🏁 Tour Itinerary: 5 Day Athens, Meteora and Delphi Exploration Trip

Day 1: Athens

The first day of your engaging trip will help you uncover Athens’ treasures! Admire the incredible monuments of the Acropolis Hill, such as the famous Parthenon, the Temple of Nike, the Propylaea, and the sacred Erechtheion, before walking the short distance to the Acropolis Museum, where you will have the opportunity to delight in exhibits and artifacts nearly 3.000 years old.
Explore Plaka, snap as many pictures as you can in this picturesque island-like neighborhood in the heart of Athens, and learn about the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates that lies in its premises! Following a much-needed break, hop on your luxury vehicle to bass by Athens’ most important landmarks, including the Library of Hadrian, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the multicolored Monastiraki, with its vivid flea market, and the emblematic Syntagma Square. A day packed full of fun is waiting for you!

 

Day 2 – 3: Meteora

Time to experience a truly unique UNESCO Heritage site, the stunning Meteora rock pinnacles, home to exceptional Orthodox monasteries. Board the morning train to Kalabaka and enjoy a scenic trip through the Greek countryside. As soon as you arrive at Meteora train station, meet with your expert local guide and embark on a Meteora tour! Across 5 hours, take in the mystical landscape of the region from the comfort of your vehicle and learn the history behind each nook and crevice of the city. Stop on the top viewpoints of Meteora, visit the caves of Badovas, and go inside 3 Meteora Monasteries.
The next day, indulge in scrumptious local delicacies on a private food and wine tour that will last from morning till afternoon! Take a walk around Kalambaka and a picturesque drive through the villages around Meteora. Taste luscious local wines, homemade sausages, and top-quality meat, local cheese, yogurt, honey, homemade sweets, and tsipouro. The delicious food, however, is not the only experience you’re going to get: you’ll have the exceptional opportunity to enter the only ancient hermitage accessible to the public in the area, the hermitage of St Theodosius. Take advantage of your free evening to wander through Kalabaka in search of local delicatessens, the Museum of Mushrooms, or just a refreshing drink.

 

Day 4: Delphi

Today is the day to experience the mystifying vibe of Delphi, where prophets used to chew bay leaves to foresee the future and mythical gods ruled from the high mountains. Your driver will take a most interesting detour to Pavliani, a traditional village that harmoniously sits amidst a forest of the plane, maple, chestnut, and walnut trees! In the afternoon, you will discover the core of mythical and spiritual ancient Greece with a private guided tour around the archaeological site of Delphi and its Museum.
Depending on the time of your travel, you will visit either Galaxidi, which offers iconic sea views and the chance to take a dip in its calm waters, or Arachova, which offers a beautiful mountainscape and busy village for a walk inside its picturesque alleys.

 

Day 5: Hosios Loukas – Return

While it may be the final day of your trip, there is plenty to do before your return to Athens. Not far from Arachova, you will stop at Distomo to visit Hosios Loukas Monastery, one of the most important monuments of Middle Byzantine architecture and art and a UNESCO World Heritage site! Your road trip finishes at your Athens hotel or at Athens International airport. Until next time!

    Xenia was a great guide. We visited all of the sites and went at a good pace. We had lunch at a small restaurant which was nice. Highly recommend this tour.
