Delphi Attractions: A full day tour to Delphi begins by going north, driving through the countryside on the way to Thebes with its acres of cotton fields. According to Greek mythology this is where the famous hero Hercules was born. The next stop on your tour is the spring of Krias in Levadia. Here is where the mysterious oracle, Trophonious performed. We drive on and take a break for a snack - traditional yogurt with honey and homemade tiropita (cheese pie) will hit the spot in Zemeno before we reach Arahova. The scenic village of Arahova, nestled on the mountainside, is famous for its handmade carpets and rugs. After Arahova we will arrive in Delphi.
