OFF THE BEATEN TRACK
Here’s a tour that very few tourists know about. It’s only a day trip from Athens, and it’s an excursion all about Saints and Monasteries. It takes you to Meteora, where the people are called ‘Meteorites’, and religious dwellings and places of worship are built into the mountainside. It’s a little known UNESCO World Heritage Site and, in Greek Orthodox religion, it’s second in importance only to Mount Athos.
