    Day 2: Meteora Monasteries & Thermopylae

    Stop At: Meteora, Meteora, Trikala Region, Thessaly
    Enjoy a walk at Meteora, the UNESCO world heritage listed monasteries. Breathtakingly surreal and serenely spiritual, the Metéora monasteries spring forth from a dreamy landscape of rocky megaliths in the plains of the Thessaly Valley. The first hermits came to this far-removed corner of Greece at least as early as the 11th century to withdraw from the world and contemplate divinity. Meteora means "middle of the sky", and with their exalted heights and almost mystical inaccessibility, the Metéora monasteries seem to soar towards heaven and reflect the human striving for holiness. After the fascinating tour of the monasteries, you can enjoy a delightful lunch with Greek traditional dishes in Kastraki village.
    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: Thermopylae, Thermopylae, Phthiotis Region, Central Greece
