Enjoy breakfast, then journey to Meteora. This UNESCO site boasts over 20 rock monasteries, nestled atop towering sandstone cliffs or within natural caves. Initially inhabited by 11th-century hermits, the monasteries provided refuge for monks during the Roman Empire’s decline. Witness breathtaking scenery and invaluable historical and religious artifacts suspended between heaven and earth. Return to Athens in the early evening.

A 30-minute stop allows for a refreshing dip in waters rich with volcanic minerals. Please note: Strong swimming skills are essential to reach Agios Nicholaos’ beach. Our final stop is Thirassia, a charming miniature of Santorini. Spend 2 hours exploring the village and savoring authentic Santorinian cuisine. Opt for a stroll to Manolas, Thirassia’s capital, for a breathtaking view of Santorini. The tour concludes at the new Santorini port (Athinios), where buses will transfer you back to your meeting point.

Enjoy a leisurely morning before heading to the port for your ferry to Piraeus port in Athens. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel to settle in and unwind.
