IGOUMENITSA - The Meteora
Full-day Excursion: The Meteora (approximately 5 hours of round-trip travel – lunch is included).
Discover one of the most spectacular sites in Greece. Although the original town of Kalambaka was destroyed during World War II, the Meteora monasteries remained intact on the summit of the rocks. The caves in the rocks were inhabited by hermit monks in the 9th century AD. They began to build monasteries in the 11th century, and at its peak in the 16th century, there were 24. Today, there are now six functioning monasteries still inhabited by either nuns or monks.
Our ship will cruise to Itea overnight.
We’ll spend the morning cruising.
The afternoon will be dedicated to an excursion on a tour of Delphi, a sacred site said to have been founded by Zeus. In ancient Greece, thousands upon thousands of pilgrims flocked here to hear the Oracle give her predictions. While taking in the ruins of the ancient site overlooking the superb red sandstone landscape, you’ll understand why Delphi was once thought to be the center of the world.
Tonight is our festive gala evening.
Corinth Canal - ATHENS
