Meteora Full-Day Trip from Athens by Train
- Small group
- Duration: 14 hours
The visit was very entertaining and fun! When I came to Meteora as a child, I remember visiting monastery after monastery, which was fascinating but also a bit boring and repetitive, especially for a child. Now that I came back (20 years later) I was so excited to find such a great way to explore the area. This tour brings you to secret spots that you would never find on your own. Tells you stories that you would not find anywhere else. And takes you around Meteora on a bus, freeing you of the hassle of driving around and probably get lost. The guide was very knowledgeable and kind, and answered all of our silly questions about this marvelous place. I recommend the sunset tour, since (especially in august) can be very exhausting and unpleasant to spend so much time under the hot summer sun. The journey ends on a wonderful panoramic rock on top of the mountain, from where you can admire the lone monasteries, lost in the mist during the sundown. Stunning! That's a 5 stars from me! :)
Excellent! Great explanation of the variety of monasteries and more specially of the frescoes and imaging you can find inside. Apart from that everything was carefully explained how Meteora got its current shape. To top this off with plenty of time during all this to take pictures during riding and at the sunset place in the end. Very modern bus to drive us around and excellent driving.
Absolutely worth it the 3 hours bus trip to Meteora, the Views are really breathtaking, and also really incredible to see how the monks could build those monasteries, our guide was also very friendly and funny and gave us a lot of tips for our Stay in Thessaloniki
A relatively long day to reach the amazing sites of Meteora monasteries as the round trip transportation from Thessaloniki takes 5-6 hours. However, the places are not crowded with rejuvenating serenity. The lunch restaurant also has an amazing view of caves.
Absolutely stunning area to visit and amazing views of monasteries high on rock formations. Worth the journey. Lunch is not included but very reasonable prices in stop off restaurant and food high standard and freshly cooked. Good value trip.
