Ilias points out the sanctuary of Apollo and its superb museum, but also the Sacred Way that leads up to the temple, and the dormitories where supplicants would stay while they were being healed. She explains that, as a sign of their gratitude, they left small tokens on the Omphalos (‘bellybutton’), which – in ancient times – was believed to be the navel of the world.

On the mainland, trace Greek mythology among the magnificent ruins of Mycenae and Epidaurus, and on the island of Hydra, stroll the narrow lanes of this picturesque seaside city and soak up a traditional way of life among age-old stone houses and waterfront cafes.
