Day 1: Delphi
After pickup at your hotel, cruise ship or Airport by your private & informative tour driver, sit back & relax as you head north passing through beautiful countryside before arriving at the Delphi archaeological site. You take all the time you need to tour the Castalian Spring, ancient sanctuary of Apollo, the treasury of the Athenians, the ancient stadium, ancient theater and impressive museum with its many artifacts from as far back as the 15th century BC, including highlights such as the Naxian Sphinx, statue of Antinoos and the bronze sculpture of a charioteer. After ample time to enjoy the site and reflect on its significance, you'll then visit the pretty mountain village of Arachova perched at 3,116 feet (950 meters) on the south slopes of Mount Parnassus & a perfect place for lunch before your transfer along the Aegean coast to Meteora.
Day 2: Meteora
Built on a natural formation of sandstone rock pillars up to 1,312 feet high, the six remaining monasteries date from the 14th century and form a remarkable and awe-inspiring combination of nature and spiritual significance. After breakfast you'll take the short drive to visit two of the most outstanding monasteries, normally the Grand Meteora Monastery, Varlaam or Agiou Stefanou, and learn about their long history and the hermits and monks that lived there as you enjoy the majestic landscape views. After taking the time you need we then continue for around 90 minutes to the site of Thermopylae, stopping to see the monument and enter the newly built Visitors Center which recreates the ancient battle where King Leonidas led the 300 Spartans in 480 BC. After pausing for lunch by the sea in one of the many local villages we finally continue to return you to your hotel in Athens with the memories and images from these wonderful experiences.
Your considerate & knowledgeable tour driver will inform you along the way about all the places visited. For those wanting accompanied guiding inside any of the sites, tried & trusted Private Licensed guides are available on request.
