The location is breathtaking. It is worth a visit to see the rock formations alone. The monasteries on top are an architectural feat. But they are much less interesting inside - and much the same. Not necessarily worth battling bus loads of middle aged Europeans. Somewhere a marks and Spencer's cafe is wondering where all its customers have gone.

The monasteries perched on top of the rocks are amazing. The scenery is awesome and a photographer and hikers paradise. You have to be pretty fit to climb the steps and remember to respect the monastery rules by wearing long sleeves, no shorts and skirts for women (wrap arounds are available to borrow) Check the opening times before you go....

It is a 4-5 hour drive from Athens to this site, so it may be hard to justify the travel time for a short vacation, but of all the historical sites on the mainland, this is the most impressive and comparable with the Acropolis. We rented a car and drove but I am now seeing 2 night tours for less... More

Good for hiking and photographing. Interesting to know the history of how they built all those monasteries on top of those rocks. Must go.

I've never seen a landscape like it. Even when you look online its nothing like going there. We walked to most of the monasteries, I have a fear of heights but I was absolutely fine. In some posts people said there were sheer drops, yes there is but all the steps up have a wall by the side, so you... More

The ancient monasteries and the surrounding landscape were exceptionally impressive...there was an ethereal aura around them...high up , perched on rocks, touching the skies.

Meteora apparently means “rocks in the air” and from a distance we could see exactly what was implied by this name. The landscape itself is fantastic enough without noticing the warren of buildings clinging tenaciously to those sheer stone pillars. We visited two Monasteries dating from Byzantine times; both were well-tended, contained some beautiful frescoes and thankfully, much easier to... More
