ITINERARY

Visit: Athens, Delphi, Kalambaka Meteora

Do not miss the opportunity with this two day tour from Athens to see and visit the majestic Meteora grey rocks and its cliff-top monasteries.

Day 1: Athens - Kalambaka

Today you will arrive in Delphi at around noon. Famous for its theatre, Temple of Apollo and ancient ruins, Delphi was considered the centre of the earth and the universe and played a central role in the classical Greek world. Visit the archaeological site and the Temple of Apollo, famous for its oracle. In the afternoon after lunch we will depart through Central Greece and the cities of Lamia, where you'll have a short stop. Then we continue to Trikala crossing the Thessalian plain, to Kalambaka, a small town built at the foot of the majestic grey rocks and the gateway to Meteora.  There will be a short stop for souvenirs. Overnight stay in Kalambaka.

Meals: Dinner

Day 2: Kalambaka - Athens

After breakfast, we leave for nearby Meteora for a tour of the cliff top monasteries. You'll visit two different Byzantine Monasteries* built on top of rock towers, providing a fantastic view over the plain. Meteora is included on the UNESCO World Heritage Monument list. The monasteries are perched on top of towers of sandstone, which for centuries provided totally inaccessible retreats for the monks and is considered to be one of the most beautiful areas of mainland Greece and its monasteries are one of the country's most unique attractions. On your return, you may like an optional visit to a factory of Byzantine style icons. Return to Athens passing by the heroic monument of Leonidas King of Sparta in Thermopylae, where we will have a  short stop for photos. The tour returns to Athens late in the afternoon.

Meals: Breakfast


*Please note: To enter the monasteries, appropriate clothing is required. Ladies should not wear short skirts and must have long sleeves. Men are not allowed to wear shorts.
