Welcome to Arahova
The small town of Arahova, just 8km east of Delphi, is largely geared towards Greek winter travellers, especially skiers hitting the slopes of Parnassos National Park. Set on a rocky spur of Mt Parnassos at an altitude of 960m, it’s a charming little place that makes a good alternative base for Delphi visitors. Stepped alleyways lead away from the commercialised through road into cobbled backstreets, while the historical 'clock on the rock', an impressive stone clock tower, surveys the mountainside from below the imposing former town hall.
Touristy shops along the main road sell embroidery, handwoven bags and flokati (shaggy woollen rugs), while Arahova is also noted for its formaela cheese, honey, hilopites (fettuccine-style pasta) and hearty red wine.
