Delphi is quite some way from Athens so I would think that you would need at least two days to visit there. I think you should choose between Athens and Delphi, not both.

In Athens there is heaps to do for two days: the Acropolis, Lycabettus, the museums (several), shopping, exploring the Plaka and Monastiraki, open air dining, and more. Visiting the temple at Sounion is also possible.

No, not delphi -- 3.5 hours travel each way, 7 hours total. Athens has enough to fill 4-5 days, let alone 2! Rather than repeat ourselves, why not use the "Search" slot and put in Athens Sightseeing or "2 days in Athens." Or -- go to Trip Advisor Greece Forum and put in "2 days in Athens" in the Search slot on that travel board. I guarantee you, you will find at LEAST 100 threads with complete details of all the key sights.

We were in Athens for 3 days and took a one day tour to Delphi; it was interesting and beautiful but with only two days, I think I would just stay put in Athens. Seems like Athens sometimes get a bad rap, but we really liked it and found lots to see and do.
