Delphi is one of the most well-known attractions in Greece and the small town of Delphi has only a few small hotels to stay at

The Best Hotels in Delphi are mostly located in Delphi Town, which is very close to the archaeological site of Delphi with the famous sanctuary of Athena and the Apollo temple and Stadium. Delphi (along with Acropolis and Meteora) is one of the most important cultural and historical places in Greece, and its significance for the ancient greek civilization was massive. Many people go from Athens to Delphi on a day trip (this is the best day trip from Athens to Delphi with a licensed guide) but you can also stay in the area for one or two nights as it’s a really unique location with stunning views and vibes.

BUT ALSO CHECK:

Delphi was one of the important places in ancient Greece and you can really sense that when you visit the place. Make no mistake: these are some of the most breathtaking views in Greece and I am pretty sure the ancient Greeks did not choose this location by luck. This was their holiest location for centuries BC, so it had to be in a stunning location. After all, it is well known that Pythia (the famous Delphi oracle) was always “high”, so it really did matter where she was.😊

In general, most hotels in Delphi are old and pretty small family businesses, so don’t expect any luxuries and 5-star facilities in this small village. Most people stay in Delphi for one or two nights just to explore the archaeological site and the area, anyways.

Delphi is a small town/village with great views next to the archaeological site that basically lives from tourism and it’s the best place to stay in Delphi (see hotels in Delphi)

The best hotels in Delphi are in the small village/town next to the archaeological site, literally meters away from the site.

Delphi is not that far from Athens, and you can reach it by simply taking the KTEL Bus from the Central Bus Stop at Liosion Street in Athens (possibly the dirtiest and most horrible bus station in the whole country…). There are obviously no flights to Delphi nor any ferries as the location is pretty much in mainland Greece up to the mountains, so you either have to take the bus or drive yourself.

So, there are two ways to reach Delphi from Athens:

  • Take the KTEL Bus from Liosion Bus Station in Athens. You can book your ticket online here but you should go to the kiosk in the bus station to get it printed. I know it sounds weird but you MUST do this, otherwise you won’t be able to travel! These are the timetables for the Bus from Athens to Delphi and back (but always check the official website):

There are 4 KTEL Buses per day from Athens to Delphi from Liosion Bus Station in Athens.
  • BUT I highly recommend you just make a day trip from Athens to Delphi with a licensed guide like this one, which will save you so much time and possibly money along the way, as you will get the most out of it.

  • How many days do you need in Delphi: in my opinion, you should only go for a day trip to Delphi from Athens (or elsewhere) but it might not be a bad idea to stay for 1 or 2 nights to explore the area and the archaeological site and the Delphi Museum

  • How to Get to Delphi: you can only get to Delphi by bus or by driving; it is a 3 hour trip either by bus or car and in order to get the KTEL Bus you have to go to Liosion Bus Station in Athens
  • Best Tour For the Delphi Archaeological Site: you should definitely get a licensed guide that will explain to you what you are actually seeing because there is a lot to digest and learn in this impressive area. The best guided tours in Delphi are this one and this one.
