Description of the private tour to Delphi and Meteora

St Luke Monastery

Within two hours you will reach the Monastery of St. Luke (St Loukas or Ossios Loukas), which is one of the most representative monuments of the artistic greatness of the Byzantine Empire.

It was built in the period of prosperity under the Macedonian dynasty, between 867 and 1059 AD.

The monastery is dedicated to St. Luke the Steiriotis. His family was uprooted from Aegina after the raid of Saracens and Saint Luke was born in “Castorion”, the current Delphi.

Delphi is one of the national treasures of Greece, the heritage of UNESCO, renowned as the Navel of the earth in the ancient years.

It was here that the Greeks honored God Apollo, creating his Sanctuary, and it was here that the god would speak to the people through his oracle. Today, you can visit the impressive archaeological site, where you will see the Temple of Apollo, the Kastallia Spring, the Athenian treasury and the theatre.

After this fascinating sightseeing, you will enjoy your lunch in Delphi and you will relax in the afternoon.
