Some of the monuments you are going to visit:

The temple of Apollo

Located at the end of the Sacred Way, the temple of Apollo was the centre of the god’s cult and the seat of the high priestess, Pythia. The importance of the site dictated the erection of the temple, using money collected from all the Greek city-states, as well as foreign rulers. At the deepest chamber of the temple, the "adyton" was only accessible by Pythia and the priests, when she was delivering the prophecies of Apollo. The existing ruins on the site belong to the latest phase of the building, successors to the older ones made out of stone, copper, beeswax, and feathers or even entirely out of laurel leaves! On its walls, sayings of the Seven Sages were inscribed, such as the well-known phrase 'Know thyself” by Thales of Miletus.

  • Evita as our guide was an excellent guide for families, able to engage with school-aged kids and their parents! Greeking.me made all the difference between enjoying and learning about the sights we visited, versus just looking at things in a rush because the kids were cranky. We will certainly contact greeking.me again if we return to Greece!

  • Our guide was very knowledgeable a extremely friendly. It was very moving to see all the places you read about in ancient literature. After our tour we went to a very nice restaurant with sea view where we recovered from climbing up all the way to see the unique stadion of Delphi. In all a wonderful day which I would recommend to anyone interested in art, history or archaeology or even just beautiful landscapes.

  • The trip to Delphi was the first trip and it didn’t disappoint. Andrew picked us up on time and gave us all the information we needed to have a great day exploring the Temple of Apollo. He was right there at the entrance to the museum when we were ready to go, and took us safely back to our hotel.
