Meteora is definitely worth a visit. Athens, Santorini and Meteora are necessary components for any Greek holiday

It was an amazing experience. When we saw the Monastery's we just got a unic feelings and the hundreds of steps were not an obstacle. We fiiled with energy and positivism. That place is an must to see and think about life. the entrance to each monastery is 5 euro. Good to know the visit program, because some are closed... More

I loved my visit here, it was a most beautiful place to visit unlike anything else in the world.. I would like to return in the summer and linger longer to really get the full spiritual essence of the Monastery.

you could hike up from trikala but you'll need good shoes and prepare for a lot of walking. it's a fantastic place to look, be sure to read up orthodox because they are very different than the rest of the Christians,a lot of modernization going on, ie: the stairs are restructured to be easier to walk, walls are repainted. great...

Meteora is amazing! It's surely a place to visit for its natural beauty. It is totally worth it! And it is even most beautiful in the winter!

Sometimes needs a special long ride from Athens or other places but definitely worth the shot. It's impressive to see those chapels hanging on those cliffs. I was really impressed

Right...This isn't easy to describe...The place is extraordinary... Gigantic rocks all crowded in one place of a valley as if they were thrown there from space. On their feet, the town of Kalambaka. On top of the rocks, as if they were an eagle's nest, the monasteries... You need to visit this place...Greece isn't just the islands...

Meteora is worth the 2 hours drive from Athens. Starting from the historical aspect of the area and how the munks gradually carved their way up to the mountains and where able to build such magnificent structures to peace and serenity that innundates you when you go to Metro Meteora and view your sorroundings. It is simply an amazing experience... More

We spent 2 days driving around Meteora complex of unique monasteries. The view, the spirituality and the surroundings of cliffs, hills and small villages make it a magical place to visit. Yes, the drive from Athens is exhausting but there are a few very cozy and comfortable hotels where you can rest and relax.
