00:08 – We are on a two day tour through Ancient Greece.
00:11 We’ve driven from Athens here to the Delphi,
00:15 we’re going to explore the famous monasteries of Meteora.
00:21 Delphi is one of the most important
00:26 In the sixth century B.C.,
00:32 It’s also where the Oracle of Delphi was believed
00:35 to deliver prophecies from the Greek god, Apollo.
00:38 Wow, I cannot believe what good shape these buildings
00:40 are in for being 2,500 years old.
00:42 That’s amazing.
00:46 This is the Temple of Apollo.
00:50 – It’s one of the oldest temples that we have
00:52 in the area of Greece,
00:53 and it is considered also the center of the known world
00:56 in the antiquity.
00:57 – [Host] This is a very important part of
01:02 It’s kind of spectacular.
01:12 This is so good.
01:18 Day two of your journey starts with a quick bus ride
01:26 Meteora is something you have to see to believe.
01:32 and they were once a refuge for monks
01:34 fleeing the fall of the Roman Empire.
01:36 This is insane, people live up there.
01:41 This is Saint Stephen’s Monastery,
01:43 and we actually get to go inside.
01:48 These monasteries are very sacred places,
01:50 so there is a dress code.
01:52 They ask that men have their knees and shoulders covered,
01:57 with sleeves.
02:02 Oh, wow.
02:05 This place is so beautiful, it is so peaceful.
02:08 I just love being here.
02:12 It’s been on my bucket list to come here for years,
02:15 since I’ve seen the James Bond movie.
02:16 The architecture, the paintings inside,
02:19 this place is just amazing.
02:24 Look at that!
02:26 Talk about a photo op.
02:29 We’re pretty high up.
02:30 If you like heights, this is for you.
02:40 So, that rope back there was actually used
02:45 This is the original winch to get things up,
02:50 to try and get something up from down there.
02:54 They’re calling this the official entrance to the monastery.
02:58 Where there are monks, there is wine,
03:00 and they have a lot.
03:04 We saw so much on this two day tour,
03:06 from the ruins of Delphi, to this incredible monastery,
03:09 it was like a trip through Ancient Greece.
