Bus service timetables Athens-Delphi

by PerAsperaAdAstra

Hi guys, I'm planning to visit Delphi from Athens next week. I couldn't find any official current timetables on the internet, and the ktel.org website seems to be down. Does anyone of you know the arrival/departure times (also return trip)?

And what about ticketing? From another post at the Athens forum I have learned that you can't by tickets in advance, so I will be at the bus terminal around half (?) an hour prior to departure. Can you already by a roundtrip ticket in Athens, or is it again only sold in Delphi?

For the bus timetables try here: www.athensguide.com/practicalinfo/busschedulesB.htm

I bought my outward ticket at the ticket office just before travelling and my return ticket on the bus coming back. Remember it's a 3 hour trip each way and so to make the most of your day get as early a bus as you can.

Have a good trip!

And what about getting bakc from Delphi? When is the last bus going? How much earlier do I have to get my ticket?

At some KTEL terminals they accept booking by phone, but you have to pay your ticket at least 30 min before departure (else it is canceled). I don't know if this works with KTEL to Delphi. Just ask at your hotel desk to help and do it for you.
Also most KTELs issue return tickets (sometimes at better price) but you have to validate date/time at the local station - you can do it at Delphi on your arrival.

the bus "station" in delphi is a little tourist shop on the east side of town which often only opens 5 minutes before the bus gets there. or you can buy it there the day before. there is a schedule posted on their door and there are several buses daily to athens.

Travel Tips for Delphi

Climbing all those stairs

by mvtouring

The one thing that you have to realize when you visit Delphi is that you need to be fairly fit as there are many stairs to be climbed in order to move from one street to the next. That is in new Delphi

Ticket

by gale.blog.pl

Here's a ticket to one of the objects :) Just to let you know what it looks like.

Don't pay much attention to the price, I'm a student so I pay only half price - and I don't remember whose ticket this one was ;)))

The Altar of the Chians

by matza

The large altar of the sanctuary, in front of the temple of Apollo, was paid for and erected by the people of Chios, in the 5th century B.C., according to an inscription cut on the cornice. The monument was made of black marble, except for the base and cornice which were of white marble, resulting in an impressive color contrast. The altar was restored in 1920.

The stadium

by AndyRG

It was first built in the 5th century BC, it is 200 m long (the stadium you see belongs to the roman period).
The Pythian Games were taking place there every 4 years, after 582 BC. The award was a laureate garland. In Olympic Games (in ancient Olympia), the prize was a branch from an olive tree. The Pythian Games were the most important athletic fact after the Olympic Games.

ATHENA TEMPLE & GYM
As you...

by SirRichard

ATHENA TEMPLE & GYM
As you come from the town, pass the main Archeological Site, follow the road, and at your right is this little Site.
The Tholos is probably the most widely recognized building on the site because of the color of the marble and the fact that it is a round temple. Strangely enough what the temple was used for and who it commemorates is not known. Beyond is the Gymnasium and the Paliastra which were used to train the athletes who competed in the Pythian games, held every four years to commemorate Apollo's victory over Python. The Castelian spring is where pilgrims washed themselves before consulting the oracle and the crystal clear water still flows from it has it has for thousands of years.
