    Day 1 - Delphi

    The Multi Day Tour of Delphi & Meteora begins in Athens. After reaching the central highway Kifisos, which is named after one of the three rivers that flow through the city and leads out of the city suburbs to the north. This smooth drive on the highway lasts approximately 2,5-hours and takes the visitors through the plains of North Athens suburban areas, around the city of Thebes, past Levadia and to the slopes of mount Parnassus. Expect to see different landscapes, agricultural life and farming areas.

    A short stop in a coffee shop at the base of mount Parnassus to rest and the drive continues on the windy but comfortable highway over the scenic landscape that leads to the top of mount Parnassus where we drive through the stone village Arachova, which is built on the slope of the mountain and overlooks the valley of Pleistos. This is a popular destination for summer visitors of Delphi and for winter skiers for the 3rd biggest ski center of Greece on top of mount Parnassus. Driving through and away from Arachova for about 10 minutes the tour reaches it’s destination.

    The site of Delphi popular for the Temple of Apollo, The Oracle and the Pythian Panhellenic Games. This archaeological site & museum recommended visit duration is 2,5 to 3 hours. While walking on the sacred way, expect to see the old treasuries of the Greek city-states, the ruins of the Temple of Apollo where the Oracle was located, the intact Amphitheater of Delphi, the Polygonal Wall of the old Athenian forum, the circular Temple of Athena Pronea, the Stadium and the Gymnasium where adults and children where training strength and spirit for the Pythian Games.

    Later the travelers have the option for trying an authentic traditional lunch in a local taverna that offers a magnificent view over the whole valley of Pleistos with thousand of acres of olive trees and the city of Itea on the Corinthian Gulf.

    Exiting Delphi the drive takes you over the sierras of Paranasus and Giona heading towards the east side for mainland Greece, along the Euboean and Maliakos Gulfs towards the final destination for the day in Kalambaka for approximately 2,5 hours.

    Kalambaka rests around the pinnacles of Meteora. Before resting for the day the travelers may visit one of the easiest accessible monasteries and enjoy a breathtaking sunset.

    Day 2 - Meteora, Thermopylae

    The day starts by driving to the top of Meteora and start visiting the monasteries before the big groups arrive. The monasteries are 6 in total and some of them are closed for maintenance during the week but all stay open on weekends. The average visit time for each monastery is 30 minutes for the easiest accessible to 60 minutes for the hardest. The monasteries are St. Nicolas, Varlaam, Grand Meteoron, St. Stephan, Rousanou, Trinity.

    Around the middle of the day the drive back to Athens begins with a final stop in Thermopyalae. 2 hours are needed before reaching Thermopylae. The average visit time is 30-60 minutes and expect to see a museum which is completely interactive and equipped with 3D movies showrooms and touch screens in which you can learn every single detail about the Greco-Persian wars of 496 and 486 B.C., the monument of the legendary Spartan King Leonidas, the monument of the Tespians who fought along side with the Spartans, the battlefield and the Hill of Kolonos on which the Spartans made their last stand to meet their death.
