Embark on a full-day trip from Athens that introduces you to the best of the Meteora rock formation and its incredible monasteries. Enjoy the convenience of train and limo minibus transport between all stops on your trip to this one of a kind destination.

  • Explore one of the world’s most popular UNESCO World Heritage Sites
  • See all six monasteries and learn about their history through eyes of a local
  • Enjoy the convenience of pre-arranged transport between each stop

Description

Get an early start from Athens on a train departing at 7:20 a.m. from Kalambaka, a town located nearby the Meteora. Enjoy the scenic landscapes of the Greek countryside before arriving at 11:30 a.m. at Kalambaka's train station where you will find our guide holding a signboard with your name. Board a comfortable limo minibus to tour around the Meteora site. See all six remaining monasteries perched precariously atop natural rock pillars and giant boulders. Venture inside one or two of them and let your guide tell you about the history and myths surrounding an ancient site where monks lived in almost complete isolation for centuries. After your tour, the bus will transfer you back to Kalambaka train station where your train back to Athens departs at 5:15 pm.
