Delphi, a UNESCO world heritage site at a distance of 187 km from Athens, is an ideal choice for a one-day excursion from Athens. According to mythology, the two eagles sent by Zeus from the far end of the universe met to find the center of the world, the navel of the earth. Today, in the impressive archaeological site, we admire, among others, the Temple of Apollo and the treasury of the Siphnians. The history of the famous oracle is housed in the Archaeological Museum, while Arachova, a famous winter resort, is a short walk away.
Drive through the fertile plain of Beotia, crossing the towns of Thebes connected with the tragedy of King Oedipus – Levadia and Arachova (short stop on the way back).
Arrive at Delphi, the center of Ancient World – the “Omphalos” (Navel of Earth) – whose prestige extended far beyond the boundaries of the Hellenic World.
