Stadium, Delphi, Greece 1998
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!
From Delphi there is a bus to Patras, it takes 4 hours and will cost about 12 euro. From here you can go to Nafplio, by changing busses either in Tripoli or Korinthos.Easiest will be to change bus in Korinthos, on the Isthmos, as Tripoli has two busstations....
Otherwise you have to travel back to Athens,and change there busstation !!
Busses to Delphi leave from busstation B, at the Liossion street,reached from Athens centre by bus 024. ( stop is opp. the Amaliahotel at Amaliasboulevard)
The bus to Nafplio leaves from busstation A, reached by bus 051 near Omoniasquare.
Have a good stay !! maybe you must choose one destination and save a day travelling... maria
Travel Tips for Delphi
Delphi Area Nature Background
The Pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi lies at the foot of Mount Parnassos, within the angle formed by the twin rocks of the Phaedriades ("the shining ones") ca 700 m high. This semicircular spur overlooks the Pleistos (today Xeropotamos) formed by Parnasse and Mt. Cirphis. Between them rises the Castalian Spring.
Even today the rock faces reflect a dazzling glare.
Southwest of Delphi, about 15 km away, is the Corinthian Gulf.
modern Delphi, modern technology!
After your trek up and around and through the ancient temple area, the ampitheatre, the oracle, you will likely find yourself passing through tiny, modern Dephi...do stop, for the panoramic views, a bite to eat, a look at the surrounding bldgs...and if you want to immediately let the folks back home know about the paradise you're in...Delphi has its own INTERNET CAFE!!
The temple of Apollo
The temple is situated at the centre of the whole place. The visible ruins belong to the last temple (4th century BC), it was erected on the ruins of a previous one. Inside it, Pythia was giving her equivocal prophesies... The monument has been restored.
Modern Delphi is situated immediately west of the archaeological site and hence is a popular tourist destination. It is on a major highway linking Amfissa along with Itea and Arachova.
There are many hotels and guest houses in the town, and many taverns and bars. The main streets are narrow, and often one-way.

You may watch my high resolution photo of Delphi on Google Earth according to the following coordinates 38º 28' 44.13" N 22º 28' 51.10" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Modern Delphi Town.
The modern village of Delphi lies a short distance from the archaeological site. You can have a very enjoyable time walking around the village and visiting some of the many beautiful and unique shops in the area.
There are hotels of all categories in Delphi, where you can find accommodation, and there is also a fine selection of restaurants and tavernas, bars and cafes, and nightclubs. There are also banks and a tourist office, so everything that you may need can be found here. This village is one of my favourite villages in Greece. Narrow streets with particular atmosphere and tavernas with GREAT views!
