You will greeted at your hotel, airport, port and will make your way to the most authentic and famous places in Greece in one day. Enjoy the scenic drive on the Greek countryside and after 5hrs arrive at the magnificent land of Meteora.

 

The UNESCO World Heritage site is home to more than 20 rock monasteries, either perched precariously on top of Meteora’s towering sandstone cliffs or built into the cliffs themselves inside naturally formed caves. With your guide*, visit two of the incredible monasteries and hear fun facts and trivia about the monks who once called them homes. Originally lived in by 11th-century hermits, the monasteries later became safe havens for monks fleeing bloodshed when the Roman Empire began to fall.

The two monasteries you may visit are subject to change but typically include Grand Meteora Monastery, Moni Varlaam or Moni Agiou Stefanou. Meteora combines natural beauty and cultural heritage- a fact that makes them a unique destination between the world’s monuments. Moving on after having our lunch at Kalambaka we will start heading towards Athens. 


The full route lasts around five hrs, so enjoy a stop in the town of Thermopylae, to complete the visit you will see the statue of Leonidas standing right opposite Kolonos Hill where the persisting Spartans left their last breath.

Travel onward to the Greek capital, and finish your day tour with a drop-off at the start point (your hotel or central Athens).
