Amazingly interesting story about the bees from Giannis and Nikiforos. Thank you guys for your time and sharing your knowledge. It is especially valuable that you certainly have a lot of work to do. And nonetheless you find the time for visitors like us who don't know anything about the bees, and honey, and propolis and... Great experience on the way from Delphi ruins!

Delphi Ruins

Reviewed By James L - Kansas City, Missouri

We took the long tour to Delphi and it was certainly worth it. What a magical place! I've read from others about hiking to the stadium and I would agree that it's worth the hike for the views. We had to break off from our tour to give us enough time to do that and I'm so glad we did as it was good to see that part as well.
This is one place i'd recommend to anyone traveling to Greece for sure.

Maritime Museum & Archaeological Collection of Galaxidi

Reviewed By donnambg - Lichfield, United Kingdom

Spent an extremely fascinating hour at this museum. Galaxidi was Greece's main port and huge ship building area. Nothing of the industry left but a most beautiful little port. Items include beautiful paintings of many of the boats, the logs of what they carries where, if they were wrecked and where. Immersed me into the life of an ancient Greek life. Also many tools and objects, guns and militaria. Far more interesting than expected, extremely well presented and signs in English

Corycian Cave

Reviewed By Amanda M - Corpus Christi, Texas

This cave is not the easiest to find. Ask your hotelier for directions. Or ask any local you meet.
The road up the mountain is narrow, rocky, and steep. It was definitely intimidating. We had an automatic Nissan Micra for the trip and it made it up without any problems, but be advised that if you aren't used to drives like this you might want to hike up instead. Once you get to the end of the road (which in case you're wondering, has plenty of space to turn around for the drive back down), it's a tiny little hike to the entrance of the cave. At first glance, the cave looks small. But once you enter its true size becomes apparent. The cave is huge! You'll want to pack a flash light and maybe a sweater because it's also quite chilly. The cave is a wonder to behold. The history of the cave is sacred and magical - read up on it before you go to have a better appreciation of its isolation.
Remember that the cave is a wild cave - there are no restrooms and there probably won't be any other people there when you go!

Itea Beach

Reviewed By Roberta S - Rhode Island

When you are hot and tired from viewing the sights at Delphi, drive here for a swim. It is about 15 minutes from the hotels in Delphi and is a beautiful spot on the sea. The wind fairly consistently, keeps it cool and allows for windsurfing. The beach swimming is safe and there are beach umbrellas permanently affixed in the sand.

Temple of Apollo

This ancient Greek temple is most famous for the oracle it contains, where pilgrims from all over the ancient world would come to have their fortunes told.

Reviewed By garsilee - Los Angeles, California

The archaeological site in Delphi known for the two sanctuaries , temple of apollo and Athena pronaia dating back to 4th century BC , I mean how old is that? I lost count ...
Naturally with many steps to climb the hike from the entrance will leave you breathless as you reach the top for the breathtaking view of the temple and the Mountains and the clouds above.
Of course the gods wouldn't have it any other way then to build their temples so high up just being here you can feel a sense of wonders of gods in their glory and the surrounding Mountains left me in true appreciation of the past and the history so real just hearing words like temple, oracle , gods and goddesses left me speechless and awestruck and just so thankful that we made this trip !

Flour Throwing Festival in Galaxidi

Every year, the small, usually quiet harbor town of Galaxidi, on the north coast of the Gulf of Corinth, goes crazy on Clean Monday (first day of Lent). Locals and tourists alike take part in ‘flour wars,' but don't be scared, just make sure you wear old clothes, and maybe some goggles! 1.5 tonnes of colored flour is thrown throughout the day, sparing very few people lucky enough to watch from a safe vantage point. It’s thought the event originates from the 19th century, when any form of celebration was forbidden during Ottoman rule. Nevertheless, the locals defied this by dancing in the streets and tossing flour.

Reviewed By AnnitaPs - France

We went there with our friends we stayed from Friday to clean Monday. During all the days there was music playing in the roads and people where partying!!! The flour war during clean Monday was a unique experience, we will never forget! (You need to wear goggles and a mask for protection).

We were on a cruise that went to Delphi (docked at the Itea port). I don't love going on excursions with the ship since they are usually kind of expensive and you're on a bus in a large group. I am so glad we found Taxi Delphi!! They were great to email with. Lina was our driver and was waiting for us next to the ship. We looked like really important people having our driver right there! We were only in port from 7am-1pm. The ruins at Delphi open at 8am so we had arranged for a 7:30am pick up. We got there about ten minutes before they even opened! Being the first people there was awesome! No one is in our pictures! It's like our own private ruins. If you find yourself in the area and need transportation use this company. They are great! We even joked with Lina about the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding!! "Oh you're vegetarian? You have lamb then!" She was great!!

Delphi Archaeological Museum

A museum containing some of the sculptures and artifacts excavated from the Oracle.

Reviewed By Stanner57 - Princeton Junction, New Jersey

The museum building is physically attractive. Several of the larger exhibits (e.g., Kouroi of Delphi, Sphinx of Naxos, and Charioteer of Delphi) are quite famous, but the museum has many other treasures and is one of the most visited in Greece. There is a small museum shop and place to get coffee nearby.

Metamorfoseos tou Sotiros Church

Reviewed By adalbert3 - Newport Beach, California

Local church in the middle of Itea. It has a few mosaics on the exterior entry and the interior has partial painted ceilings, carved wood, various icons, large chandeliers and a wonderful patterned floor. This is not a must see, but it is a wonderful place to take a few moments and be thankful. I like it because it is more a modern church that is an active part of the community, not a historical museum that was popular 200 years ago.
