Take this Delphi & Meteora Two Days Tour from Athens and enjoy a majestic trip.

Begin with pick up from Athens and board your luxury air conditioned bus with your professional guide.

Visit the Delphi archeological site where the temple of Apollo was considered as ‘the navel of the wold’ in ancient Greece, a site that has played an extremely important role at the evolution and political situation of ancient Athens and the rest of Greece.

We also visit the impressive Meteora. Meaning “suspended in air” the name Meteora soon came to encompass the entire rock community of monasteries, the biggest and most important group of monasteries in Greece after those in Mount Athos. The rock monasteries have been characterized by UNESCO as a unique phenomenon of cultural heritage.

Itinerary

Day 1

Leave for Delphi via Thebes, Levadia and the picturesque village of Arachova, on the slopes of Mount Parnassus, arrive in Delphi and visit the Archaeological Site.

Delphi was considered the center of the earth and the universe, and played a central role in the classical Greek world. Proceed though the sacred way to the Athenian treasury, the stoa of Athens, the temple of Apollo, where the oracle was and the theater.

After the visit, we depart through Central Greece and the cities of Lamia, Trikala crossing the Thessalian plain, to Kalambaka, a small town built at the foot of the majestic grey rocks, and crowded by the Meteora Monasteries.

Dinner and overnight stay in Kalambaka.

Day 2

Savor breakfast in your hotel and then travel for nearby UNESCO-listed Meteora for a tour of the cliff-top monasteries.

Visit Meteora and enjoy a unique and most impressive scenery with ageless Monasteries, containing priceless historical and religious treasures, standing between earth and sky atop huge rocks. Meteora is considered one of the most beautiful and inspiring area of mainland Greece, and its monasteries are one of the country’s most unique attractions.

The monasteries are perched on top of towers of sandstone, which for centuries provided totally inaccessible retreats for the monks.  It is also the biggest and most important group of monasteries in Greece after those in Mount Athos.

In the past there were no steps and the main access to the monasteries was by means of a net that was hitched over a hook and hoisted up by rope and a hand cranked windlass to winch towers overhanging the chasm. Monks descended in the nets or on retractable wooden ladders up to 40m long to the fertile valleys below to grow grapes, corn and potatoes. Each community developed its own resources and by the end of the 14th century, the Grand Meteoron emerged as the dominant community. The rock monasteries have been characterized by UNESCO as a unique phenomenon of cultural heritage.

You will enjoy a guided tour of two of the six monasteries. Then you will start your drive back to Athens. On the way you will stop to visit the monument of Leonidas where the 300 Spartans fought against the Persian army at Thermopylae (Hot Gates) – short stop to see across the road the Leonida’s Monument.

Continuing our journey, we arrive in Athens early in the evening.

Felt a bit too fast. Would recommend getting a 3 day minimum for this kind of trip, since we spent all the time driving. The guide was awesome and our driver was the best

The tour was a nice one as expected. However, there was many bus changes on the first
day, and some guide’s English is not one of the best; however, we were fine as far as
carefully listen to the person. Except for those, everything was good as expected.

Os locais são únicos e imperdíveis. O Templo de Apolo impressiona pela localização e energia do local. Meteora sempre foi um sonho conhecer e tanto a natureza das montanhas como a superação dos religiosos tornam um local mágico. Os pontos ruins da excursão seriam os restaurantes com refeições medianas com preços acima da média ( um café 4€) e na ida pararam 6 ônibus ao mesmo tempo. Mais de 1h a espera. Outro fator destoante foi a pronúncia da guia com um inglês muito greho de se compreender. Em vários momentos eu pus-me a traduzir para outros turistas, principalmente americanos. Foi a reclamação geral. Dava preguiça de tentar entender.

Meteora is a place like no other and really should be seen. It is Astounding. Delphi is also unique and Historical. We should be told more details when signing up for this tour, though. I had no idea I would be on a bus for five hours; mapping it beforehand didn’t tell us this. We should know in advance the actual itinerary–are we seeing Delphi first or second and in which town are we staying the night and will the monasteries require wearing skirts (sexist)? This is a LONG journey and people should be prepared. Also, the tour guides speak about Greek myths as if they are fact and do not provide interesting information. The closest return point to where we needed to be in Athens was literally on the side of the road, with our luggage and then we had to walk half a mile to our meeting spot. If we were not fit, we wouldn’t have been able to manage. Good value but do provide more details in the future.

Wonderful day tour. Our driver Panos was very professional and friendly. He provided additional history of the area and we were able to see all the sites at a nice pace without feeling rushed. The lunch stop in Nafplio was delicious in a lovely location.
Overall the tour was excellent.
