The driving distance between Athens to Delphi is 182 km. It takes approximately 2h 30m to drive from Athens to Delphi.

Perhaps the best time to visit Delphi is in the springtime, when temperatures are mild and you can enjoy the area without a large number of tourists about.

Upon request, our menu can include vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options. Consideration is also made for religious diets such as Kosher or halal.

Unfortunately sections of the archaeological site of Delphi are not wheelchair accessible as the site is placed on a hillside with a steep rocky path with uneven stone steps. However the archaeological museum of Delphi is wheelchair accessible.

Photography is not allowed within the premises of the museum per the policy and regulations of the Greek State. Photography and videos are however allowed in the archaeological site.
