4th DAY:

Today we will see one of the most amazing places in Greece – METEORA, meaning ‘suspended in air’. There were no steps and the main access to the monasteries was by means of a net that was hitched over a hook and hoisted up by rope and a hand cranked windlass to winch towers overhanging the chasm.

Monks descended in the nets or on retractable wooden ladders up to 40m long to the fertile valleys below to grow grapes, corn and potatoes. Each community developed its own resources and by the end of the 14th century, the Grand Meteoron emerged as the dominant community. After visits start the drive back to ATHENS passing through THERMOPYLAE (Photo Stop) & KAMMENA VOURLA.
