“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

The monastaries are a must but don't forget to enjoy nature while you are there. The town itself is average but Meteora's natural beauty is the real reason to go. Hike, picnic, and relax. A very spiritual place to get in touch with yourself.

“Breathtaking views!”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

We visited Meteora with a group, by bus. All around us were those surreal rocks, some with monasteries on the top, one have to ask himself how did they manage to build them. We saw from the bus all six monasteries that still live, but we visited only one, the Great Meteora (Monastery of Metamorphosis). View from the monastery to Kalambaka and some other monasteries (Varlaam and Russanou) was amazing. I'm sorry that we couldn't visit other monasteries too, but we were in lack of time. Maybe next time, when we visit this extraordinary place by car, so that we can stay there as long as we want.

“Amazing visit”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

A breathtaking ride! I went with winter coming. The scenery was beautiful, with snow on the road and in the monasteries. I recommend walking to feel deeply the atmosphere of the place.

“Beautiful rock structures, awesome work of Nature”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

The whole region is surreal! Especially in the late morning sun, there's a slight mist, like a thin film, hovering over the Meteora Rocks, so mystical and beautiful. Whichever angle you take, the photos look great, even when I snap from the moving bus!
