The center is compact and can be easily traversed in an hour or so. Delphi is worth at least a two-night stay to allow for a slow exploration of the Oracle site, and to soak up the still-present mystical atmosphere while watching the sun go down over a panoramic dinner. This sprawling hillside sanctuary is where the High Priestess the Delphic Oracle held court; visitors in antiquity came from far and wide to seek her prophesies.
Read up beforehand to understand what it was all about, and come early to avoid the heat and crowds. Of perhaps lesser interest, but interesting all the same, the former is the site of the spring where ritual purification took place. It is best enjoyed late at night or at sunrise. The museum complements the Sanctuary site with model reconstructions, helpful historical information, and artifacts from the site. Visit the museum first to gain context go early to avoid the crowdsand head to the Sanctuary on the second day.
Unparalleled views out over the valley below.
Breezy comfortable rooms, impressive views, and accompanying Epikouros Restaurant across the street. An in-house restaurant and panoramic terrace make for an all-inclusive package. The only other way in and out is by bus.
The main bus route runs back and forth from Athens, leaving Athens from the Kifissos bus station. Travelers wishing to travel from Delphi to Meteora or Olympia will have to make at least one transfer: For Olympia, take a Patra-bound bus change in Itea on the same ticket. From Pyrgos take a local bus or train to Olympia see Olympia entry. For Meteora, take a bus to Amfissa via Itea and swap for a bus to Lamia.
From Lamia you can either train it from Leianokladi to Kalambaka, or bus it via Trikala. They congregate opposite the bus stop at the eastern edge of the village. Linger and relax with an ouzo on ice by the lakefront, or take a slow boat ride to the Island for a meal of eels, trout, or even frogs legs.
Ioannina has had a checkered past, from its founding in the Byzantine Empire in the 6th century AD, through the Ottomans and a bloodthirsty dictator. Things to Do in Ioannina The Island: The only lake-island in Greece where people live all year round.
It consists of a compact village, a monastery, and a shaded walking path around the island. A passenger ferry boat leaves from the waterfront by the Kastro every 20 minutes. Cobbled streets meander at will, but you will never get lost. No tour boats explore the vast green expanse of Lake Pamvotis, but cyclists can circumnavigate the Lake in about an hour and a half 24 km on quiet rural lanes, a lakeside road, and a dedicated cycle path near the town itself.
A minute drive to the northeast of Ioannina leads visitors to the stunning scenery and topography of these two chart-topping sights.
Take in a sophisticated rural lunch in the villages of Papingo or Mikro Papingo. Since the opening of the Ionian Way south and the Via Egnatia east-westhowever, road transport to Ioannina is super fast and in Ioannina opened up international air links with flights to Europe and the Middle East.
Connections are pretty well spread across the country you can even take a bus to Chania in Crete. Air links are mostly still with Athens, but charter companies from places such as Sweden and Israel have recently started flying into Ioannina. The King Pyrros Airport is 4. A small islet offshore adds to the mix, while south of the village a long sandy beach provides for swimming and sun-baking.
Gytheio also serves as a primary contact point between the Greek mainland and Crete, with options to visit the islands of Kythira and Antikythira in between. Things to Do in Gytheio Cultural Center: Apart from the usual historical exhibits there is an interesting section on local agriculture.
Said to be the ancient Cranae where Helen and Paris of Troy consummated their affair, thus irresponsibly starting the Trojan War. The Mani is the central finger-like peninsula of the Peloponnese and wild both in topography and its people, who are known to be stubbornly and proudly independent.
Travel slowly and take in the textures and subtleties of the region. It also has a little known and useful car ferry to Kissamos in Crete. The bus stop and ticketing agency is near the junction of Ermou and Vasileos Georgiou, a m hike to the waterfront. The car ferry Ionis makes a weekly run to and from Kissamos in Crete, though booking tickets online is next to impossible.
To get around by taxi call English-speaking Canadian-Greek Angeliki tel: Meteora Kalambaka The bright and cheery rural town of Kalambaka is the jumping off point for visits to the soaring, hanging monasteries of Meteora.Meet Freaky Frank
These monasteries grew out of the necessity for self-preservation, used by late Byzantine monks and hermits as a refuge and hideout against Ottoman incursions. Over the years, the monastery buildings grew organically and are now quite impressive in their extent and appearance.
Travelers can spot the tall sandstone pinnacles from afar as they rise unexpectedly from the surrounding plain, and the effect only gets more startling as you draw closer. The smaller settlement of Kastraki is actually the heart of the Meteora monasteries, though you can easily access the monasteries via a foot trail from the northern end of Kalambaka itself.
While the bulk of visitors come for the monasteries, more athletic visitors come to climb the pinnacles themselves. The Kalambaka-Kastraki combination is a pretty destination package in itself with enticing restaurants, rustic wood and stone hostelries, and a vibrant atmosphere worthy of a day or three of lingering.
The area is also an important transit point for travelers to Epirus or Western Macedonia. A winding 36 km road north leads to the junction with the Via Egnatia, where travelers can turn west for Ioannina or East for Kozani and Kastoria.
