• Delphi, Greece
    Roman Forum


Perched high on the southern slopes of Mt. Parnassos, and overlooking the gleaming waters of the Gulf of Corinth, Delphi is without doubt the most spectacular of Greece's ancient sites. Here you can stroll the ruins of the Sanctuary of Apollo, and its great Archaeological Museum next door, where statues and treasures found on the site help bring the ruins to life. And a short walk away are still more ruins — including the Kastalian Spring and the photogenic Sanctuary of Athena, taking you back to Delphi's prehistoric origins. The modern town nearby is an appealing place to let your pulse slow.
