your experience

After the scenic train ride from Thessaloniki, you will board a luxury VIP minibus with your local guide and set off towards Meteora. When you get your first glance of the monasteries, it would seem almost impossible to believe that a place like Meteora exists. But exist it does, and draws more than 2 million visitors every year!

Take the chance to admire 3 monasteries from the inside, as your guide divulges all the legends, history and secrets of the centuries-old place. After the drop off at the Kalampaka station post the tour (4:30pm), you can make most of the hour you get before your train’s departure at 6:22pm to explore the charming town on foot.
