Todays tour will start by departing from Athens Pireaus port and head for Delphi which is one of the treasures of Greece. Our driving route will take us to pass through the villages of Levadia, Thebes and Arachova which is just 15 minutes drive away from Ancient Delphi and famous for it’s bright multi coloured carpets and handcrafts.
