Delphi sits on a spur of Mount Parnassus in the Phocis valley. According to myth, Zeus, seeking to find the center of the earth, released two eagles from the east and west. They crossed over Delphi. The location thus became the navel of the universe, the omphalos. Today, the UNESCO World Heritage site of ancient Delphi is the most popular day trip from Athens.
The modern city of Delphi lies to the west of the archaeological site. For a tourist, a pilgrimage can result in the finest of fond memories. The site is serene, the views sublime.
The climate is typically Mediterranean; summers are hot with scant rainfall. Winters can be cold in Delphi due to its mountain elevation. It can snow in winter.
April, May, October and November offer moderate temperatures. It can get quite hot in July and August, with average highs nearing 90 degrees--but you'll not have to worry much about the rain.
