Meet your Local Historian at the foot of the archaeological site and start a voyage in Greek mythology and ancient Greek history, as you are standing on the grounds of one of the most important religious sites of antiquity. Major political decisions have been taken after Pythia, the priestess, would deliver the, always ambiguous and riddle-like, message from the Gods: the oracle. Depending on understanding correctly or misinterpreting, numerous war victories and equal catastrophes have followed each oracle given in Delphi. Allow your guide to introduce you to all the true facts and all the legends that have been embracing this magnificent, powerful site, while you visit one by one the important monuments; the Treasury of the Athenians, in eminent position; the Theatre, where religion meets politics & social life; the Temple of Apollo, to whom the site was dedicated; further up, the Stadion, one of the best-preserved monuments of its kind. At the lower part the famous Tholos of the Athena Pronaia and the ancient Delphi gym. Towards the end the tour, while you make your way to the outstanding new museum of Delphi, take a moment to look up and contemplate the imposing vertical rocks standing above you. Somewhere there must wander the Olympian Gods. Besides, remember, you’re at the centre of the world.
