Take a day-off from your Pelion vacation to cross Thessaly, the largest agricultural plain in Greece, and marvel at the unique geological phenomenon of the Meteora rocks, which has been home to Christian hermits and monks since the 12th century AD. Meteora is a World Heritage Site that fascinates every visitor regardless of their religion and cultural background.
During our day-trip we will visit two monasteries with Christian Orthodox churches decorated with wall paintings of unparalleled beauty. You will be provided a guided tour inside the monasteries and their churches including the monastery museums. Your guide will explain the history, meaning, and symbolism of the Orthodox religious art and architecture, and the narratives behind the breathtaking paintings.
For our day-trip to Meteora, we collaborate with the best professional drivers in Volos and can arrange for transportation with a sedan, mini-van, or mini-bus. This is a fully narrated tour that can be also customized to fit your interests (e.g. road stops for photographs, lunch stop, etc.). Contact us to discuss the details of your Meteora day-trip!
