The historical capital of Ipirus, next to a lake.
After taking a road with a breathtaking scenery we come to Kalambaka. There we will see Meteora, a rock formation where Byzantine monasteries were built in the 14th century. There, monks sought isolation and refuge, especially during the Turkish occupation. We will visit 2 of the most famous monasteries built on the edge of the rocks.
The 2nd largest city in Greece where the letters to Thessalonians were sent. We will see the famous old city walls, St. Dimitrios Church, the triumphal Arch of Emperor Galerios. Also St Sophia with the great mosaics and of course, the White Tower.
The first European city to accept Christianity with a beautiful, natural harbour. Paul, Timothy, Silas and Luke were the first to arrive there.
