Description

Departure by coach with your guides for the Delphi site. The site was dedicated to the god Apollo and characterized by the presence of an oracle, the Pythia, a young virgin installed on a tripod seat in an "oracular pit", just over a cleft in the rocks from which the ancient Greeks believed toxic vapors emanated; thus the Pythia went into a trance to receive Apollo's answers to pilgrim's questions and her unintelligible ravings were transmitted by the priests in an ambiguous way.

On the Delphi site, you will have the opportunity to pass through the Sanctuary of Apollo, which will take you via the Sacred Road to the Temple of Apollo, which dates back to the 4th century BC. Before arriving at the temple, you will first pass through the Agora, reworked by the Romans, then past the Athenian Treasury, a Doric building in white marble. You will also see the site of the Theatre and the Stadium, where the Pythic Games took place in honor of Apollo's victory over the Python snake.

You will then return to the coach which will take you to the Monastery of Hossios Loucas, one of the most beautiful Byzantine monasteries in Greece. A UNESCO World Heritage site, this monastery is famous for its 11th century mosaics on a gold background, its frescoes and the refinement of its decoration.
