This full-day tour will begin at the Athens train station, where the train will head towards the town of Kalambaka. Kalambaka is a small village situated at the foot of majestic grey rocks, upon which the monasteries of Meteora are perched.
At approximately 12:05, the train will arrive at Kalambaka train station, where our driver will be waiting for you with a sign displaying your name. They will then take you to the monasteries.
Once you reach the top of these giant rocks, you will have five hours of free time to explore the monasteries and learn about their history and the grandeur of these religious sites atop the rocks. The complex consists of a total of six major monasteries: St. Nicholas, Holy Trinity, St. Stephen, Rousanou Monastery, Varlaam Monastery, and Great Meteoron Monastery. All the monasteries are of medieval origin and are built on various sandstone formations, dominating the surrounding landscape. The first monks who inhabited these places were hermits who lived in caves and sought to be closer to God. Later, the monasteries were built as a means to escape from the Turks during the Ottoman Empire. Currently, there are seventeen monasteries in ruins and only six that are open to visitors. Modest attire is required for both men and women when visiting the monasteries.
Around 3:00 PM in the afternoon, the bus will take you back to Kalambaka train station for your return journey to Athens. The train departs at 6:22 PM, so you will have over an hour of free time to stroll around the city center or enjoy a meal.
The train will arrive in Athens at approximately 10:25 PM.
