Nice and beauty mountain with many monasteries and amazing beautiful views. How the monasteries were built maybe nobody can answer on that question, as it's a miracle... There is no enough time all monasteries to be visited for just in one day. The roads are in perfect conditions and you can reach most of the monasteries by car and few... More

Please be mindful and wear something culturally appropriate. I dressed without thinking in the morning and wore shorts. I was handed a sarong and a long covering to hide my shoulders. It is a quiet and reflective sight to behold.

The place is unique, a place that everybody must visit life time! Amazing giant stones made... nobody knows how.. with monasteries at the top of them! I make it to visit the monastery Agias Triadas (about 150 steps), with holy wall paintings from the 16th century!

Varlam, Megalo and a third one can be done in one morning if you have your own car. Make sure you check the opening days, the monasteries have different closing days. A good option is also to walk the path up to Agios Triades, which is 40 minutes starting from Kalambaka, in front of Alsos house. This is really worth... More

It's a good place to spend there the whole day. You can take a bus from the Kalabaka to one of monasteries and than walk to the others. Guessing there is an option to take buses between monasteries as well, but the distances are not very big and moreover you can discover some places with great views. It's possible to... More

If you are in Greece you should not miss this place. The landscape is amazing. I spent a day hiking there, part on trail, part climbing with the mountain goats to find my own amazing views. I could have spent a few more days there as I only ventured through a fraction of the trails. The trails are marked with... More

If you are going to Greece, take the time to go to Meteora. We did a crazy one day trip, taking the 8:30am train (08:27am) and arriving at Kalambaka close to 2:00pm. That meant we missed the bus to go up to the monasteries in Meteora (time tables available in the tourist information booths in Athens)... which was the best... More

Meteora was an incredible place to experience a beautiful landscape with lots of monasteries on top of a big rocky mountains. Just be careful of opening hours, every monastery has a different one. There is a 3 € entrance fee to enter each of the monasteries and proper attire is required.

Wow! is all I can say to express what I felt upon setting my eyes on this spectacular view. One cannot leave Greece without visiting this sacred mountain and monasteries. Rich in history, built with the will and hands of saints, I couldn't help but feeling the power of faith all through the visit. Even my teens enjoyed the visit!... More
