In ancient Greece, Delphi was considered the center of the world. The site’s sanctuary was the symbol of unity for many centuries. For two hundred years, the Delphic oracle, coming directly from Apollo, was regarded as the most trustworthy in predicting the future. It was delivered by a priestess known as the Pythia and interpreted by the priests of Apollo. Our visit to Delphi will bring us to the Sanctuary of Apollo, whose Sacred Way climbs to the 4th-century BC temple.  On the way to the temple, we’ll pass by the Roman Agora, a marketplace that provided visitors a place to shop before ascending the way. The site also contains a Greek amphitheater, built into the natural slope of the hill, which offers spectacular views of the valley and was the scene of many musical and dramatic performances during Dephi’s various festivals.
