Take the train to Kalambaka in the morning from the Athens Railway Station, and enjoy a trip that will give you the chance to admire the beauty of the countryside. An English-speaking driver will be waiting you holding a signboard with your name on it and will transfer you to your hotel in Kalambaka.
In the afternoon, meet your guide in order to visit the unique places and sites around Meteora. See places off the beaten path that only locals know and enjoy amazing views while you learn the true history and traditions of this astonishing place. You will also have the chance to visit the 1,000-year-old Badovas hermitages built inside caves and the old Byzantine church dedicated to the Assumption of Virgin Mary in Kalambaka — the most ancient monument of this region. Later, take in unique panoramic views from the most scenic spots in Meteora and capture one of the most amazing sunsets you could ever imagine.
The next morning, meet your guide in the hotel lobby to visit the two main monasteries of Meteora and discover the natural beauty and cultural heritage of this area. This half-day morning tour will take you back to the Dark Ages and the story of the first hermits and monks who laid the foundations of what would became the monastic community of Meteora. Learn which monastery was the first to be established and the true motivations behind the monks’ decision to try to climb the steep rocks of Meteora.
On the third and final day, you will have all morning at your disposal. In the afternoon, your driver will transfer you back to the Kalambaka Rail Station. The train departs from Kalambaka at 5:22 pm and arrives back in Athens at 10:15 pm.
