Excellent day for this excursion to Delphi and to the site of Thermopylae! Our driver George was very friendly, interesting in his mythological explanations and careful in driving without forgetting the site proposed for lunch… very pleasant restaurant with a very beautiful view in the calm of the village of Delphi!
