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.

On the first day, you will arrive in Delphi at around noon. Famous for its theater, Temple of Apollo, and ancient ruins, Delphi was considered the center 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 depart through Central Greece and the cities of Lamia (short stop), Trikala crossing the Thessalian plain, to Kalambaka (a small town built at the foot of the majestic grey rocks, and crowded by the METEORA Monasteries (short stop for souvenirs). Overnight stay in Kalambaka.

On the second day leave in the morning for nearby Meteora for a tour of the cliff-top monasteries to visit two different BYZANTINE MONASTERIES* built on top of rock towers and providing fantastic views 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. Meteora is considered one of the most beautiful areas of mainland Greece, and its monasteries are one of the country's most unique attractions.

Upon your return, you may visit an optional factory of Byzantine-style icons. Return to Athens passing by the heroic monument of Leonidas king of Sparta in THERMOPYLAE (short stop for photos). The tour returns to Athens in the late afternoon.

* Normally we visit Great Meteoro Monastery and St. Stefanos. Every Tuesday we visit instead of Great Meteoro, Varlaam monastery.
