It's not enough to take a bus tour and run through the place. take a brake, book a room in the village and feel this huge power of rocks and human made monasteries. Best way is on foot - there many places where you can't get by car or bus. And amazing time is sunset. Most of the monasteries are... More

I have wanted to visit for some years and got the chance to visit whilst on holiday in Halkidiki. I have travelled extensively and never seen anything like it. Totally breath taking. I went on a scheduled tour from my resort. Unfortunately, We did not have a lot of free time to take everything in. You would need at least... More

We absolutely loved the monasteries of Meteora - we stayed in Kastraki village and caught the bus to the top monastery and then walked all the way back down to our hotel visiting the other monasteries en route. Quite some walking involved particularly up the steps to the monasteries! but all completely worth it, brilliant experience.

Coming back! This is something you CANNOT miss in Greece. You can do it in a day, but take 2 or more to enjoy the unique atmosphere.

I have seen a lot of things over the years, but this area is amazing, I am so glad we made the trip inland. The roads to get there are fantastic and the end destination mind blowing. Try to take at least 2 days to visit the area properly, and get fit for the stairs. A trip well worth it.

Meteora is one of the great preserved areas as a living prove of a religious existance following Cappadiocia in Turkey... I think this is a great example of how human can shape new living places or places of refuges being totaly in harmony with the nature... Churches are sole and unique like an eagle nest on the top of the... More

Don't miss this place if you come to Greece! It's worth the trip and was amazing. The view from out hotel was awesome. We did a sunset tour which was a great way to see the monestaries and learn about the region.

A must see. These monasteries and nunneries are a most amazing feat of construction, particularly as they were first constructed in the 9th century!
