Meteora Full Day Private Trip from Athens

12 reviews
Enjoy a private trip by luxury car or minivan to Meteora, the UNESCO world heritage listed monasteries. Meteora means "middle of the sky", and with their exalted heights and almost mystical inaccessibility, the Metéora monasteries seem to soar towards heaven and reflect the human striving for holiness. After the fascinating tour of the 3 most accessible monasteries, you can enjoy a delightful lunch with Greek traditional dishes and “Mezedes” in the picturesque Kastraki village. On your way back to Athens, stop at Thermopylae, where one of most epic battles of all times took place. 300 Spartans faced the Persian army and stopped them for 2 days. See the battlefield and the statue of King Leonidas.<br><br>See all 6 Unesco world heritage listed monasteries <br>Climb the extraordinary rock formations<br>Visit up to 3 monasteries to get a glimpse of Hermits’ life<br>Have a traditional Greek lunch in a picturesque village<br>Marvel the battlefield of the legendary Thermopylae and King Leonidas statue.

En route to Meteora from Athens this morning our driver pointed out the Leonidas Monument which we briefly stopped to see. It certainly was worth a brief stop which suited our purposes but there is a Museum nearby for anyone wanting to find out more details about this important Spartan victory.

I had always wanted to see this and didn't think I would on this trip to Greece but our tour director surprised us with a quick stop. I was really excited to see the place I had read so much about.

It's a shame that the Greeks don't honor one of their greatest leaders in a more appropriate manner. The signs to the monument are really bad, and the navigation apps don't do a very good job either. All over Greece exposed electrical wires are a photographer's nightmare, but here the wires really ruin the view of the monument. The monument itself is quite impressive, but the important thing is visiting one of the most important battlegrounds in European & western history, and appreciating the sacrifice of those who helped stop the Persian invasion

The statue is pretty neat but be sure to cross the street and go up the hill the Spartans all died on. There is a remembrance plaque there for all those that died in the battle. Take a look around and take it in.
