PRIVATE TOUR

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 you visit Greece. Do not miss this top-pick tour of a breathtaking ongoing geological phenomenon that one should see for himself to believe! It all started approx. 60 million years ago and since approx. 12th century AD the rocks were exploited by the monks of Holy Mount Athos who 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 to the meeting points of our excursion. Did you know Meteora was used as a filming location in the 1981 James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only?

Tip: Do not forget to ask your guide about an ideal photo spot and gastronomic recommendations in Kalambaka!
