ATHENS - THEBES - LEVADIA (short stop) - ARACHOVA - DELPHI
Starting from 07.30am the bus picks up clients
from the hotels, brings them to the terminal in the centre of Athens,
and departs from the terminal at 08.45am. Driving Northwards, and passing by the cities
of THEBES, LEVADIA(short stop), and the village of Arachova, the group arrives
in DELPHI, at +/- 11.30 am.
Follow the tour guide into the ancient
site. Walk on the "sacred path", flanked by the remains of the Treasury houses.
The monuments were erected by the city-states to safeguard the gifts and
valuable votives. The "oracle" of Delphi was renowned for its
prophetic contributions, and even kings sought its verdict on matters of importance.
The tour continues with the Archaeological Museum of Delphi.
The collection of the museum boasts many artefacts dating back to 550 B.C., reminding to the visitor of the
mythical past of ancient Greece. You will see two excellent examples of Archaic statuary,
Kleobis and Viton - the two kouros statues, the Naxian Sphinx, the Statue of handsome Antinoos,
as well as the famous bronze statue of "The Charioteer".
At about 13.45, the group proceeds to a nearby restaurant. After a tasty lunch, the return to Athens starts with a short stop at the nearby mountain village of ARACHOVA.
The village is well known for its attractive hand-woven carpets, rugs and quilts, as well as for its wine and cheese.
Arrival in Athens +/- 19.00, and end of an enjoyable day trip.
