Driving to Olympia

by Durfun

Hi,

May I ask what the traffic & route is like to do this journey please?

How bad is the traffic around Corinth, which no doubt I'll have to go past?

Thank you

Darshan

Side Bar to this Q. Make sure that when in Delphi you visit the Museum. Here you will see 2 stone carvings that depict the "Parting of the Reid SEA" ONLY EVIDENCE of such an event. Its shows waves parted and people crossing. ALSO in the cases where the gold objects are , there is a small item that dates back to and depicts the "ARCH of the COVENANT". The ONLY known item of its kind. It is a small miniature.(depicted in the original movie of "Raiders of the lost Arch."

Thaks for that! However, is there a 'Reid' sea? It this a reference to the Red sea at all? If so, that's located in a very different part of the world..

Re: Driving to Olympia

by juliogg

The Reid (Red) Sea. Red was a miss translation back in the day. And yes it has to do with it, but these pieces happen to be in this museum. And reid has to do with plants like a swamp.

Re: Driving to Olympia

by Durfun

Thanks.

Point noted. Are you talking about 'reeds' and swamps now??

Re: Driving to Olympia

This is a very nice and easy drive. From Delphi you go down toward Itea (small village on the beach) from there you continue along the coast till you get to the great bridge (rio-antirio) which is crossing to Patra (pay bridge). Continue on a reasonble road (not highway but good) towards Olympia. It is about 4-5 hours if you go straight but we decided to do this in two "legs" and spent the one night on a campground at the beach.

Thanks for the thumbs up. You have nice pics from Delphi & Olympia :)

Travel Tips for Delphi

The Oracle and the bus journey to it

by juliaorosa

I've always loved Greek mythology and the Oracle of Delphi was always one of those things I had to see before I die.
Anyway, the bus journey from Athens to Delphi is quite something by itself! it takes about 3h (the last bus is around 6pm and everyone always gets that one) and when you start leaving the capital you see those high mountains in the distance. I fell asleep and when I woke I was in the same level as the clouds! In this very steep roads without any protection on the sideways. I thought I was going to die and the bus fall from a cliff at every turn, nearly had a heart attack! (and I remember clearly the lady in the seat next to me holding her boyfriend's hand as if it was the end of the world).

Delphi itself is quite small and the main sight is a bit further down the main road. IT'S AMAZING! One of my favourite things about Greece, definitely. To sit there and look at those ruins, to imagine that wars and lives were defined by the belief that a woman was possessed by a god was telling the only truth.

Modern versus Ancient Delphi

by Jmill42

Ancient Delphi, obviously, was worthy and remains worthy of protection from further harm to its structures. That is why the village of Kastri, which had occupied the area of the sanctuary since medival times, was moved to its present postion, and renamed Delphi, 1.5 kilometers to the west of the ruins.

Archaeological Museum

by MartinaH

A visit to the Archaeological Museum is a must as it houses one of the finest collections in the whole of Greece . The star attraction is the larger than life bronze charioteer from the 5th century BC - an extraordinarily well preserved figure which was part of a group that included a four-horse chariot.

The museum's 13 galleries are a treasure of sculptures, art work and priceless gifts offered to the sanctuary of the Greek gods.

The Theatre

by Lilasel

35 rows of stone benches with capacity of some 5000 spectators. It was here that dramatic and lyric (singing to the accompaniment of the lyre) competitions took place.

It seems that I was trying to remember my talent of actress playing on this ancient scene :-)

The temple of Athena Pronaea

by AndyRG

The temple was built in the 4th century BC, it is also known as "Tholos". It had 20 doric columnes, today there are just three reconstructed of them (in 1938).
Near it, you can see the sacred Castalia spring (and also the place for giving the offerings to nymph Castalia).
