Central Greece travel guide

4.1
Ruins · History Museums · Beaches
Central Greece became a major travel destination thousands of years ago, known around the ancient world as the home of the famous oracle of Apollo. Today, the small town of Delphi and its eponymous archaeological site top the itinerary of most visitors to Central Greece. Sightseers visit this site by the thousands to admire the mastery of ancient Greek builders, who constructed a vast complex of buildings to mark what they thought of as the center of the universe. The rest of the region remains a less-trodden land of pristine mountains, rivers, forests, ravines, and caves. Central Greece also contains a long coastline and boasts some of the finest beaches in the Mediterranean.
