Begin your exploration of the Greek mainland with a trip to Delphi. Situated on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, this was one of the most important destinations in ancient Greece and today enjoys protected status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
For centuries, Mount Parnassus was revered as a sacred mountain: Held by many to be the home of the Muses, it was associated with the god Apollo and was where the Oracle of Delphi spoke her widely influential prophecies. Today, a significant area of the mountain is a designated National Park, home to an impressive range of flora and fauna, and visitors travel from around the country—and the world—to admire its stunning natural beauty and the cultural heritage that lives on in the architecture, art, and traditions of the surrounding area.
From antiquity to modernity, from the archeological area and museum in Delphi to the picturesque traditional village of Arachova, through lush nature and spectacular views across the mountain range, DGC’s Delphi tours offer you a chance to delve deeper into the fascinating world of Greek culture.
