ITINERARY

Departure from Athens at 08.00 am and transfer to Delphi. We will first enjoy a 3 hour hike on the ancient footpath.

This is a historic and inspiring hike dropping down from the slopes of Mt Parnassos to the village of Delphi. It is the ancient footpath that took Pans worshipers up from the ancient temples of Delphi to the Corycean Grotto to celebrate rites, and it is part of the E4 European trail. Due to time limitations we will do part of the hike – the most beautiful one ending on top of the archaeological site. En route we will enjoy a picnic with Greek local ingredients.

Once we arrive to Delphi, our professional guide will be waiting for us for a tour at the Archaeological site and the museum. Afterwards we will transfer to Arachova village for our early dinner in a Greek tavern. Arachova is a mountain village, on the slope of Parnassos mountain, mainly built of stone houses, narrow streets and springs. Despite its huge tourist growth due to the ski resort, its heritage has been well preserved. The region is famous for its agriculture, cattle breeding and boasts some high quality products like olives and olive oil, tsipouro, formaella & feta cheese, yogurt, opsimotiri cheese, halvah, frumenty and noodles.
