What to Expect
Discover the “navel of the earth” on a 3-day tour of Central Greece, and go to the ruins of the sanctuary to the oracle at Delphi. Then, continue through the spectacular Thelassy Plains to the smooth-rock formations of Meteora. Marvel at the monasteries and caves nestled among the rocks, and experience a slice of Ancient Greek civilization.

Day 1: Athens - Delphi
Depart Athens and drive to Delphi through the mountains of Livadia and Arachova. Upon arrival at the archaeological site and museum of Delphi, learn more about the “nave of the world.” Go to the Delphi Museum to discover a treasure trove of artifacts, including the life-size Bronze Charioteer that commemorates a victory in the Pythian Games of 478 or 474 BC. Marvel at the statues of Antinoos, and the athlete Aghias. Imagine what life was like at the site, before strolling around the ancient sanctuary and ruins of the opals (navel) of the ancient world. Enjoy the rest of the day at leisure at your accommodation in Delphi.

Day 2: Delphi - Meteora
Enjoy a morning at leisure in Delphi. Then, drive across the spectacular Thessaly Plains to the Meteora region of central Greece. Pass through the towns of Amphissa, Lamia, and Trikala on route to Kalambaka, where you will spend the night. Marvel at magnificent cliff-side castles, such as the Castle of Amphissa, along with Lamia Castle, age-old olive trees, and whitewashed houses. Kalambaka is dramatically situated at the foot of the Meteora peaks, and surrounded by imposing rocks.

Day 3: Meteora - Athens
Spend the day touring the monasteries set among the imposing smooth rock pinnacles of Meteora. Discover cave chapels and hollow cavities in the science fiction-like landscape. Marvel at the dramatic views across the landscape, and learn more about the monks who settled in this eerie atmosphere. Then, drive back to Athens, stopping briefly at Thermopylae and Kamena Vourla along the way.
