2nd DAY: Morning at leisure. You may visit the site where the tholos of Athena Pronaia, the gymnasium and sports' training facilities, etc, are located.
After lunch (the meal is not included in the price), drive through the Central Greece towns of AMPHISSA, LAMIA and TRIKALA to arrive in KALAMBAKA at +/- 07.00pm. Overnight. (B.D.)

3rd DAY: The mountain pillars of METEORA are extraordinary. The huge rocks are a mixture of sandstone, pebbles and hard gravel, called conglomerate, reaching 600 m tall, with horizontal stripes and strange shapes. The art of Nature, a rocky forest. They were formed millions of years ago.
What makes them more remarkable are the exquisite monasteries built by hermits during the 9th c. AD, at the pinnacles of the rocks, as if suspended in mid-air.
Meteora has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and since 1995 the Hellenic government declared it a " sacred area", belonging to everybody and protected from any change or interference.
Early in the morning drive to the "unique" site of METEORA and visit two of the monasteries open on the day of your visit.
Sit at the edge of one of the rocks, and let your mind travel million years back and imagine that you wet your foot in the water of a big lake.
A lake covering the whole Thessalian valley. Look at the horizon and imagine the lake drying gradually, recovering all this natural beauty in front of you.
This is the most probable option of how all these were created. You are in front of a geological phenomenon universally unique, where words like admire, unexplainable, impressing which we usually find in many writings can describe it's size only to one point.
After lunch you start your return to ATHENS stopping at THERMOPYLAE, the area where the Spartan king LEONIDAS and his 300 soldiers were killed.
Arrive in Athens, +/- 19.00.
