Absolutely stunning!

We took a train from Athens and spent the night here. We took a cab to the top monastery and walked to each one and then took the foot path back to the city. It was breath taking!

We've been to 4 out of the 6 monasteries, but we are more attracted to the view than the monasteries itself. if you can book a taxi or driver, it is much better. and there's no restaurant up on the hill therefore remember to pack your lunch.

Travelling on our own we grabbed a brochure with the opening/closed times but nowhere saw a dress code till at the foot of each Monastery !! Bugger, slightly under dressed I'm afraid. But the view is what your there for and after one Monastery that was what we got. Views to remember for ever. It was a hoot seeing the... More

Well one photo speaks more that 1000 words. This place is mystical, the views are amazing and you feel peace on the air. Be sure to get inside of at least one of the monasteries.

A quite unique attraction, with several monasteries built several centuries ago on vertical rocks for protection. Fortunately, now, access is much easier. I would recommend taking a private tour (Visit Meteora tours were very good), as the guides know where and when to go at different times of the day. They also took us to places the mega-tours don't go... More

It was a hair raising ride up to Meteora in the tour bus but when we got there it was all worth it. The view was amazing and the monasteries fascinating. Don't miss this attraction if you visit Greece as it is well worth a visit. John & Gail Laney

We have been to Meteora many times and never tire of it's beauty and wonder. Beginning in the 14th century monks started building these monasteries on sandstone pillars that are several hundred feet tall. They constructed 20, however only six are active today. Many people who visit Greece never come here as it is an effort to make the trip... More

we took 6-hour train to get there. We would like to rent a scooter but there was none left. So we join a local tour. Well it was very nice and had someone to tell us stories. Besides, the sun was burning hot. Taking a van was much easier. 很奇妙的一個地方。我們參加當地的旅遊團,輕鬆一點的旅遊方式。修道院外觀總是讓人驚嘆,但是我們只選擇其中兩間入內參觀,一來是因為旅費有限,二來則是,裡面大同小異。挑個特殊的看看就好。

I can honestly say that people who have visited Greece and only island hopped have completely missed out. We rented a car from Athens and spent one night in Meteora. It is hard to describe this place. It is nothing like I have ever seen! From Meteora, we drove to Delphi and spent the night. It was a wonderful two... More
