On your shared guided day trip from Athens to Delphi, you will be stopping at the quaint picturesque village of Arachova situated at an elevation of 3,000 feet. This small picturesque traditional village is on the slopes of Mt Parnassus. There are only approx 4,000 inhabitants and yet the village has been famous since the 1400's for their carpets, olives, and vineyards. Maybe you've heard of their famed 'black wines'?
In the last decade it has been remade into somewhat of a ski resort town due to the best skiing in all of Greece being on the North side of Mt Parnassus. It's always been a stopping off point due to it's close proximity to the sacred Delphi.
Make sure to pick up some souvenirs of their great hand made marmalade, sweets, drinks, and carpets. Also ask around for their wonderful cheeses. In particular, Formaella, (which is sold only in Arachova). Plus, you can never go wrong with the local Tsipouro (a grappa like liquor). Book with Archaeologous.
