Greece Vacations: Delphis Mystique
Greece Vacations wouldnt be what they are without going to Delphi, where in ancient times it was considered as the center of the earth, the place where heaven and earth met. Mount Parnassus should be your destination if you love skiing during winter or if a hike across lush forests is your thing; maybe youll feel the magic of the mountain. The Acropolis in Athens is the most famous Greek attraction but the Temple of Apollo is fast gaining ground right on its tail because of the unique pull of the Oracle of Delphi that was once the link between man and the gods. Visit the Delphi Archaeological Museum to see artifacts discovered at the Oracle of Delphi; a proof that people in those days really believed in the predictions and fortune telling. Delphi may or may not be the center of the earth, but going there will surely be worth your while.
