Experience nature's grandeur and learn about its connection with history, architecture, and spirituality on this one-day tour of Meteora from Athens! Depart from Athens Railway Station and take a train ride to Kalambaka, where you will be accompanied by the gorgeous and peaceful countryside views. Once you get to Kalambaka, a small town nestled among the giant Meteora rocks, you will be greeted by an English speaking driver and be transferred to the Meteora Monasteries. Admire the sheer mass of the rocks, perched above the town of Kalambaka at a maximum height of 400 meters. Spend a few hours exploring the various monasteries that have withstood the centuries, built by monks that used ropes, folding ladders, and the like to carry the materials. You'll also get a picturesque view of the surrounding area once you climb the summits, the perfect opportunity for a souvenir photo! At the end of the day, the driver will transfer you back to Kalambaka and enjoy a short exploration of the town, right before the train departs for Athens.
