Why we chose this tour

Our Meteora and Delphi 3 Day Tour From Athens by Train takes away the pain of planning and gives you the opportunity to dive fully into the rich past of this storied region. Let our guide lead you along the paths of ancient mystics and holy men while you drink in the breathtaking vistas. Meteora is a monastic community that lived in the the natural and man-made caves in the hills, and was founded in the 10th century. Delphi was a sanctuary built around the oracle who practiced there, and the site is scattered with the remains of temples and sanctuaries. Both sites are recognized as UNESCO world heritage sites, and shouldn't be missed!


Our Meteora and Delphi 3 Day Tour from Athens by train is available every day, so what are you waiting for? This tour begins with a train that offers striking views of the landscape as you journey from Athens to Kalambaka. Your first evening will take you on a sunset tour of the caves of Meteora, a monastic community that lived and thrived in the rocks surrounding them, and ends with a stunning view of the surrounding land bathed in the soft light of the setting sun.

Your next two days are a whirlwind of ancient legends and stories figures, from the Oracle of Delphi to Saint George, as your guide walks you back through the past and into the present. Enjoy your free second evening, and take the time to marvel at the the craggy landscape from a new point of view before heading back up. After your jaunt to ancient Greece, return to Athens to rejoin modern civilization.
