DETAILED DESCRIPTION 

DURATION 12 hour

LOCATION Corfu, Greece

Pickup Service

This tour to Meteora offers a unique experience of nature's grandeur in conjunction with history, architecture and man's desire to connect with the divine!

You will be picked up from your hotel early in the morning by a private coach and be driven to Corfu port where you will board a ferry to the mainland town of Igoumenitsa (appoximately 2 hours). After you disembark from the ferry, meet again with your private driver, get back on your air-condtioned coach and enjoy the comfortable journey to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Meteora!

From the minute you arrive at Meteora, we bet that the extraordinary place will leave you speechless: Soaring pillars of rock jut heavenward, a handful complete with monasteries perched on their summits! It is widely considered that these rock pillars were formed approximately 60 million years ago by earthquakes and weathering. Admire the amazing floating monasteries, once home to hermit monks that were looking for isolation, peace and harmony. Originally, there were 24 monasteries but nowadays only 6 of them managed to survive through the years and operate: Great Meteoron Monastery, Varlaam Monastery, St. Stephen's Monastery, St. Nicholas Monastery, Holy Trinity Monastery and Roussanou Monastery. During this tour, you will get the chance to visit two of these monasteries including Great Meteoron- the largest and oldest one.  After the insightful visit to Meteora, you will head to the town of Kalampaka where you will enjoy some free time to explore the city or enjoy lunch at one of the local restaurants!

As an amazing day comes to an end, get back to your private coach and head to Igoumenitsa, where you will board a ferry back to Corfu. Upon you arrival at Corfu port, your tour concludes with a drop off to your hotel.
