Create an itinerary including Temple of Apollo In Delphi
Walk among the World Heritage-listed remains of Temple of Apollo In Delphi, a Doric temple dedicated to the great Greek god of music, sun, and poetry. First built around the 7th century BCE, the temple was subsequently destroyed and reconstructed multiple times. Some ruins of the once-great, six-columned, fifteen-sided temple still stand and have been partially restored. Enjoy panoramic views of Mount Parnassus from here. Be sure to wear comfortable footwear; it's quite a walk to reach the temple, which is part of a greater cluster of archeological sites. Make your Delphi itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • Part of the archeological ruins of Delphi, the temple is a highlight and not to be missed. We were here late afternoon and it was worth it for the fewer crowds.

  • Go with a guide so they can show and tell you about all of the sites in Delphi.
  • Fabulous ruins. You reach the site not far from Delphi and then walk up through it, reaching the stadium at the top finally. It's a steep walk if it's hot, but it's worth going all the way to the stadium if you can. There are trees planted throughout the site which provide little shady spots if the heat is intense
