Delphi is beautiful, and I don't think enough people know it. Too many tourists are tempted by the lure of the Greek islands and miss the interior which so far looks like one big mountain. We got in around one in the afternoon and very soon after the tour buses pulled away and it seemed like we had the entire new town of Delphi to ourselves! While there isn't much to do in town except eat and look at the view I think I could stay here forever doing just those two things!
The bus ride from Athens to Delphi takes a little under 3 hours and is beautiful and interesting. There are many run down buildings heading out of the city and the economic struggle that the counrty is still going though is evident, (though the spirit of the people is amazing). Once you get higher into the mountains and further into the mainland, the mist that perpetually clings to the peeks makes it easy to imagine a Greek god waiting for you, or the possibility of bumping into a mythical beast high on the top.
