Once believed to be the Centre of the world and the site at which Apollo spoke through his oracle, Delphi is one of Greece's most important archaeological sites. Pilgrims from all over the then-known world would visit the Oracle to receive counsel, in the form of prophecies, for matters ranging from the everyday, mundane issues faced by the peasant to essential issues of state, life, or death. Its prominence and power rose steadily throughout antiquity, so much so that it also became the base of a political and military alliance, apart from a religious sanctuary.
Enjoy a 2-hour tour of storytelling with your private guide, who will explain everything about the oracle's functions and the role it held during ancient times while browsing the extensive site and admiring, among others the Temple of Apollo, The Athenians treasure, and the ancient theatre.
