Meteora has been a place of prayer where obedience is practiced, the will and disciplined and faith is forged. The grandeur and the serenity, the security and the peace is experienced by everyone. These monasteries have been here since the 11th century and previous means of assent included ropes and ladders have been replaced by stairs. NO pictures allowed within... More

Although out of the way, we decided to take the long drive from Athens to see the monasteries in Meteora. And it was worth every hour we spent in the car! The landscape, cliffs & structures are breathtaking and difficult to describe. Pictures do not do it justice. We visited the St Triada and Grand Meteora monasteries and the Rousanou... More

The views of the rocks from the top road is out of this world. I had seen pictures before we went, but they just don't show the immensity of the rocks. We were overwhelmed. This is the most amazing place I have been.

This place defies description, but I will try to impart how amazing is Meteora. Simply put, you have monasteries built on top of rock pinnacles, seemingly impossible terrain. Add the physical situation to the history and you have a singular experience. We toured three: St. Nicholas, St. Barbara and Megalou Meteora. Our group consisted of my wife and our 20-something...

Loved every step of the 15km round trip. Brilliant sunshine, snow capped mountains and monasteries all around.

This amazing place is a must visit on your bucket list of Greece. As one drives into the area of the rocks one marvels as to how and why monks of older eras had built these hideaways and how difficult it had been to build and get supplies to these places of holiness. Some of the monasteries require lots of... More

This is by far the most magestic and powerful place I have seen in my life. Not only it is very beautiful, it also gives you amazing energy. Won't forget it and hoping to visit it again.

It was an interesting place to visit...geographically beautiful, the various monasteries and nunneries were lovely with some built in interesting locations (on rock pinnacles, for instance) and a neat history. If mobility is an issue, be aware that a couple of the monasteries and a Roussanou nunnery require the visitor to climb lots of stairs but the nunnery of St.... More
