We went here on a day trip from Parga and it is spectacular photographs don't do it justice. We went inside just the one monastery the great meteor an and had a great guide,there are over 200 steps to get up there but worth it.

Meteora means 'suspended in the air.' That is what these towering rock formations look like. It is as though the many monasteries nestled on top of them are hanging in the sky. The views are breathtaking as you travel up the winding roads to each Monastery, many of which are still in operation today. Rather than driving from Athens our... More

We arrived in a light drizzle and fog in a older group of 34 people as part of a tour. So the visibility and picture taking looked to be limited. We drove to peek at St Stepanos and then on to Rousanou where a visit had been arranged. The bus let us off above the Monastery so the people would... More

The place itself is unique in world by geography and by the spirituality community that grow there over time. Again it us recommended to read some Wiki before visiting. Not going for the first time, but every time it was a superb experience. Although I would recommend to choose a sunny day to visit, because on the cliffs you can't... More

A truly amazing place to see all the monasteries and churches perched on top of these rocks. A two day adventure that will last a life time.

This was almost torturous to get to, being a 4.5 hours drive from Athens Greece. Even with my own mistake of driving an hour out of my way into the mountains I still feel it was one of the most incredible experiences of my trip. The road takes you to each monastery and each of them have strict short visiting... More

The famous view from the movie "For your eyes only". Quit hard walk climbing to the upper deck, but the view worth it all.

If there is one place you must visit in Greece, it's this region and the monasteries of meteora. They are spectacular. There's not much more you can say....just go there and they will speak for themselves.
