From Parga: Magical Meteora Tour

5. From Parga: Magical Meteora Tour

The Rocks between earth and sky. This trip will take you deep in mainland of Greece to the group of six medieval monasteries each one balanced precariously on rock pinnacles rising up from plain. In the 14th and 15th centuries monasteries were made as places of refuge in troubled times and access to them too was extremely difficult, requiring either long ladders lashed together or a windlass and rope pulling up net, for goods and humans. Things remained much the same until the 1920’s when steps were carved into the rock allowing for easier access. It is difficult to imagine how the monasteries were built on their pinnacles in the first place. There is definitely a very special energy in this place that brings a sense of peace and serenity. Meteora and the impressive monasteries are included in the UNESCO "World Heritage sites" list and without a doubt should be on everyone’s must see list when in Greece. Booking this tour allows you to simply relax and enjoy the ride instead of renting a car and trying to find your own way to Meteora.

What people are saying about Parga

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 308 reviews

First of all, you’re on the boat for a long time roughly 11-12 hours in total. To get to Parga is quite long also (around 3 hours). However, so worth it!! Parga is absolutely beautiful. One of the cutest little towns which we were able to explore for about 2.5-3 hours. On the way back we stopped off at the blue lagoon which was unreal, water is so clear you can see the fish swimming. Deffo put your goggles on and go for a swim! The boat itself does the job a little bit cramped but I’m not skinny and managed to get around fine. One thing I would say is put on lots of sun cream because you don’t notice the sun hitting you due to the breeze.

The experience, in general, is highly recommended; The only drawback is the overcrowding of people that can be on the boat, because the most beautiful things are seen from one specific side or another and people move towards that side without caring that you are sitting there and can't see with them. ahead, so the organization leaves a little to be desired. Regarding the landscapes, they are incredible and leave plenty of time to enjoy the place and the swim. In addition, you can enjoy regional dances on top of the boat late in the evening. Worth!

Very nice tour on a not too big barge, a sailing ship with an electric drive. The tour itself was very nice, the islands with the swimming opportunities and the shore leave were very appealing. The description of the Caribbean of the Mediterranean is absolutely accurate.

A great tour, great places and a great atmosphere on the boat... unfortunately the on-board staff is very unfriendly... but the translator is great...

Super recommended excursion!! The town is beautiful and the last stop in the cove is wonderful.
