Visit Delphi, the center of the ancient world, the “Omphalos” (“Naval of the earth”) whose prestige extended far beyond the boundaries of the Hellenic Universe and the Meteora monasteries, perched atop soaring cliffs, gigantic rocks which have been etched by time into a variety of shapes rooted deeply in the ground yet complitely isolated from the world around them.
Athens – Delphi – Kalambaka
In the morning, meet our guide at the hotel and depart for a tour to Delphi and Kalambaka. First we will visit the pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi, where the oracle of Apollo spoke and was the site of the omphalos, the ‘naval of the world’. Blending harmoniously with the superb landscape and changes with sacred meaning, Delphi in the 6th century BC, was indeed the religious centre and symbol of unity of the ancient Greek world. While at the site, visit the Treasury of the Athenians, the Temple of Apollo and the Museum. Afterwards, lunch optional will be served at a nearby restaurant. Departure for Kalambaka, a small town stated at the foot of the astonishing complex of Meteora gigantic rocks. Dinner and overnight at the hotel.
