    What to Expect
    1st Day:

    This tour is a way to see two main sites representing different parts of Greek history. Setting off with a drive along the national highway heading towards northern Greece and coming across the plane of Thieves and the city of Levadia. Soon after we will be on the slopes of Mount Parnassus before reaching the mythical Delphi. Our first stop is going to be a small, mountainous village, very close to a ski resort, made up of traditional houses and shops selling locally produced products. Walking through the village with its narrow, country streets and shops on the central street you will have a breathtaking view of the mountains full of olive trees literally in front of you.Meteora View

    After spending some time in this area of serenity we will drive to the ancient site of Delphi, a famous sanctuary with a PanHellenic character dedicated to Apollo. It served as an oracle and was considered ‘the naval’ the center of the world. Today Delphi is a symbol of Greek cultural unity. The scenic location allows you to have a soothing view of the Greek mountains and two more interesting sites, the Gymnasium and the secondary sanctuary of Athena Pronea. Meanwhile, at the site, you will visit the temple of Apollo where Pythia spoke to the oracles, the theater, and the stadium. While in the museum you will be able to see the famous charioteer and Gold Ivory statues. Leaving the site we will have lunch at the modern village of Delphi with a peaceful view of the mountains of Fokis. Before setting off we will stop at the point well known for its great view, you will see the Corinthian Sea, the port of Itea and the valley full of olive trees (olive sea). Following we will continue with a drive to reach Kalabaka, a beautiful small city that is dominated by the Meteora. You will have time to take an evening walk and enjoy a local dinner after settling at the hotel.

    2nd Day:

    On the following day, we’ll start in the morning for a visit to the monasteries and a closer look at the holy rocks. On the rocks that are like suspended in the air (that’s what Meteora means) there is one of the largest and most important complexes of Eastern Orthodox Monasteries still in use. 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 Kalabaka we will start heading towards Athens and to our last stop. On our way back we will meet the battlefield of Thermopylae. In the historical center of the site, you will enjoy a 3D movie, traveling through time you will feel the presence of all who died for their freedom under a foreign conqueror. To complete the visit you will see the statue of Leonidas standing right opposite Kolonos Hill where the persisting Spartans left their last breath. And after that, we will drive back to Athens.
