"Meteora, a monument characterized as one of the “Treasures of the World” by UNESCO and enlisted in its World Heritage List, is a must while your visit in Greece. Do not miss this top pick tour to a breathtaking ongoing geological phenomenon which one should see for himself to believe!

It all started approx. 60 million years ago and since approx. 12th century AD  the rocks have been exploited by the monks of Holy Mount Athos and built monasteries on top of each rock pillar.  Each of the monasteries owns a vast richness of frescoes and icons and is admirable for its history and architecture, museums that contain a wide array of relics and ecclesiastical treasures. Our guide will guide you through two of the most important and most well preserved of the total six monasteries of the complex.

After a lunch break in the beautiful village of Kalambaka located at the foothills  of the rock formations,  we return back to the meeting points of our excursion.
