Transportation to Delphi

There are many ways to get to Delphi and it just depends on how much you want to spend and how easy you want the trip to be. Many people include Delphi with an overnight trip to Meteora

Buses to Delphi

There are several local buses a day to and from Athens. The trip takes about three hours and will cost around 10E. In the summer book early because space is scarce. There is also a daily bus to and from Patras which is helpful if you are coming from or going to Italy. There is also a bus to Larissa where you can change for a bus to Meteora. You can find bus info for Delphi at

George the Famous Taxi Driver

Most travel agents offer tours to Delphi which are fine if you like tours, the problem being if you are adventurous or irritated by the slow pace, since a tour can only go as quickly as its slowest member. The way I recommend is by taxi excursion which turns out to be a bargain if you are traveling with enough people to fill up one or more taxis since they charge by the trip and not by the person. The last time I went we left Athens about 8am and drove to Delphi and then on along the coast to Galaxidi, Nafpaktos and we crossed by ferry at Antririon-Rion and drove back to Athens on the highway across the northern Peloponessos.
Many people combine Delphi with
Meteora for a two-day trip.

Renting a Car

If you are planning to rent a car and drive from Athens to Delphi check out Swift Rent-a-Car . They will pick you up at the airport or your hotel and drive you to the National road and let you by-pass the notorious Athens traffic. See their website at

Tours to Delphi

Many travel agencies in Greece include Delphi in their organized land tours. It is included in the three and four day classical tour and also as an overnight trip with Meteora and a 3-Day Trip with Meteora. It can also be done as a Day Trip and a 2-Day Trip. Along with George's Taxi Tour this is the easiest way to see Delphi. The bus picks you up at your hotel in the morning and drops you off after the tour (unless your hotel is nowhere near the route the bus takes). The 7-Day Grand Tour (includes Meteora and just about every other important place on the mainland), Northern Greece Five Days Tour (Thessaloniki & Macedonia Area), The 4-Day Classical Tour, and the 3-Day Classical Tour all include Delphi. These programs are make very efficient use of time and there are usually interesting people on them which can make them a lot of fun.
