We will start the excursion early in the morning ,you will have the
oportunity to visit the famous monasteries. This tour to Meteora offers
the unique experience of nature’s grandeur in conjunction with history,
architecture From the early Christian times, the Meteora vertical cliffs
were regarded as the perfect place to achieve absolute isolation, to
discover peace and harmony and, thus, to support man’s eternal
struggle for spiritual elevation.
Meteora is a truly inspiring and sensational setting of overwhelming rock formations, but one must also
be prepared to expect that this trip is much more than merely visiting an
exquisite landscape. In a region of almost inaccessible sandstone
peaks, monks settled on these ‘columns of the sky’ from the 11th century
These monasteries were built, despite incredible difficulties, at
the time of the great revival of the eremetic ideal in the 15th century.
Their 16th-century frescoes mark a key stage in the development of
post-Byzantine painting. Meteora is included on the Unesco World
You will have time to visit the monasteries and take amazing photos
because the view is imposing, unique and breathtaking . You will have
time for lunch and then we will travel back to Athens having seen one of
the most imposing parts all over the world.
