Overview

Let’s explore ancient oracles & walk at 300 Spartans battlefield!

I was born in Delphi area on Mountain Parnassus, and I feel that Delphi is one of the “must see” in Greece. I may not be objective, but I promise you, that you will love the scenery and immerse yourself in the myths and history. Light of Apollo still lives there.

Korykeio cave is located above Delphi at an altitude of 1400 meters (4500 feet). This is an impressive cave that was one of the most ancient and important sanctuaries of Greece. According to the opinion of many, one of the most important energetic places in the world.

The battlefield of Thermopylae, the place where King Leonidas and the 300 Spartans fought against the Persians, is not an organized archaeological site today, but the scenery between the mountains and the sea there, creates unique emotions. One of the most important battles in the history of Europe took place in this place and it is clearly worth a visit.

Wear comfortable shoes and Let’s go to Mythical Greece!

With us, however, we can guarantee that you will not have any problems.
