpiece such as, for example, the bronze statue of the Auriga (made between 478 and 470 BC ), one of the very few bronze statues that have come down to us.
