Tour overview

A specially designed tour for cruise passengers approaching Itea port. An authentic Delphi experience along with a traditional village visit and an ancient olive grove hike! 

We meet at the port of Itea and drive to Delphi ancient sanctuary.  We visit the archaeological site with a professional guide (as time is limited we recommend to skip the museum and focus just on the exterior). Then we drive to Chrisso village, a nicely preserved village with renovated houses a picturesque main square, traditional stone churches and authentic Greek cafes. Located between Arachova and Itea north of the ancient town of Crissa, it offers a magnificent view of the olive groves of Amfissa and the Corinthian Gulf.

There, we enjoy a traditional picnic with local cheeses and an olive oil tasting at the yard of a beautiful chapel.

We hike inside the olive grove up to a point from where we can see ruins of the prehistoric acropolis of Krissa. We continue downhill in a mild route between 3-4 Km’s (1,8-2,4 miles). A support car will follow us on a parallel road during our hike, in case any participant gets tired before our arrival point.

About an hour later we drive back to the port of Itea.
