World Travel – Greece 2007 – Part III

30 Apr

Over the next several days we continue to explore different section of Greece seeing more ancient places along side modern. In this section of the trip we stay in Olympia right near the train station. Afterwards we head north to leave Dytiki Ellada but we first stop in Patra Greece for lunch and visit a very old Cathedral and right next to it the more modern Basilica; both of which where just fantastic on the inside. We then cross the Rion-Antirion Bridge on our way to Delphi where we spend a couple of days and the hotel had some wonderful views. The ruins and museum here are also fantastic. We then head north on a very unusual place, the Monasteries of Meteora. Here monks have built over time some very unique places “HIGH” on top on vertical rocky outcroppings. They allow visitors in a few of them where you see some of the oldest Greek Orthodox painted churches that have even been scared by old battles that took place on these secluded locations. After that we return to Athens to continue of tour; this time on a small cruise ship!!!
