Discovering Meteora

Travel comfortably on a luxury VIP bus from Athens to the Unesco World Heritage Site of Meteora. Explore centuries-old monasteries, enjoy breathtaking panoramic views and uncover hidden gems of Meteora that most travelers won’t know about.

Begin your journey on a private and air-conditioned bus departing from the area opposite the Central Railway Station of Athens (Stathmos Larisis).

You will even be given time to step inside 3 of them, where you can admire their stunning architecture and interiors. Think hidden gems and the tour will take you through ancient hermit caves, Chapel of Doupiani, and St. George Mandilas cave. Learn why the hermits settled in the magnificent caves 1000s of years ago and the monks' significance on the region's culture. There will be multiple stops for photo shoots too!
