Overview
Visit Ancient Delphi and Meteora, two legendary UNESCO World Heritage sites, on a 2-day tour from Athens! With an expert guide, explore the archeological site at Delphi on a walking tour and learn about Ancient Greece while seeing the Sanctuary of Apollo and more. Travel through the picturesque towns of the Thessalian plains, and stay overnight in a 3- or 4-star hotel in Kalambaka, gateway to Meteora. The following day, explore two of Meteora’s beguiling cliff-top monasteries before making the journey back to Athens.
Highlights
  • Visit UNESCO-listed Delphi and Meteora in just two days from Athens
  • Travel with ease by comfortable coach and enjoy guided tours at the sites
  • Gain more insight into the ruins and sites than you would independently
  • Great value: 3- or 4-star hotel, two meals, and entry fees included
What to Expect
Visit two of Greece’s UNESCO-protected wonders on this 2-day tour from Athens. On Day 1, depart central Athens and travel to ancient Delphi, once a base of the Delphic oracle and considered the center of the world by ancient Greeks. Take a guided tour of the Temple of Apollo and the ruins on the slopes of Mt. Parnassus, and learn about the site’s history and function. Following a lunch break, continue to Kalambaka and, after an evening at leisure and overnight at a local hotel, spend the next morning exploring UNESCO-listed Meteora, home to six medieval monasteries built on high rock pinnacles. Visit two of the monasteries with a guide to learn why and how they were built before your drive back to Athens, where your tour ends at the original departure point.

Long bus ride but very worthwhile! The allotted time to visit Delphi is ridiculous. We had 15 minutes of free time while I would have needed at least 40 to do the site justice. Tour guide for Delphi had great English. Allotted time for Meteora was fine. Tour guide for Meteora
