Very punctual team and very accommodating. Highly recommended. An awesome and unique experience❤️ once in a lifetime trip. Full day full of history and the beauty and surroundings, including The Valley below are breathtaking. Do the 2 days or more. Very affordable as well!!

The one with the most walking, assuming you are driving or being driven to each monastery. Several hundred metres on a paved downhill path, and then a steep 160 steps interspersed with 100 metres of flat walking to the entrance. And then reverse that walk to leave. Again a very impressive chapel interior. Larger grounds than Meteora or St Stephen gives good panoramic views. The significant highlight here is, with a good camera, the possibility to capture 4 monasteries in one scene. And double up with two monasteries close together for other shots.

The monastery most famous for being the scenery of the “For your eyes only”-movie. Although only 140 steps in the shade, it was not the easiest accessible of the monasteries, since one first has to descend a rather long way, which at the end has to be climbed. But the monastery was the most beautiful one, so all the effort will be rewarded.

This monastery was beautiful inside and outside with the views. Beware that the there is a steep walk down and then another 300ish steps to reach the top of the monastery - definitely a little bit difficult to trek to the top. Despite the walk, worth it for the views!

The special thing about this monastery is that it is accessible via a small path from Kalambaka. It takes around 45 minutes to get there, or a bit more if you're not used to hiking. So if you arrive in Kalambaka around two or three hours before the monasteries close this one is the place to go. And without the new roads and dozens of tour buses right next to it, visiting this place feels quite different from the other monasteries.
It is also different from the other monasteries in that not the whole top of the rock is covered with buildings. There are some areas next to the monastery with a little bit of agriculture and very good view of Kalambaka town.
The monastery itself is very nice but fairly small.
I recommend seeing at least one more monastery apart from this one: the Megalo Meteoro Monastery.

I have seen many sunsets from traveling the world. This one is just breathtaking. The rock formations are majestic and the monastery built on top of the rock is just plain impressive...but the sunset...wow It was worth waiting around for one hour just to see it. If you want the best view (on the edge of the cliff) I recommend you show up at least an hour early because the location fills up rather quickly. Be careful though, there are no barriers so I wouldn't recommend taking kids on the edge of the rock.

Agia Triada is probably the least visited of the monasteries in Meteora. It is the Monastery featured, I believe as St. Cyril's, in the Bond film For Your Eyes Only.

As of this post, they are doing a significant amount of renovation on the site but it is well hidden from the public. The church is pretty and the views are magnificent. It costs 3 Euros per person to enter. Unlike the other monasteries there is no gift shop.

The important information is how do I get to it? First it is on the way to St. Stephen monastery (the easiest to get to). There is a small area for parking along the entrance. Once you park, walk down the path. The path is wide without any cliffs to worry about and with a step every 20-50 feet. It is similar in design to the entrance to Megalo Meteora, but I felt less steep however a little longer. At the bottom of the path you go up the stairs. They are a little irregular, but, without the crowds of the other monasteries, they are easier to ascend and descend. Also, the safety walls are higher. As someone with acrophobia, they made me feel safer. The walls are along the side all the way up. I have kept looking for comments on how to enter and no one really discusses it. So again it is a walkable path down with out any cliffs to worry about. The stairs are not hard with a a good safety wall and probably no more steps than Megalo Meteora on the way up.

It took us about twenty minutes to go up and about the same to go down. We were the first people on the morning we visited. We took some water and filled our bottles at the fountain on top.

Again, I am acrophobic, but you can see the views away from the sides of the cliff. So go. The quiet is amazing, as all the other monasteries are extremely busy. Also, we took our five year old daughter. She made it up and down on her own

As for all Meteora, words to explain this are not enough. Pictures shows part of what you could experience, but to be there is unforgettable memory forever.

The monastery if very similar to the others however it is a long walk to get to. Many steps. The aircar will take over elderly and disabled people (I'm not sure if there's a cost)
