Greece General: 654 reviews and 611 photos


Favorite thing: D E L P H I :

The sanctuary of Athena, the ruins of the temple of Apollo, the Gymnasium, the Stadium decorated with small statues - the ancient theatre, a 4th century BC construction, and the Castalia Fountain are just some of the wonders to admire amidst Delphi's majestic atmosphere.
Finally, don't miss the museum, which houses the important finds excavated at the site. Among the most impressive are the famous bronze statue of the Charioteer (5th c. BC), the gold and ivory heads of Apollo and Artemis and the Roman copy of the 'Navel of the World'.

Delphi is also home to the European Cultural Centre, an international organization that sponsors cultural conferences and symposia.
