Delphi(site only) & Meteora - 3 days / 2 nights tour
This is a unique tour, allowing you to explore Meteora
Organized on Wednesdays, between April to October .

Single, double or triple bedroom accommodation in 3 star hotel, with dinner & breakfast.
1st DAY: Depart at 08.45 am from Athens and driving through stunning rural scenery via THEBES (the town of the legendary Oedipus), LEVADIA (short stop) and ARACHOVA, we 'll arrive in DELPHI around 11.30am. DELPHI, situated on a mountain terrace encircled by the rugged Mt. Parnassus, was considered the centre of the universe.
Here with the professional tour guide you 'll explore
the legendary site of the Oracle and the sanctuary of god Apollo.

13.30 break up for lunch, and at 15.00 proceed through the towns of AMPHISSA, LAMIA and TRIKALA. Arrive in Kalampaka, at +/- 19.00. Dinner & Overnight.

2nd DAY: The huge rocks of Meteora were formed millions of years ago, a mixture of sandstone, pebbles and hard gravel. These mountain pillars are extraordinary, with horizontal stripes and strange shapes, reaching 600 m tall. The art of Nature; a rocky forest. Meteora have 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.
What makes them even more remarkable are the exquisite monasteries, built by hermits during the 9th c. AD, at the pinnacles of the rocks. For centuries these towers of sandstone provided cliff-top retreats for the monks.
Today you are free to explore the area of Meteora. Start in the morning hiking on the path towards Holy Trinity and St. Stephen. When you get up there, sit at the edge of one of the rocks, and let your mind travel million years back. Imagine that you wet your foot in the water of a big lake. A lake covering the whole 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.
Follow the same path for your return or walk on the asphalt road back to Kalampaka. Relax in one of the cafeterias and when you recover walk to Kastraki and find the skete of Bandovas. Here is where everything started. You will see the hermitages, the original cloisters and beautiful monasteries built inside the caves.
You haven't finished yet. Walk in the old town of Kalampaka and find the old Byzantine church. It's the most important monument of Kalampaka. Return to the hotel, dinner, and overnight.

3rd DAY: After breakfast, meet the group and on board the bus this time, drive to the METEORA and visit The Grand Meteoro and the Varlaam monastery. After lunch you say farewell to mystical Meteora and start our return to ATHENS stopping at THERMOPYLAE, the area where the Spartan king LEONIDAS and his 300 soldiers fought the Persians in 480 BC. Arrive in Athens, +/- 19.00.
