Ancient & Byzantine Greece in one tour

Day 1

The tour begins from Athens and passes through central Greece. You will see Thebes, an ancient city of great importance during 350 BC and the myth has it that the citizens were originated by the teeth of a dragon that a king once planted in the earth. Following, you will make a short stop to Levadia, a small Greek town and then to Arachova, the most well-known and visited winter resort in modern Greece. The tour ends in Delphi, known as centre of the world where a kind of prophet “Pythia” advised many kings before an important decision. You will pass by Castalia spring and then to the Museum of Delphi, where you will have the chance to see “The Charioteer of Delphi”, one of the finest examples of ancient bronze statues. Overnight in Delphi.

Day 2

The second day, the morning is free in Delphi in order to explore Delphi and buy souvenirs. In the afternoon you will depart for Meteora. The thing that makes Meteora so special is the monasteries built on the top of imposing rocky hills. The road to Meteora passes by several picturesque towns of central Greece such as Lamia, Trikala and Kalambaka. You will make a short stop in Lamia. Overnight in Kalambaka.

Day 3

The third day is dedicated to visiting the Byzantine monasteries of Meteora. The monasteries are built on the peaks of hills overlooking the area and visitor needs to climb the paths to visit them. The climbing up the stairs will be rewarding since you will have the opportunity to marvel an almost inaccessible region (at the time) where monks settled for the first time in the 11th century.  The way back home gets through the monument of Leonidas ,in Thermopyles. Leonidas , King of Sparta refused the Persians to surrender and died a noble death in this very spot.
