After the Acropolis, Delphi is the most popular archaeological site in Greece. The ancient Greeks were located on the slopes of the magnificent Parnassus Mountain, about two and a half hours from Athens, and centred on Delphi. The oracle of Delphi dedicated to the god Apollo is very important. In ancient times, people came to this holy place to ask female priests for advice on a wide range of topics such as agriculture, relations, and politics. Important monuments and buildings in Delphi include the Temple of Apollo, the Athenian vault, the theatre, and the racetrack that once hosted the ancient Petia game.
The Greek word Meteora means “floating in the air“, which appropriately describes a steep slope of more than 1,200 feet (366 meters) in the atmosphere overlooking the villages of Kalambaka and Kastraki in the northern and central continents of Greece. What makes these hillsides more inspiring is the historic monastery floating along the peaks. The Meteora monastery dates back to the 14th and 16th centuries and was built by monks. They sought spiritual isolation and freedom from religious persecution.
