Enjoy a Scenic Ride to Meteora

Your adventure begins with a personalized private tour, where an English-speaking driver will accompany you throughout the journey. You'll depart from Athens in luxury Mercedes Benz vehicles. As you make your way, you'll have a short stop at Thermopylae to visit the monument of Leonidas, the heroic King of Sparta, who led a small army of 300 men in a legendary battle against a vast Persian force. Pass through the towns of Lamia, Domokos, and Trikala, immersing yourself in the scenic landscapes of Mainland Greece. Eventually, you'll arrive at the town of Kalambaka and be greeted by the first awe-inspiring view of the imposing rocks of Meteora emerging from the earth.
