Day Trip to Delphi from Athens All Inclusive (Delphi, Arachova, Osios Loukas)

The history of Delphi begins in prehistory and in the myths of the ancient Greeks. In the beginning the site was sacred to Mother Earth and was guarded by the terrible serpent Python, who was later killed by Apollo.
Our first stop is going to be the monastery of Osios Loukas, which represents the second golden age of Byzantine art (11th-12th Century). We will then drive on to Delphi, the centre of the ancient world – the ‘’Omphalos’’ (Navel of Earth) – whose prestige extended far beyond the boundaries of the Hellenic World. On the slopes of Mount Parnassus, in a landscape of unparalleled beauty and majesty, lie the ruins of the Sanctuary of Apollo, the most famous oracle of the ancient world. We visit the Treasury of the Athenians, the Temple of the Apollo and the Museum containing masterpieces of the ancient Greek sculpture. After your visit to the museum, a stop will be made for a traditional Greek lunch in the village of Delphi, and the village of Arachova.

    Stop At: Monastery of Hosios Loukas, Distomo 32005 Greece

    The Byzantine abundance of the monastery still functioning today was recently brought to light due to a successful restoration project. The monastery was founded around the middle of the 10th century AD by the monk Loukás from Stýri. His relics are exhibited in the Katholicon (main church of the monastery). They were stolen by the Crusaders during the 13th AD and kept in the Vatican for centuries.
