Delphi is the main goal of sailing to Itea’s port. Delphi is the ancient sanctuary that grew rich and greatly influential as the seat of Pythia, the oracle who was consulted about important decisions throughout the ancient world.


Delphi was created by Apollo. Here he slayed a giant serpent Pytho and threw him into the cleft. High priestess and oracle of the Temple of Apollo Pythia was inhaling fumes from the decomposing Pytho’s body over the cleft to give her mind to Apollo and speak his words.
