We spent 2 days driving around Meteora complex of unique monasteries. The view, the spirituality and the surroundings of cliffs, hills and small villages make it a magical place to visit. Yes, the drive from Athens is exhausting but there are a few very cozy and comfortable hotels where you can rest and relax.

Everyone kept telling me to go there and see the mountains and the monasteries. They only open 1 each day there are 7 in total 1 opened each day to visit. Best time to visit is in summer, in winter there might be foggy and low visibility.

Traveltime from Athens Almost 5.5 hours from Athens by Bus.We took bus due to the ongoing strike…. However, Meteora region is reached faster by Train. The Super monstrous rock hills are jawdropping and worth every bit of your travel investment. Hotels are relatively expensive than Athens so its suggested to book pre-hand. Hotel We stayed in Tsikeli hotel which was... More

Many Christian monasteries on the edge of the cliff and many visitors who admire this splendor of nature. The road from Kalambaka to climb up to the monasteries, by car or a bus, is very good!

I visited Meteora in winter alone by train which is considered as unusual and brave. I joined a local tour and visited 2 monasteries inside while all 6 were covered in different extents. The view is breathtaking! Even you stand in front of those pillars and monasteries, you just can't believe how they were formed and how those monasteries can... More

I only heard about this place from friends when I was planning my trip to Thessaloniki. We did a day trip with kids from Thessaloniki which is a long ride but it deserves everything. Simply, Amazing place you should not miss it if you are in northern greece

I hadn't even heard of Meteora until I started planning a trip to Greece and booked because I visited in January, a bad time for the islands. I'm so glad I came here! It is one of the most naturally beautiful locations I've ever visited, steeped in history, completely safe for the solo female traveler. The people are kind, the... More

I cannot even describe how amazingly unique is the scenery in Meteora. You can feel your soul becoming one with the nature while your breath is taken away by the magnificent views. Meteora is one of the few places in Greece, and I would dare to say in the world, which combine unique nature characteristics with history. This is a... More

A must see at least once in life: unique geological formations topped by medieval byzantine monasteries in precarious balance overhanging hundreds meters deep canyons. Already part of my heart!
