"The pythoness is extinct!" Top 5 Page for this destination Delphi by JLBG

Delphi Travel Guide: 277 reviews and 954 photos

Delphi is among the most visited sites in Greece. Thus, in the high season, if you want to visit it in good conditions, you have better arrive early. The site opens at 7 :30 and you have better be there at the opening and have finished the visit by 10 :30. Until 10 :00, though you will not have the site for yourself, there will be a reasonable crowd. After 10:00, it is hell!

Alternatively, try to visit at the lowest season such as December or January. Given the elevation, it can freeze and snow. The bad thing is that you might have to wait for the sun…

    Delphi was one of my favourite places in Greece but that was decades ago and in late September - hardly any people around at all. Times change! leyle

    Such an amazing place. Hard to grasp that anything of that age could survive. The work on the columns and the fit of the stones is incredible. Thanks for the tour.

    Although I've visited Delphi and taught mythology in high school for 32 years, I still found your pages informative and interesting. Wonderful photos to accompany your informative narration.

    Really Delphi is worth visiting because of many legends which have grown up here. Though most of them are only myths (unfortunately!) and have nothing common with reality... You know what I mean, ha-ha!
