Travel 6.000 years back in time and explore the sanctuary of Delphi with its numerous amazing buildings, set within a most spectacular landscape, which, for many centuries, was the cultural and religious center and a symbol of unity for the Hellenic world. The history of Delphi begins in prehistory, followed by the Oracle and the myths of the ancient Greeks, arriving to our days.

Departing from Athens and after a short stop in Aráchova, a mountainous little village nestling picturesquely at the foot of Mt. Parnassós and the most cosmopolitan winter destination in Greece, we will reach Delphi, the center of the ancient Greek world. Home to the Delphic oracle, considered the most trustworthy of all, this UNESCO World Heritage site is certain to take you back in time with its magical atmosphere and mysticism.

After a short stop in a nearby place of ancient Greek art and handicraft (optional), we will head towards the beautiful river town of Livadiá, traditionally associated with the production and processing of cotton and tobacco, as well as the cultivation of cereal crops and the raising of livestock. Famous all over Greece for its waterfalls and meat restaurants, walking around in this little town before heading back to Athens will surely be the ideal conclusion to our wonderful experience.

Do not miss the chance to experience the feelings that only the place where the famous Oracle, the most influential feminine voice in the ancient world, lived and prophesied.
