Day 27: Delphi

The day started out driving to Delphi. The bus had a mechanical problem and we were stuck for one hour at a random hotel, so a coffee break was in order. Once that was fixed we had a great drive with amazing views. The bridge that crosses the Corinthian Gulf looked like sail boats and had a Venetian fortress on the right side.

Arriving in Delphi

We made it to Delphi with 5 minutes to make it within the site. Delphi is the site of the oracle of Apollo, with the temple of Apollo, the theater built into the hillside, and a stadium at the top of the hill.
