Delphi is a famous historic site which housed Ancient Greece’s most famous oracle, Apollo. It was considered by the ancient Greeks to be the centre or naval of the world. The Pan-Hellenic sanctuary is situated at the foot of Mount Parnassus and is approximately 6 miles (10 km) from the Gulf of Corinth. Delphi is now a major archaeological site with well-preserved ruins. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987.
According to Greek mythology, it is here that the two eagles sent out by Zeus from the ends of the universe to find the navel of the world met. The sanctuary of Delphi, set within a most spectacular landscape, was for many centuries the cultural and religious centre and symbol of unity for the Hellenic world.
No trip to the Greek capital should be without a visit to the Acropolis. The ancient citadel is one of the most important ancient sites in the Western world and contains several buildings of significant architectural importance. The most famous building is the Parthenon which was dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena. The stunning monuments stand tall over Athens and can be seen from practically anywhere in the city. Beautifully illuminated at night and capturing the shimmering rays of the sunset, the Acropolis symbolises the pinnacle of Classical Greece.
The Acropolis was first inhabited in Neolithic times (4000–3000 BC) with the earliest monumental buildings constructed during the Mycenaean era. The site was inhabited until the late 6th century BC. Listed as a World Heritage-listed since 1987 it has attracted crowds of tourists all year round thus it is recommended to visit very early morning or last thing at night.
