Silversea Luxury Cruises To ITEA

148945106

Built deep in the Crissaean bay, surrounded by the Corinthian Gulf, lies the little town of Itea. A relative baby by the standards of most Greek cities, Itea was only founded in 1830, although it was an important player in Greece’s independence three years prior. So the town is relatively modern – although the wide sandy beaches, brilliant blue sea and pretty picturesque square are hallmarks for every coastal town in Greece, regardless of age. View more

But the reason for visiting Itea is not to drink in the exceptional views of the Peloponnese nor taste the freshly caught fish, cooked to perfection. It is, of course, to experience the UNESCO World Heritage Site Delphi, by far the jewel in the crown of Ancient Greece. The so called centre of the world for ancient Greece, Delphi was the seat of the famous oracle Pythia. World leaders would travel to consult Pythia on decisions which would then ripple through humanity. Pythia was said to be the direct mouthpiece for Apollo, the god of light, knowledge and harmony. While Delphi’s exact age is unknown (the period of Ancient Greece ranged from 500-300 BC), the town definitely has significance as a religious shrine as early as the 7th century BC. Zeus determined the site by sending two eagles, one heading east, the other heading west. Where the eagles crossed paths would be the centre of Grandmother Gaia – or Earth. Set on the slopes of the mighty Mount Parnassus, the city is a fairy tale landscape of monasteries, amidst vineyards, almond trees and olive groves.

Excursions in ITEA

Ossios Loukas Monastery

Embrace the splendid natural and historic beauty of Itea during this picturesque, half-day excursion to the Ossios Loukas Monastery, and a visit to Delphi Village.


Ossios Loukas Monastery

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate one-hour drive to the renowned Ossios Loukas Monastery, the world's finest example of a 12th-century Byzantine church. Upon arrival, take a walking tour of the church, which includes some of the most beautiful mosaics and frescoes in Greece.


Delphi Village

Next, re-board your coach for the approximate 45-minute drive through breathtaking mountain scenery, then pass by the village of Arachova and its quaint houses built on the slopes of Paranassos en route to Delphi. Some free time is made available to explore this small but charming village, which offers splendid views of the sacred valley and the ship below.


Following your visit, commence the approximate 30-minute drive back to the pier. Your return route offers even more spectacular views of the diverse landscape, which includes wooded green slopes, pine-tree hills and the sacred valley with its olive trees.
