Tour of Delphi, the "Center of the Earth"

Discover the "center of Earth" with this guided tour of Delphi, the mythical oracle of Ancient Greece and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Set against a mountain landscape, you'll explore the most sacred place of the ancient civilization. Walk amongst ruins and learn all about the secrets of the old prophecies.

According to legend, Delphi is the center of Earth, thanks to the two eagles sent by Zeus, father of the Gods, that found it. It also acts as a symbol of unity for the Hellenic world and is home to numerous renowned monuments. You'll visit the Temple of Apollo, the Athenian Treasury, and the preserved Theater. Along the way, your guide will share insight into Delphi's religious and political significance in Ancient Greece.

After roaming through the ruins, you can walk up to the stadium for stunning views of olive groves and the Corinthian Gulf. After strolling the grounds and learning about the Ancient Greeks, enjoy a visit to the Delphi Museum. Here you'll find the bronze statue of Charioteer of Delphi, the haunting Sphinx of Naxos, and what might be the very first ever recorded notation of a melody.
