Full description
The trip will start from Thessaloniki early in the morning. After a 2.5 to 3-hour drive, your group will reach the little town of Kalambaka right under the Meteora cliffs. From there, you will head to Kastraki, the closest village to the monasteries.

You will visit Gran Meteoro which is the largest of all the monasteries and then a second monastery depending on your liking. See the life of the monks and their cells, the magnificent views from the peaks of these cliffs and the great panorama that the area offers.

After your visit, the driver will take you to Kalampaka, where you can have a rest and enjoy a coffee, drink or snack. Later, start your return drive to Thessaloniki and if you wish, there can be another stop along the way so that you can have lunch in the traditional town of Grevena.
