Tour overview

A historic hike in the ancient trail that connected the port of ancient Kirra with the Oracle of Delphi.

We follow a downhill path and a rural road from Delphi to the edge of  Chrisso village, the ancient city of Crissa that hosted the visitors of the oracle.
Following the footsteps of ancient pilgrims, we continue our tour in the heart of the famous Crisaean field olive grove, today mentioned by UNESCO as a unique landscape that is composed of more than 1,5 million olive trees. We will enjoy the unique scenery noticing the silver-green foliage of the olive trees changing colors depending on the time of the day , and admire the naturally carved trunks of hundred-year-old trees. We savor a traditional picnic stop in the shade of an old chapel and discover together the taste of different sorts of olives. We will explain how olives are cultivated and why the olive tree is a word wide symbol of immortality, wisdom and abundance.
