Description

Begin your adventure with pickup from Piraeus port or your hotel in Athens at 8 AM am and embark on an incredible journey to the monasteries of Meteora, one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world.  Make your first stop at The Holy Monastery of Great Meteoro, the largest and oldest formation on the site, breathtakingly suspended in the air. Make a second stop at the Monastery of St. Stephen, a small church built in the 16th century. This fascinating structure rests on a plain rather than a cliff and was damaged during World War II before nuns took over the site and reconstructed it. Admire the treasures of Byzantine at the museum inside the monastery. Finish this mesmerizing day trip at the picturesque villages of Kalambaka, where you can treat yourself to a delicious traditional Greek lunch. On your way back to Athens, make a short stop at Thermopylae and the Statue of King Leonidas, dedicated to the great battle that took place in 480 BC. Get dropped off back at your hotel at around 8:30 PM.
