Exclusive two-day excursions

Combine in one trip a chance to see two Greek treasures - Corfu island and the monasteries of Meteora, a visit which rarely manages to combine in a single journey. Meteora and the Old Town of Corfu are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Christian monasteries of Meteora, based on the huge steep rocks, majestic aspiring to the sky, causing an indescribable feeling, combines at the same time fear and admiration. Until today, the way these monasteries were built, is still a mystery. Rocks over time gained the most bizarre shapes and resemble a "city of rocks". During the excursion you’ll see the Meteora and visit to functioning monastery.

After visiting Meteora way lies into Igoumenitsa, a port city, one of the country's main sea harbors. From here on a clear day you can see the outlines of the pearl of the Ionian Sea - Corfu. The distance separating the mainland from the island a comfortable passenger ferry overcomes in one hour. Arrival to the island, accommodation in a comfortable hotel, dinner and overnight.

The next morning, after breakfast at the hotel, start your acquaintance with the city Corfu. The city's architecture wonderfully combines the Venetian and the British and French elements. Among the most important sights - the Old and New Fortress, so calling symbol of Corfu - Pontikonisi island, as well as the biggest square of Greece – Spinada, Palace of the Archangel Michael and St. George, numerous Byzantine and post-Byzantine churches, including the Church of St. Spyridon - protector and patron of the island. An important monument of Corfu is also stunningly beautiful Achillion Palace - the residence of the Empress Elisabeth of Austria-Hungary (Sisi). The island charms and fall in love with at first sight.
