Drive through the fertile plain of Boeotia, crossing the towns of Thebes, Levadia and Arachova. Arrive at Delphi, the centre of the Ancient World 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 Pythios. Visit the Treasury of the Athenians, the Temple of Apollo and the Museum containing such masterpieces of Ancient Greek sculpture as the Athlete Agias and the famous bronze Charioteer.
The whole morning is free to see more of the grandeur of Delphi and take photos of its beautiful scenery. Return to Athens by the same route.
