After breakfast at 9:30AM our driver will pick you up from your hotel lobby and head north to reach the town of Delphi and its Archaeological Site, another UNESCO World Heritage Site in Greece.
Learn about ancient Greece, the mysterious Oracle of Delphi, and just why Delphi was called the center of the world! As you may know, it was one of the most important sanctuaries in the ancient World. People from all over the Mediterranean and further would travel there to hear prophecies that would help them make decisions on marriages,
politics, founding new colonies, and declaring war.
The importance of Delphi was so great that the Ancient Greeks called it the Navel of the World – They literally thought it was the centre of the world! There were monuments and temples named after the Greek Gods, pilgrimages, processions, and even athletic games.
Today, Delphi is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. Located in a beautiful and spiritual natural setting, visitors to this day still marvel at this magical wonder. The site of Delphi lies just 8 km from Arachova town. After a short drive we reach this picturesque village.
Free time to enjoy the town and have lunch at the village of Arachova. (Please note lunch is not included on this tour). Nestled on Mount Parnassos, Arachova is a town that has been transformed into a popular destination for those seeking winter sports and relaxation. It sits at an altitude of 973 meters and thanks to its proximity to Athens, the winter months see it buzzing on weekends with city slickers escaping the rat race for a break in the refreshing mountain air.
Follow in their footsteps and find out why this place is so adored.
The village’s lively tavernas, bars and restaurants are home to endless entertainment. But there’s more to Arachova than endless fun on weekends and during the holidays. The rest of the year, when out of the spotlight of visitors, Arachova exudes a cosmopolitan charm. Last year, several new eateries opened, offering even more options to enjoy the local cuisine.
For shopping, several new stores have also opened,
such as the
L’Escalier concept store with design items and jewellery,
2803 Ave Loft for clothing or
Local Bear for handmade leather bags. The shops arranged along the main road and the crisp mountain air make window shopping a refreshing experience.
