1st day: Starting from Athens in the morning, we drive through the fertile plain of Beotia through the town of Thebes which is connected with the tragedy of king Oedipus and on to Levadia, a busy town and an important junction in the road network. The town is also an industrial centre, its textile mills treat the cotton grown in the Copais valley. The upper town is graced by white houses with jutting wooden balconies dating from the 18th C. Greece taxi stops for a drink by the beautiful spring of Lethe (oblivion). A passage not far away leads to what is thought to be the spring of Mnemosyne (remembrance).

Visit Castalia Spring and the Sanctuary of Athena Pronaea then in the afternoon the Sanctuary of Apollo Pythios and the Museum.

Meteora Private Tour. Visit the Orthodox Monasteries...View them form all different Angles

2nd day: After breakfast Our Meteora Tour departs for Meteora rocks from the east side of Mount Parnassus, along Heracles road - this is a superb mountain road running between Bralos and Iraklia (21km/13mi about 1 hr) with an impressive landscape and extensive views. The road descends into Lamia, passing through typical towns and numerous picturesque mountain villages of Central Greece. We'll arrive in Meteora which lies North of Kalambaka in the northwest corner of the Thessaly plain, a group of fantastic grey rocks rising up out of the trees in the Pinions Valley. Perched on the top of these huge and precipitous columns of rock, (there are some 60 of these columns of rock, a favorite haunt for climbers) are the famous cenobitic monasteries known as the Meteora which means "in the air" where you can see exquisite specimens of Byzantine Art. Of the 24 monasteries that were built between the 13th and 16th centuries only six are still inhabited:  The Great Meteoron, Agia Triada, Agios Nikolaos and Varlaam by monks: Agios Stephanos and Roussanou by nuns. Stay overnight in the closest village to Meteora with the best view of the giant rocks and monasteries (photo below). GreeceTaxi will take you for photo tour with the sunset
