Pick-up from your hotel or cruise ship and begin our departure from Athens heading North for our first visit to the village of Arachova. Time given for souvenir shopping along the picturesque main street and stops for photos of the panoramic views over the Olive Groves. Leaving Arachova we continue to the site of Delphi, home to the Delphi Oracle who influenced and advised in ancient times on all levels of political or private affairs. At the site of Delphi you can see the Temple of Apollo, the ancient stadium, the gymnasium and of course the Tholos at the sanctuary of Athena Pronaia.
