Itinerary

01

Athens to Delphi to Kalambaka

Get excited, it’s time to begin a jam-packed 2-day adventure exploring some of the most magical sites in Greece! Meet your guide bright and early at the hostel’s reception, and hop aboard the private coach with your fellow Busabouters. Around mid-morning we’ll arrive at our first stop, the heart of the ancient Greek world, Delphi! With our included local guide, we’ll walk along the sacred way to the Temple of Apollo, visit the Castalian springs and marvel at the Temple of Pronea at the valley of Delphi. Head into the museum to further bring to life your ancient surroundings - entrance is included! You’ll then have some time to grab lunch before we hop back on the coach and journey further north to Kalambaka. Along the way your guide will tell more tales of crazy mythology, legacy and the battles of ancient Greece. This evening we’ll arrive in Kalambaka just in time to head out for an included dinner with your new Busabout buddies at a local taverna. Cheers to an epic first day of exploring, and enjoy the anticipation of tomorrow’s spectacle once the sun rises over the magical landscape – yamas! - Dinner included

02

Kalambaka to Athens

Rise and shine, we have another exciting day of adventure ahead. Fill up on breakfast before we meet our local guide and board the coach, as we head for the magical cliff-top monasteries of Meteora! Our guide will tell us the myths and history about this unique and enchanting landscape, as we visit two of the most important monasteries perched high on top of incredible rocky formations, famous for their Byzantine frescoes and spectacular views. We’ll make the most of the spectacular surroundings by finishing with an hour-long guided scenic hike (bring appropriate footwear!), descending from Meteora back to Kalambaka. After working up an appetite you’ll have some free time for a well-deserved lunch in Kalambaka, before we drive south to our next stop in Thermopylae. Here, the statue of Leonidas stands to commemorate the heroic defence of the Spartans against the Persians - it looks a little different nowadays than what is shown in the movie “300”! Then it’s time to return to Athens and say our farewells. We hope you’ve had an amazing time! - Breakfast included
