Meteora Tour

Get one step closer to God & the Heavens in a two days Meteora tour!

We begin the trip from Athens by driving on the central highway which once was the river Kifissos cutting Athens in half that takes us past coastal villages, tunnels, mountain lakes & the plains of Thebes.

Then we drive for a couple of hours past the valley of Thessaly until we get to the mountains where the monasteries are located.

There are 6 active monasteries. The Great Meteoron, Varlaam, St. Barbara, St. Nicholas, Holy Trinity  known for the James Bond movie "For Your Eyes Only" a rather difficult one with many steps, St. Stephen  & another one built in a cave. We can visit St. Stephen monastery in the afternoon.

Spent the night in a boutique hotel near the Monasteries.

On the way back to Athens we stop at the site of Thermopylae  known for the heroic 300 Spartans & King Leonidas who defended this strategic passage to Athens the year 480 BC.
