Start with pickup from your hotel in Thessaloniki at 8:00 AM. Embark on a trip to Meteora which offers a unique experience of nature’s grandeur in conjunction with architecture and religious history. From the early Christian period, the Meteora vertical cliffs were regarded as the perfect place to achieve absolute isolation, to discover peace and harmony. Explore the many monasteries of the area, built atop beautiful and grandiose rock formations. In addition to its natural beauty, the region is a place of particular significance for pilgrims of the Christian faith. The gigantic rocks of Meteora are perched above the town of Kalambaka. The most interesting summits are decorated with historical monasteries, included in the World Heritage List of UNESCO. Only 6 of them have made it through the centuries, from an initial estimated number of 24. Learn about the history of these sites mostly dating back to the 14th century. Learn how the monasteries were built by monks who were previously hermits in the area, living in individual caves. Once united, these monks took months and years to carry the construction material to the top of rocks, using ropes, folding ladders, nets and baskets, and with much determination. After a full day of exploring the various monasteries, be returned to your hotel in Thessaloniki.
