"And from there (He went) to Philippi, which is the leading city of the district of Macedonia and a Roman Colony. We remained in this city some days…” (Acts 16:12-18).

Mon, Aug 19: Thessaloniki, Meteora: Thessaloniki City-Tour

In the winter of 49-50 A.D., Saint Paul wrote two epistles to the Thessalonians. These letters urged Christians to “live blamelessly” and to refrain from living idly while they wait for the second coming of Christ. While in Thessaloniki, you will witness a number of ancient artifacts such as the triumphal Arch of Galerius that is found at the start of Via Egnatia. Due to the convenient location, this arch was once a strategic artery of the Roman Empire. It was originally constructed in order to honor the Roman Emperor Galerius following the Roman victory over the Persians. Following your city-tour, you will transfer to Kalambaka (approximately two hours and forty minutes). This evening, you will have a marvelous meal and a relaxing overnight in Kalambaka.

Day5
Tue, Aug 20: Kalambaka - Delphi

This morning you will awaken in the home of the Meteora Monasteries! In the eleventh century, there were monks who settled within caves. However, as the occupation of the Turkish increased, the monks were forced to move their settlements higher upon the rocks until they were unreachable by any opposing enemy. These settlements became Monasteries by bringing building, and living, material by ladders and baskets. The Meteora Monasteries are notorious for preserving not only the Hellenic religion, but also, their academics and arts as well. During your visit, you will be able to view stunning Byzantine art, as well as the breathtaking scenery that surrounds the Monastery.

Historically, this sanctuary was home to the famous Greek Oracle. The Oracle provided advice to those who needed assistance in war, politics, love, and family. You will visit these ruins and the area of which it surrounds. Following this visit, you will transfer to the capital of Greece, Athens (approximately one hour and a half). Saint Paul spoke to the people of Athens and said, “Men of Athens, I perceive that in every way you are religious. For as I passed along and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription ‘to an unknown God’” (Acts 17:22).

Following your visit in Athens, you will proceed to the ancient Corinth (approximately one hour). Under the shadow of the towering Acropolis, Saint Paul lived in Corinth for two years. While here, Saint Paul felt great grief over the way that the Gentile Church in Corinth has become. As a result, he was prompted to write four letters, all with the overarching theme of love. In Corinth, you will have the opportunity to view the remains of the first century shops, the site of Saint Paul’s trial by Gallio, the Fountain of Peirene, and the Temple of Apollo.

The word Chora is the ancient Greek word for countryside – a reference to the fact that the original chapel was outside the city walls, in what would have been fields.
