Gasp for glory at the Acropolis

Walk among the pillars of the Parthenon
The Parthenon to this day remains an enigmatic marvel of ancient architecture. The site was originally built at the coming of Christianity to Greece, and serves as a dedication to Parthenos Maria, the Virgin Mary.
Contemplate the Meteora monasteries
Still in use to this day, the Meteora monasteries are seen as both an icon of landscape and natural appreciation, and as an ark for a Christian Orthodox pilgrimage.
Tours of the Meteora monasteries start at $321 per person, on Tempo Holidays’ two-day Meteora Monasteries tour.
The two-day tour also includes a short stop to see the Leonidas monument – a bronze statue erected at Thermopylae in 1955 for Leonidas, the King of Sparta.
Perfect for those with limited time, this tour combines the sensational scenery of central Greece with the monasteries of Meteora.
Admire the ruins of the oracle at Delphi
Regarded as the centre of the world in Ancient Greece, the Pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi was for many centuries the cultural, religious centre and symbol of unity for the Hellenic world.
