Simply Amazing

Only few words: Miracle of Nature (rocks) and humans( monasteries). It's a landmark that everyone should visit at least once in a lifetime.

The Meteora are wonderful and the place is quite unique, although it is sad that tourism might have ruined the monastery life a bit. I think it was the most beautiful place I visited in Greece (although this is very subjective of course). I do not think it is necessary to go inside all the monasteries (I did 5 of... More

Gorgeous rock formations with many unique temples on them. Easily accesable with a car. I visited the place at about 7 am - the view was amazing.

It is one of world's UNESCO heritages and it is unique. It is worth climbing up all those steps not only for the view but of course for visiting the monasteries. We only visited one though because it was a hot day.

A trip to Greece is not complete without a train ride to this exquisite world heritage site. These enormous, natural rock columns have perched on their tops some of the most fascinating monasteries in the world. Be aware that some sites had many stairs and no railings. We took the bus up and walked back to town.

Words can't describe this world heritage monument! Meteora is a truly inspiring and sensational setting of overwhelming rock formations, but one must also be prepared to expect that this trip is much more than merely visiting an exquisite landscape. It is a pilgrimage to a holy place for all Christians around the world.  Nowadays six remaining monasteries built on sandstone... More

Meteora - a mecca for local tourists it appears. If you have the choice, get your own car and drive there, or preferably ride it with a motorcycle. Avoiding the masses will be a difficult achievement during peak season, so aim for off peak - late august to September, to enjoy the greek sun and smaller crowds. Meteora itself is... More

Breathing taking views. Great hike. Romantic getaway. Great restaurants and pubs in downtown Kalambaka. Reasonable for the pocketbook. Take the tour to get a better understanding of each monastery and avoid having to climb and walk way, way too far from one monastery to another. But seriously, there is no way a person can walk from one monastery to another... More

Although rather inland and far away from the more sea-side picturesque regions, Meteora is definitely worth a visit. From the city located at the top of the hills is an 30 minutes walk to most of the churches, and the entrance is free. Not that many tourists when I visit it (late July) although the view from the top is... More
