It's hard to write something new for this amazing place. I have been here a few times and I always love going back and discovering new views and new places to take pictures from. Apart from the monasteries themselves, the rocks are pretty amazing. Next time I want to spend a couple of days so I can walk around instead... More

A place you want to visit again and again. Every time I visit I am filled with different feelings. You don't need to believe in God to see Meteora as a wonder of nature and human construction coexisting perfectly.

This place is very unique and I never see in other part of the world. We drove here by car and we can beautiful views of 6 monasteries "floating" in the sky. Definitely it is a good place to go and hang around. In our case, we only go to the biggest monasteries and we only pay around 2 Euro... More

It was all worth the effort to hire a car in Athens and to drive to Meteora. What an extraordinary place! Be prepared to climb a lot of stairs. And do return at dusk to take your pictures in the softer light than during the day.

Great views and good food! Accessible by train from Athens (about 5 hours). We stayed overnight, took a half day tour from a local guide and returned via the afternoon train. Would have been good if we had more time...and a car. Great place for hiking if you are into it.

I loved Meteora! It is unique! Sunset is gorgeous and all the monasteries are special, peacefull and fulfilling. The Great Meteora is the biggest of the six monasteries that can be visited. Pay attention to the schedule because monasteries are closed on different days.

A taxi drove me through kalambaka to meteora and its monastries of which... More

Beautiful. Awe inspiring. Humbling. Meteora in English means in the middle of the sky so picture there means 5000 words at minimum.No a single doubt to recommend it. no second thoughts ! Go!!!

One of the most majestic and breathtaking sights I've ever experienced. We hired a driver to take us here last minute from Thessaloniki (about 2.5 hours) because we were short on time and did not want to stay long. But definitely go as part of a tour group if you have the chance, as it's much more economically viable. It's... More
