Delphi Basics

  • There is no train station in Delphi, but getting to Delphi from Athens is easy by bus. Multiple buses depart for Delphi every day from KTEL Bus Station B: Liosion, about a 15-minute taxi ride north of the city center. Tickets can be purchased online about 10 days out from the trip (recommended during the high season) or at the station. Arrive at the bus station early during the summer months, as having a ticket will not guarantee you a seat if you arrive after the bus is full. The trip takes approximately 3 hours, with a 10-minute break to stretch your legs, buy a snack, or use the restroom.
  • Most Delphi hotels located along the town’s main streets offer only limited street parking. If traveling by car and staying in the town center, you may have to park just outside the main streets and walk in to your hotel. Nidimos Hotel is the only centrally-located hotel with private parking: an underground garage (first come, first serve) with e-vehicle charging stations.
  • If you’re visiting Delphi and have a car, you can also consider staying in a nearby town and driving in to see the archaeological site and museum. The best towns to stay near Delphi are Arachova, a picturesque mountain ski village on the slopes of Mount Parnassus (15-minute drive east), and Galaxidi, a charming and serene Neoclassical port village on the Corinthian Gulf (30-minute drive west).
  • Best Restaurants in Delphi: To Patriko Mas (great view and rustic cuisine), Taverna Vakhos (innovative local menu, great beer/wine/spirits, good for vegans & sensitive diets), and Souvlaki Dionisis (cheap and excellent gyros).
  • The best way to experience the Delphi archaeological site and museum is through a guided tour. For travelers staying nearby, the best private tour is by local tour guide Georgia Hasioti. The best day tour from Athens is through Ammon Express.
  • Booking.com is the best website for booking hotels in Delphi.

Staying in Delphi

Delphi is compact town, and it’s easy to get around on foot. Most of Delphi’s hotels, shops, and restaurants line its two parallel main streets, offering fantastic views over the beautiful olive groves of the Pleistos River Valley to the Golf of Corinth. A few good hotels perched on the streets above the main area offer greater privacy in a serene village setting, but Delphi is a quaint town with little nightlife; even the busiest parts of Delphi are quiet after hours. All of these hotels are within walking distance of restaurants, shops, the bus station (and bus from Athens), Ancient Delphi, and the Delphi Archaeological Museum.
