Itinerary

Hassle-free pick up and drop off from 3 points in Thessaloniki city center

The almost extraterrestrial rocks of Meteora, which embrace Kalambaka city, are a listed and protected Monument of Humanity by UNESCO and the largest monastic state of Greece, after Mount Athos. Meteora is a geological miracle, which one must see for himself in order to believe. The formation of the "tectonic horns", according to the geologists, was created between the mountains of Koziakas and Antichasia about 30 million years ago, when the sea covering the area began to subside, drifting and bridging rocks into the seabed, which over the years were stabilized. Nowadays, only six monasteries are well preserved. We shall visit 2 of these fabulous monasteries, built high upon the steep rocks. Each monastery owns a vast richness of frescoes and icons.

we will make our lunch break, in Kastraki.

Return to the city of Thessaloniki late in the afternoon.
