Day 1

We depart from Athens in the morning and follow the coastal National Highway.  Before we arrive in Delphi, we drive through the picturesque village of Arachova.  Begin your tour of Delphi, the cultural and religious center of Greece, also known in the ancient years as the “Navel of Earth.”  You will have the opportunity to visit the Sanctuary of Delphi (4th century BC).   Here is where according to mythology, the priestess Pythia was believed to deliver oracles to humans while the priests of Apollo translated her prophecies.  Visit the Temple dedicated to Apollo, the Castallian Spring, the Treasury of the Athenians, the Archaeological Museum and Ancient Stadium that hosted the Pythian Games.

During the duration of this trip, we stop for lunch at a traditional tavern of Delphi.  As we spend the night in Delphi, you will have free time in the evening.

Day 2
Following breakfast, we depart from Delphi for a journey through Central Greece.  Enjoy a drive through the city of Lamia and Trikala, before crossing the Thessalian plain to Kalabaka, a small town built at the foot of the majestic Meteora, crowned by the extraordinary monasteries that bare its name, providing for one of the country’s most unique attractions.  We spend the night in Kalabaka.

Day 3
In the morning, your driver will take you to the Meteora Monasteries, characterized by UNESCO as a unique phenomenon of cultural heritage.  The second most important monastic site in Orthodox Christianity where you will feel the natural beauty of the landscape combined with the historical and spiritual context of the area.  Admire ageless Monasteries containing historical and religious treasures.  In a region of almost inaccessible sandstone peaks, monasteries were built by monks who were previously hermits in the area and who settled on these “columns of the sky” from the 11th century onwards.  You will have the opportunity to visit 2 or 3 of these monasteries.  Even if your interests are not deeply religious, this is a truly unique and inspiring experience not to be missed!

Following, we stop for lunch at a traditional tavern in Kalabaka.

Early afternoon we begin our return trip towards Athens.  On the way, stop briefly at Thermopylae to see the heroic monument of Leonidas, King of Sparta.
