Description: A highlight of your stay in Greece will be a visit to the Meteora monasteries. Meteora is the geological miracle, which must be seen to be believed! Experts believe it all started in the Paleocene age, lasting 30 million years. There are many theories that forward regarding its formation, but most agreed upon one: that the terrain moved and the towers also moved apart leaving one of the most amazing feats of nature seen anywhere on this Earth. Even more amazing is man himself. For on top of the towers and that is the only way to describe these wonders, man built Monasteries. Amazingly it only took 2 years to build one of the Monasteries, as there are old records that testify these facts, but it took 20 years to get all the supplies to the top before this could happen. Six monasteries are preserved; four of them are still inhabited. We shall visit two of the fabulous monasteries, perched high upon the steep rocks. Each monastery possesses a vast richness of frescoes and icons. “If there was one wonder of the world, this is it. No where on this planet will you see the equal of Meteora.” Important notice: for entering the monasteries, appropriate clothing is required. Ladies must not wear short skirts and must have long sleeved shirts.Gentlemen should wear long trouserw.
