Amazing views.

We were planned to rent scooters, but failed to do so because it was the high season(?) and only one 125 CC was available. So we joined to local tour, which cost 24 per person... read more

We were planned to rent scooters, but failed to do so because it was the high season(?) and only one 125 CC was available. So we joined to local tour, which cost 24 per person. We then believe it was a good choice because riding under the burning sun would be a nightmare in the mid summer. The view was... More

A blend of a unique site combined with a moving spiritual experience. Anyone who cares to get to really experience this beautiful country must visit Meteora. Our teenage children climbed to two monasteries and could not help but be in awe of this magnificent place.

We visited Meteora while touring the mainland, and would recommend spending a full day or 2 half days here. Take the time to visit the large monasteries and soak in the amazing views (visit during clear whether if you can). At one of the main monasteries (inside upstairs, not the stalls outside) there are prints made my the resident monks... More

An amazing experience that was so incredible. Make sure you visit this place on your trip to Greece. Also, check out Zenith Cafe in Kalambaka.

Really no words. Unreal. Not from this world. Magical place. The most beautiful place in Greece so far. I expected it to be worth visiting but it really was much more. You should at least spend one night near Meteora to see the rocks in different lightnings.

I thought the monasteries of Meteora were the most impressive thing we saw in all of Greece. I was a bit terrified at times of the height, but it was well worth it. The views from above are absolutely amazing. Be sure to bring water to the smaller monasteries because they may not have any available and it gets hot.

It is a very interesting location. Often, religious centres lie in semi-populated areas, where the access is more difficult. But they are closer to God that's for sure. The monasteries in Meteora are a must-see for religion-lovers or tourism-lovers as it gives anyone a great feeling of serenity, of being on top of the world and feeling that nothing bad... More

I am not a Christian but still find this place interesting. This is completely different from what you can imagine.

I still look back on my photos from this place and cannot believe is actually exists! My husband and I stayed for 2 nights. I was relieved that it was as not crowded as I expected. Around mid-day is when most of the tour buses started to roll in, but most do not stay long. I recommend finding a spot... More

Look, the monasteries are all beautiful and old. Their locations and surroundings are insanely beautiful. Truly mindboggingly marvellous. However, to pay 3 euros a head to be shoved through 6 fairly identical monasteries where you can't take any pictures by the coach load is frankly beyond the pale. This is what you do: Visit Megalo Meteoro at nine am or... More
