We drive along the National highway northwest of Athens and we will arrive at the Monastery of Hosios Loukas, one of the finest Byzantine monuments in Greece, built in the 10th century. The Monastery was founded in 945 AD by the hermit Hosios. The Catholicon at the Monastery keeps the relics of Hosios Loukas. The marvellous mosaics and the architecture make the Monastery one of the most important monuments in Greece.

Departing from the Monastery, we arrive at Delphi via Arachova, a picturesque town situated on the south slopes of Mount Parnassus. Arachova has become a popular day or weekend road trip for Athenians mostly during the winter because of the ski centre.

At Delphi, we visit Castalia spring, the ancient Sanctuary of Apollo, the Treasury of the Athenians, the ancient Stadium, the ancient Theatre, the unique bronze Charioteer, and the Museum. In Greek mythology, it was the navel of the earth, the site of the Delphic Oracle.

We conclude our visit to Delphi by having lunch at a local restaurant enjoying the view of the Itea Gulf followed by a visit to the Temple of Athena Pronea and the Gymnasium.

Finally, we drive back to Athens.

The duration of the tour is about 8-9 hours.

Optional licensed quide for single site ( 2 hours ) 100€ or for day ( 9-10 hours ) 220€.
