Delphi is northwest of Athens more than a 2 hour drive. Most of the buses on these tours are uncomfortable with small seats. Many of them do have restrooms, but they are kept locked because the driver doesn't like to clean them. As you can see it is in the mountains. It's fairly green here - could be almost anyplace. There are a lot of olive trees, plus they are growing wheat, cotton, and potatoes. The ruins here date from about 6th century BC. There is also a museum.
