The Delphi site, along with the Acropolis, are considered the most important archaeological sites of Greece. The ancient Greeks had chosen the unique spot of Delphi for their most sacred and famous Oracle, dedicated to God Apollo, which influenced the ancient Greeks’ decisions for more than 1000 years. It was the most important religious centre of Ancient Greece and believed to be the centre of the world.
Within the archaeological site, we will visit the temple of Apollo, where Pythia gave her omens, the temple of Athena Pronea, the ancient stadium and theatre as well as the museum which hosts unique ancient treasures like the famous bronze Charioteer, the Sphinx of Naxos, the statue of Antinoos and many others.
After leaving Delphi, we will make a short stop in Arachova, the most reknown winter resort in Greece, which is also famous for its cheese and hand woven carpets. We will also pass by the village of Cheronia, where the statue of the “lion of Cheronia” stands, dedicated to the victory of King Phillip (father of Alexander the Great) against the Theban armies.
Our last stop will be at a local winery, in order to learn the secrets of wine and the procedure of producing it. There, we will also enjoy a unique wine tasting experience, held by a professional sommelier.
