Full description
Begin your tour by crossing to the mainland with the local ferry. From there you will head towards Meteora for a tour of some of the most spectacular Orthodox monasteries. After crossing the mountainous area of Epirus, you can experience nature’s grandeur as you learn about Meteora's history, architecture, and man’s everlasting desire to connect with the divine. From early Christian times, the vertical cliffs of Meteora were regarded as the perfect place to achieve absolute isolation, to discover peace and harmony, and thus, to support man’s eternal struggle for spiritual elevation. Meteora is a truly inspiring and sensational setting of overwhelming rock formations, but this trip is much more than merely a visit to an exquisite landscape. It is a pilgrimage to a holy place for all Christians around the world. The most interesting summits are decorated with historical monasteries, included in UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Only 6 of them have made it through the centuries, from an initial estimated number of 24. Mostly back between the 14th and the 16th century, these monasteries were built by monks who were previously hermits in the area, living in individual caves. Whilst there you will visit two of the monasteries, even if your interests are not deeply religious, to immerse yourself in the feelings of spirituality that this area exudes. You will later, stop in Kalambaka for lunch and some free time, before returning to Corfu at around 8:00PM.
