Winter in Athens - Meteora - Santorini

Duration: 8 days / 7 nights
per person in double room 1000

This package includes some of the most exquisite and famous earth formations of the world. Your journey starts with a visit to the modern metropolis of Athens, including the world-wide known sites of Acropolis and Parthenon and much more! The tour continues with a mystical place, Delphi. The story behind the importance of Delphi in antiquity lies in mythology, according to which the father of gods, Zeus, let loose two eagles, one at the East end of the known until then earth and one at the West. Where they collided and fell to the ground, Zeus marked as the center of the ancient world with a sacred stone, "the navel of the earth" which can be found at Delphi. What comes next is the awe-inspiring landscape of Meteora. Huge rock formations that seem to have been created by an unearthly power, with ageless monasteries perched on almost inaccessible picks that compose a unique experience. Last but certainly not least, your journey ends with a must stop of Cyclades, the crescent-shaped volcanic land of Santorini. Sugar cube villages tumble down mountain slopes and spill into the sea. An island with colorful houses of unique architecture and vineyards perched in volcanic cliffs, producing some of the world’s most fine wines. Amazing scenery and beautiful color contrasts along with the cosmopolitan aspect of this itinerary will give a unique touch to your visit.
