|DAY 1: 08.45am, depart from Athens,
taking a 3 hrs scenic drive via the rural towns of
THEBES (town of the legendary Oedipus), LEVADIA (short
stop) and ARACHOVA, to arrive in DELPHI, the site that we call "one of the
"Temple-Banks" of Greece, situated on a mountain terrace, and considered as
"the centre of the universe" at 11.30am.
Here, with the tour guide you will explore the legendary site of the Oracle and the sanctuary of god Apollo.
(N.B. The tour allows you enough time to visit the ancient site ONLY.
However, this is where we get involved and by paying 7.00 euro extra you can visit and spend one hour in the Delphi archaeological museum. Are you interested? We can organize it.)
The group will proceed for lunch, and at +/- 14.45 will depart via AMPHISSA, LAMIA and TRIKALA
for Kalampaka, the town situated below the Meteora.
(An optional but very popular sunrise photo trip: Wake up early in the morning and try to capture a "unique" sunrise. Our taxi driver will pick you up for a SUNRISE trip over the impressive hill-top monasteries. The cost is 20.00 euro per hour, shared between the passengers of the taxi).
DAY 2: 09.00 am. After breakfast drive to the METEORA, and
visit two of the monasteries, open on the day of your visit.
When you first visit it, you don't expect such a beauty. The second time you follow the paths, explore it, and get a strange, sensational feeling.
April - Oct: Choose the Wednesday departure, pay 49.00 euro per
person, stay 1 extra day in a 3 star hotel in Kalambaka,
OF THE METEORA ROCKS
Sit at the edge of one of these massive rocks, and let your mind travel millions of years back, when the big lake covered the whole valley. As a result of a very strong earthquake, the water went into the Aegean Sea, and the lake dried out, recovering all this natural beauty that you see in front of you today. This is the most probable explanation of how all these rocks were formed. You will confront a geological phenomenon which is universally unique, where words like, "admire, unexplainable, impressive" that are said in many writings describe its size, only to a point.
