How can i get from athens aiport to delphi
I didn't realize that it would be so hard to get from Delphi to Meteora. I have been reading, and it seems that our best bet would be to try to get the (:53 train from Levadia to Kalambaka. That means that we need to get a bus that would allow us lots of time as it seems that we also need to find a taxi to get us from the bus station to the train station. One question is whether anyone knows what times buses leave Delphi ( guess I should try to find a schedule) and two, this I can't find out. Will we have a hard time finding a taxi in Levadia?
Thanks so much for any info. Elaine
Are there any transport options from Delphi to Parnassus Ski center and back?
thank you in advance
Is there somewhere I can book a donkey ride in or around Delphi? I was told by a colleague this was possible and would like to get in touch with a company/agency that can help.
Is there public carparks in delphi?
Ok, here is the question. How much time does the site deserve? I am history and archaeology person.
1 tour said 1 hour for the museum and 45 minutes at the site itself. Most 1 day tours give 2-3 hours, splitting the time between the museum and the site. Also, none of the 1 day programs go to the Sanctuary of Athena.
Does anyone know the current posted hours at the Delphi Museum?
What about the Ancient site hours?
We are going to Greece 08/31 (arrive 9am)- 09/07 (leave at 11am) and we want to drive to Delphi from the airport, then to Meteora from there and then back to Athens to visit acropolis. Do any of you know how long/safe these drives are (Airport to Delphi, Delphi to Meteora, and Meteora to Airport). I'm also a little worried about driving at night if the roads are dangerous mountain roads :) Also would 1 night in Delphi and 1 night in Meteora be enough to at least see a couple of the main areas? I know more time would be much better but we don't have the time available. We are going to Santorini for 2 nights so we don't have too much time left. We might drop Meteora but we don't know when/if we will ever be back to Greece so we would really, really, love to see that beautiful place. Also, do I need a special driving license to rent a car there?
Thank you everyone for your help :)
I visited Delphi a couple of weeks ago - I had a great time. I know this sounds crazy, but I met the cutest kitten i would love to take home to live a long and healthy life in California. I have to go back to Athens in a couple of weeks so I was wondering if anyone has ever done anything like this. I know you need to have a vet check them out a month before you come to the US (which would be a challenge).
I know this sounds crazy, but I thought I would try. Does anyone take care of them or feed them right now? It would be great to help this kitten that was so friendly. Thanks!
My wife and I (age 29) will be making a day trip (one night) from Athens to Delphi and are looking for recomendations on a good hotel. Nothing fancy but in a nice area close to restaurants/shops and sites and with parking for our rental car (70-110 Euro).
Thanks for all your help

I would be travelling from Athens to Delphi and halting at delphi for the night.
The next day I have a late evening ferry to catch from Athens -Piraeus.
My question is :
Is it possible to start from delphi and go to Olympia , halt there for a couple of hours and be back in time ( around 8 pm) to Piraeus?
1. Is it possible to do this by Buses or do we need to hire a cab for this.
2.How much is the travel time from delphi to Olympia and again from Olympia to Athens in both these modes of transport?
All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
I am wondering how much a private tour guide for the ruins at Delphi should cost. I am considering booking a private two-day tour from Athens and they are offering a tour guide for Delphi (who can come inside the site) for an additional 100Euros. Is that a standard price? It seems a bit high to me. Any info would be appreciated!
May I ask what the traffic & route is like to do this journey please?
How bad is the traffic for this leg? Is the road signage good? Journey time?
May I ask what the traffic & route is like to do this journey please?
How bad is the traffic around Corinth, which no doubt I'll have to go past?
What are the prospects of skiing in late March please?
My fiancee and I are interested in having a small civil wedding ceremony in Delphi next year. I have figured out what paperwork we need but are looking for assistance in coordinating the site. Most Greek or destination wedding planners only plan on the islands.
Any information or help is greatly appreciated!
Hi guys, I'm planning to visit Delphi from Athens next week. I couldn't find any official current timetables on the internet, and the ktel.org website seems to be down. Does anyone of you know the arrival/departure times (also return trip)?
And what about ticketing? From another post at the Athens forum I have learned that you can't by tickets in advance, so I will be at the bus terminal around half (?) an hour prior to departure. Can you already by a roundtrip ticket in Athens, or is it again only sold in Delphi?
I have just finishes school and want to travel Greece with two friends... none of us can drive. We are flying into Athens, staying there for three days, and then getting the bus to Delphi where we'll stay for a night. What is the easiest way to then get to Nafplion? I know this involves some backtracking towards Athens, but is there a bus that goes the whole way?
Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks!
What are the prospects of having good snow cover to enable snowboarding in Mid-December?
Is it a sure bet??
Hello the community!
Did they have anybody who could give me some information & advice to join Lefkadas from Delphi?
I would like to know which coach we could get there.
We will do Athens-Delphi. And after we would like to go directly to Lefkadas.
I couldn't found any real information about KTEL buses about that.
So any kind of help will be great!
THKS in advance!
Enjoy your ride!
I dont drive and I dont want to figure transportation options, so I will do a tour. But question is, should I do a 1 day or a 2 day tour to this legendary site?
We are arriving in Athens and then travelling to Delphi and staying for two nights. We want to go to Arachova which is about 6 miles away. As we don't have a car is there any way we can get there like hiring a bike etc??? Also as we are in Greece for a week is there any other places people can recommend we see and stay while there.
Please could someone let me know what the winter opening times are for the delphi site ( I hope to visit in Jan 09)
