Delphi Questions

Jump to last reply

We are planning on driving from Nafplio to Delphi on July 5th, staying overnight, and then on to Athens. I ahve a few questions:
1. I would rather not book accomodations ahead of time to give us some flexibility in case we decide to stay in Nafplio. Is this ok to do during the summer? My impression of Delphi is that most people see it as part of a daytrip and don't actually stay overnight to it might be ok. We are not looking for luxury accomodations, just something clean and cheap.
2. I noticed when we were at the Colosseum a few summers ago there were a ton of tour guides waiting outside that you could join for a tour, so there was no need to book a tour in advance. Is Delphi similar or do you need to hire a guide before going? Would you suggest going without a guide, and researching the site beforehand, or hiring one? How much should we expect to pay?
3. How long does it take to see the sight and the museum?

Thanks in advance!
