Delphi Archaeological Site was considered to be the Center of the World in Ancient Greece. Moreover, it is one of the most important archeological digging sites in Europe. There you can admire one of the most famous monuments “the Temple of Apollo”.
While there, try to spot the well known ancient engravings on the stone such as ‘Know Thyself’ and ‘Nothing in Excess’, used in the Socrates philosophy works!
Your awarded archaeologist guide will help you understand the secrets and myths of this sacred site.
After so much history, you will have time to stroll around the historic village of Arachova. The undoubted mistress of Parnassus is built in an amphitheatric way and it spreads magnificently to the southern hillsides of Parnassus, at an altitude of 960 meters, ending up at a cliff where Pleistos river flows.
Arachova is full of life. The wild beauty combined with the unaltered traditional character, its cosmopolitan face and the numerous activities the majestic Parnassus offers, place it rightfully at the top of the Greek tourism list with the top destinations.
At Arachova’s taverns and restaurants, you can taste local meats such as the famous mutton kontosouvli and kokoretsi, traditional homemade pies, traditional tidbits and sarmas (cabbage rolls) from the ovine and caprine animals of Parnassus, homemade taglierini and trahanas.
And of course, you will find everywhere the famous cheese from Arachova, Arachova’s formaela, in various forms. Formaela has been registered in the European Union as a protected designation of origin.
Accompany your meal with the popular brousko wine from Arachova and complete your meal by enjoying local Greek yogurt with honey or traditional desserts from Arachova and spoon sweets.
In the afternoon after lunch depart through Central Greece and the cities of Lamia (short stop), Trikala crossing the Thessalian plain, to Kalambaka which is a small town built at the foot of the majestic grey rocks, and crowded by the Meteora Monasteries.
The Wild Beauty combined with the Unaltered Traditional Character.