There are six major monasteries worth visiting, but unless you are a walker, or really like monasteries, you are better advised to stick with just two or three. Ideally, you will need transport to get around. The Moni Megalou Meteorou is the biggest and most well-known. Start with that and choose another one or two based on proximity, or love of hiking.
A small charge is levied to visit each monastery. You will inevitably spot specks of red, yellow and other visible colors edging their way up the vertical rock walls. These are real people doing what they love: If you climb, Meteora offers some serious challenges, and ClimbGreece can help you out. You can enjoy Meteora without the need to actually visit the monasteries by hiking along a pretty well-defined series of hiking trails. Visit Meteora offers some excellent hiking and sightseeing tours.
Best Kalambaka Hotels Alsos House — Funky, comfortable, and at times frenetic, this welcoming wood and stone-built hostelry is ideally positioned for Meteora monastery walking. It offers an airy, modern interior and a garden swimming pool. Warm and rustic all in one package. Travelers with cars are advised that the access route from the Via Egnatia to the north is a slow and winding route with many turns and bends — it may not suit people prone to motion sickness. The centrally located Kalambaka bus station a simple street corner affair is a subsidiary to the larger and modern Trikala bus terminal23 km away.
Most ongoing services will involve a change of bus at Trikala. Trikala is linked to the most important mainland destinations. Similar in many ways to its cousin Ioannina to the southwest, Kastoria features a large lake, as well as a prominent peninsula that juts out into the lake and upon which the Old Town is built.
It is renowned for its serenity, beautiful nature, and skiing, with dappled mountain ranges and some of the best old mansion accommodation in the north. Very popular with domestic Greek travelers, Kastoria built its wealth on the fur trade and is still a major sale center for fur coats and fur products. Kastoria is not on any major thoroughfare but can be comfortably reached with an easy minute drive off the cross-country Via Egnatia to the south.
Things to Do in Kastoria Old Kastoria: Wandering this compact area, you will admire some very impressive old buildings, several of which have been turned into hotels for visitors. This impressive collection of Byzantine art and religious exhibits is worth an hour or two of study. Easy to find on Plateia Dexaminis in the center of the Old Town.
The lake provides for a perfect circumnavigation on two wheels. O Podilatis hires out all kinds of bikes from serious to leisurely. The two and four seaters are great for fun with a group — and everyone gets to pedal.
Rock your socks off at this annual music fest by the river. Now into its 40th year, this five-day rockathon features contemporary and traditional Greek music. It takes place towards the end of July and you can camp. Buses take you there and back from Kastoria. Bears and other wild creatures have existed in this area for centuries, but have not always been appreciated. Located 37 km northeast of Kastoria, this wildlife sanctuary is worth a visit. Stop in the attractive nearby village of Nymfaio for lunch, or even to stay the night.
Cozy, comforting, and calming luxury dressed in stone. Tradition and luxury blend seamlessly in this striking looking building. Very convenient location in the Old Quarter. Nonetheless, it has a good intercity bus network and a centrally located bus station. Check the KTEL website for timetables. Kastoria is linked by air to Athens via Kozani with Astra Airlines. Monemvasia A Byzantine fortress town on the southeastern coast of Laconia. In existence since the 6th Century AD, Monemvasia served as a refuge from mainland invasions when it was still disconnected from the mainland and later developed into an important trade and maritime center.
Passed from the Franks to the Venetians and the Ottomans and finally to the Greek State after the War of Independencethe village languished in relative obscurity in later years. The best thing to do in Monemvasia is amble aimlessly along its tangle of alleyways and back streets. The village is effectively bisected by the main cobbled street of shops and other commercial establishments, dividing the settlement into the Upper and Lower Village.
From the Upper Village you can walk up to the Kastro Fortressnow mainly in ruins despite some attempt at restoration.
Picture-perfect views over the roofs of the houses out to sea make the strenuous climb worthwhile. Rooms are illuminated by original and stunning lighting and are large and spacious. As central as it gets.
Rooms and suites have sea views and cooling sea breezes.
There are buses from Athens, but a bus trip to Momenvasia will likely involve a change in Sparti or Molai. There are three daily services from Athens and four vice versa.
Buses arrive at and leave from Gefyra across the causeway; hike from there to the entrance of Monemvasia, or take the shuttle bus that runs every 30 minutes from Gefyra to Monemvasia. Bus tickets can be obtained from Malvasia Travel in Gefyra. Arrivals from Kythira to the Peloponnese port of Neapoli are advised to seek a taxi approx. Nafpaktos Nafpaktos is a pretty, breezy, seaside town in the mostly overlooked mainland corner of Central Greece.
Nafpaktos is conveniently located halfway between Delphi and Olympia, making for a very convenient break between the two. Top class boutique accommodation rounds off the attraction. Things to Do in Nafpaktos The Harbor: It is a bit of a strength-sapping hike up to the Kastro, but like all walks that involve an uphill climb for an hour or so, the view pays for the effort. The Kastro is in decent condition and its fortifications date back to Doric times. Built by Sultan Bayezid II when he ruled the Ottoman Empire, this splendid mosque still stands and is open to the public.
Exhibitions are held here in summer.
This gray-painted tower near the harbor, named after Souliot General Notis Botsaris, houses a small museum with paintings and engravings relating to the Battle of Lepanto.
