START / FINISH - Athens
Activity code: ATH11
Duration: 2 Days/1 night
These two sites are not only stunningly beautiful, they also have a wealth of history attached to them. The ancient Greeks believed that Delphi was the centre of the universe. This sanctuary, dedicated to Apollo, attracted pilgrims in droves - they all came to consult the priestess of Apollo on private matters or matters of state. Delphi sits between two towering peaks of Mount Parnassus with extensive views to the valley below.
Meteora is the site of many monasteries, perched high on granite rocks. These religious houses were built in such an inaccessible place to be safe from attack, but also because the monks felt closer to God. Supplies (and often animals) had to be winched up in a basket from the ground!
