DescriptionDay 1: Athens, Delphi, and Kalabaka After meeting your guide bright and early at the Hotel Evripides reception, you will board your private coach and depart Athens. At around mid-morning, you will arrive at your first stop of Delphi, the heart of the ancient Greek world. With your local guide, you will walk along the sacred way to the Temple of Apollo, visit the Castalian Springs, and marvel at the Temple of Pronea at the valley of Delphi. You will then head into the museum to further bring to life your ancient surroundings, with entrance to the museum included. After the museum visit, you will have some time to grab lunch before you return to your coach, and journey further north to Kalabaka. Along the way, your guide will tell more tales of crazy mythology, legacy and the battles of ancient Greece. This evening you will arrive in Kalabaka just in time to head out for dinner at a local 'taverna'. You can toast to an epic first day of exploring, and enjoy the anticipation of tomorrow’s spectacle once the sun rises over the magical landscape. Day 2: Kalabaka to Athens As your second day begins, fill up on breakfast before meeting your local guide and boarding the coach, as you head for the magical cliff-top monasteries of Meteora. Your guide will tell you about the myths and history about this unique and enchanting landscape, as you visit two of the most important monasteries perched high on top of incredible rocky formations, famous for their Byzantine frescoes and spectacular views. You will make the most of the spectacular surroundings by finishing with an hour-long guided scenic hike, descending from Meteora back to Kalabaka. After working up an appetite, you will have some free time for a well-deserved lunch in Kalabaka, before you drive south to your next stop in Thermopylae. Here, the statue of Leonidas stands to commemorate the heroic defense of the Spartans against the Persians. At the end of the day, it will be time to return to Athens to say farewell to your group and guide.
