Begin your journey at 8:28 AM from Athens Railway Station aboard a train that glides through the picturesque Greek countryside. By 12:49 PM, you'll alight in Kalambaka, where a welcoming English-speaking driver, holding a sign with your name, will greet you. He'll whisk you away to your hotel, ensuring a seamless transition. As dusk approaches, you'll be part of the enchanting Meteora Sunset Tour. This experience promises not only breathtaking vistas but also an introduction to Meteora's hidden gems: the inner sanctum of a monastery, the ancient Byzantine church, and the secluded hermit caves that whisper tales of old. Your subsequent morning in Meteora offers an enticing choice: Would you prefer to navigate the rugged terrain with the Meteora Hiking Tour or explore the landscape's majesty in comfort with a Half-day Tour on a minibus? Either way, a knowledgeable guide awaits you in the hotel lobby, ready to delve into Meteora's vibrant natural scenery and deep-rooted cultural heritage. Immerse yourself in stories of early hermits and pioneering monks, the very souls who founded the illustrious monastic community of Meteora. After a day rich in exploration and wonder, a driver will be prepared to escort you at around 5:00 PM to the train station. Your return journey to Athens kicks off at 5:35 PM, bringing you back to the vibrant city by approximately 10:00 PM.
