Central Greece

Central Greece is home to unfathomable beauty known to very few visitors.

The most visited location within Central Greece is probably Delphi. The ancient site is the location of an oracle, famous in ancient times for the obscure prophecies given by the priestesses of Apollo. Important figures, heroes and philosophers would travel to Delphi to visit the priestess Pythia and hear of their fate.

Visitors that come to the area can explore the archaeological site, admire the ancient stadium or simply enjoy the view of a thousand olive trees sprawling around the valley.

Polydrossos

Polydrosos is one of the lesser known traditional villages in Greece located at the foothill of Mount Parnassus untouched by the numerous waves of tourists that visit the country every year.

The architecture is simple yet efficient; the grey stone houses, softened by time, are designed to retain the heat in the winter and remain cool in the summer.

There are no 5-star hotels here; you will find though, in the kind faces of the locals and the serene simplicity of their guesthouses, a hospitality that is unparalleled.

You can also find a winery, observe the winemaking process and taste a few different varieties of Greek wine.

Surrounded by extensive and ancient woodlands, the area around the village is a paradise to hikers, mountain bikers and skiers.

Vagonetto

Only about half an hour from the village of Polydrossos, you will find a unique thematic park called Vagonetto.

This abandoned bauxite mine offers visitors a unique wagon cart exploration of the excavated caves and the experience of feeling like a real miner.

A great opportunity to learn about the history of bauxite extraction in the area.

Β 

Amfissa

In close proximity to the oracle of Delphi, Amfissa has the advantages of a small town as well as a wide variety of quaint shops while retaining that traditional village life feel.

Busy squares, architectural gems, windows and door frames that beg to be photographed, leading to small courtyards covered under heavy grape vines and colorful flowers.
