There are no words to describe these monasteries. I visited 4 monasteries by walk. It needs lot of stamina. There are a lot of stairs uphill and downhill. Ticket to enter monastery is quite cheap(3 euro). The place is beautiful and amazing.

This is a Beautiful Monastery to Visit without climbing a thousand steps like a Donkey. Wonderful scenic views plus the Chapels themselves are decorated with Icons and artwork

Sprawling monastery boasting the easiest access of any monastery in Meteora. Access is via a wooden bridge - no climbing stone stairs carved into the rock. This does, however, mean more crowds, so plan your visit accordingly (ie: not when six coach buses are in...More

Have visited the church on the 3rd of November. We have never visited before. It is the most accessible Meteora church. There is a shop where you can buy souvenirs etc. You have to wear a skirt in order to go in. If you have...More

This has quite a few steps so if you can't climb don't bother to go up. It is worth the walk and the view is breathtaking. How they managed to make all these monasteries on top of such steep mountains is a marvel. Very calm...More

Jaw dropping views of the monasteries perched atop the finger of rock pillars rising hundreds of feet off the valley floor. We have never seen anything like. If you have an aversion to many stairs, visit St Stephens as it almost has none. Highly Recommended.

This Monastery is at the beginning or end of the Meteora loop depending or where you start it. One of the chapels is under renovation so we didn't get to see that, but there is a few pretty courtyards and terraces to enjoy as well...More

I have difficulty with climbing, so we decided to limit ourselves to this nunnery since it is very accessible. It was beautiful, the view fantastic, and the nuns tend the garden beautifully.

The mountainous rock formations of Meteora are breathtaking in and of themselves, but seeing so many crowned by a monastery the architecture of which rivals that of the great European cathedrals is simply stunning. The practice of constructing these fabulous complexes is, of course, consistent...More
