your experience

Meteora - Greek for “suspended in the air”- is an apt name for this incredible combination of nature’s raw beauty and mankind’s determination.

Get aboard the early morning Athens train, armed with roundtrip tickets and sit back to enjoy a scenic ride to Kalampaka. Once there, you will embark on a 5 hour tour with the English-speaking local guide waiting for you. Travel through the splendid Greek countryside to feast your eyes on all the six monasteries, as your guide regales you with their tales, history, secrets and myths. You will also get the chance to enter three of the monasteries.

After the tour, you will be dropped off at the Kalampaka train station at about 4:30pm. With your train’s departure scheduled at 6:22pm, you will have about an hour and a half to explore the town on your own.
