Delphi to Meteora

GENERAL INFO

If all you have is just two days and you are trying to decide where to go before you head to the islands, this tour combines two of the most famous landmarks of Greece, Delphi and Meteora.
Our trip starts from Athens, and on the way to Delphi the road cuts through some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in Greece, passing traditional villages that are among the country’s loveliest. Delphi has it all: a long and glorious history, spectacular ancient remains, a superb museum and a beautiful location on the slopes of Mount Parnassos.
Our next stop is Meteora, one of the most extraordinary places in the world. A series of sandstone pinnacles, rising about 300m above the plain of Thessaly. It is not surprising that they have been seen as places of religious retreat and the monasteries built by monks six hundred years ago on the top of these rocks, create a unique synthesis of nature and man.

DAILY ITINERARY

We depart early from Athens and we will drive towards the archeological site of Delphi. The pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi, where the oracle of Apollo spoke, was the site of the omphalos, the “navel of the earth. Blending harmoniously with the superb landscape and charged with sacred meaning, Delphi in the 6th century B.C. was indeed the religious center and symbol of unity of the ancient Greek world. Alongside with your guide you will explore the archeological site and the archeological museum, which is one of the most important in Greece.
After lunch, we will depart from Delphi in the direction of Meteora and you are not likely to forget the first moment the rock pinnacles come into view.

We will start from the village of Kastraki, which lies at the bottom of the rocks and hike up for a visit in the monasteries.
