Visit Meteora - these gigantic rocks have been etched by time into a variety of shapes; grey stalagmites rising towards the sky, they appear as nature's gift to the pious who, driven by faith, opted for solitude and a life of worship. The monasteries with their wooden galleries crown the summits of these formidable pinnacles. Precariously hanging over the sinister abyss these hermitages form one of the most truly breathtaking sights on earth. All contain priceless historical and religious treasures. Return to Athens via Trikala, Lamia, Thermopylae and Kamena Vourla, arriving into Athens early evening.
