What you'll do

We will start from the center of Athens and take about 2 hours to reach the Delphi oracle. On our way, we will pass important points of interest: Battlefield of Plataea and Marathon, the place where Oedipus met and killed his father, according to legend and great ancient cities such as Thebes and Thespies. After our visit to the archaeological site of Delphi and the museum, we will eat at an amazing restaurant in the village of Delphi, overlooking the Delphi valley and their ancient harbor. Afterwards we will head higher up Mount Parnassos (1350 meters) and pass through beautiful mountain peaks. There is the Korikeion Andron, the Pan Cave and the first oracle in the area. Going down the other side of the mountain, we will visit the ancient city of Lilia, where the source of the river Kifissos (one of the two rivers of ancient Athens) is located. There are also 2 ancient temples (Apollo and Artemis), and there are also strange signs of the Knight Templars. Our final destination will be the battlefield of the 300 Spartans and King Leonidas against the Persians. The place that became one of the most important battles in World History.

Your hosts

I grew up in a small town on Mount Parnassos. From a young age, I learned to love its history and myths. I work, study and discuss all of this throughout my life. Unbelievably, many historical things have happened here. I consider myself lucky to have lived in such an important and beautiful area. I love History and Mythology and read nonstop. I enjoy talking to other people about history, mythology, philosophy, and hearing different points of view. Concepts like "fate", "prophecy and anointing", "soul", "myths and reality" are my favorites! Visiting ancient ruins and standing in ancient temples is something unique to me. It's something that fills my soul with emotions!

Where you'll be

What we will do will be something completely different from a visit to the Delphi oracle. Parnassos is not just Delphi. There are also many ruined ancient cities and temples and the site of Dionysus's greatest celebration. The battlefield of the 300 Spartans is just a monument. But the path we take and the feeling we will have when we find ourselves on the hill where the Spartans died will be something unique.
