Enjoy a short but very comprehensive tour in the "Navel of the World". Our guided tour apart from a visit to the archaeological site includes a wonderful hike in the ancient footpath in the fir forested foothills of Mt.Parnasus plus a visit with dinner in the village of Arachova famous for its traditional textiles. 

Day 1: Depart from Athens in the afternoon 

Your guide will meet you at your hotel in Athens in the afternoon and you will drive to your hotel in Delphi. Once you settle you will drive  to the traditional village of Arachova for a walk and dinner. Arahova's women continue the tradition of the famous Arahovian handmade textiles, using looms and natural dyes. Women who follow the traditional ways of preparation make savories which are based on local recipes such as marmalades, sweets, drinks, chilopitas, trahana and many others. Arahova is also a great place to shop for the locally produced brightly colored shoulder bags and rugs. (Dinner in guided option only)

Day 2: Hike Ancient Footpath and Visit Archaeological Site

After breakfast we will drive at the beginning of our hike at Livadi plateau at an altitude of 1200m dropping down from the slopes of Mt Parnassos to the village of Delphi. It is the ancient footpath that took Pans worshippers up from the ancient temples of Delphi to the Corycean Grotto to celebrate rites, and it is part of the E4 european trail. Following the ancient path in a forested route we descend to Delphi sanctuary overlooking the olive trees valley and the Corinthian Gulf, whilst the mountains of the Peloponnese complete our picturesque scenery. En route we will stop at the cave of Panas and have our picnic in a traditional sheep barn. We will then meet our professional guide who will tour with us in the archaeological site and museum, a world heritage monument according to UNESCO. Amongst others we visit the Treasury of the Athenians, the Temple of Apollo and the museum which contains masterpieces such as the Bronze Charioteer and the image of the famous athlete Aghias. After our visit we will drive back to Athens or continue to another destination. (Breakfast and Lunch)
