Full-Day Meteora Tour from Thessaloniki by Train
USD 123.06
Overview
Experience the dramatic clifftop views and inspiring solitude of Meteora on this full-day train trip from Thessaloniki. Ride the rails through the countryside to the town of Kalambaka, where a driver whisks you away in a Mercedes van to the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit two ancient monasteries built at astonishing heights up in the cliffs, and learn the legends behind these sacred places from your guide.
What to Expect
The full-day adventure begins at the Thessaloniki railway station, where you'll catch the midmorning train with provided tickets. Relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Grecian countryside on the 3-hour journey, stopping to switch trains at Paleofarsalos station. After arrival at Kalambaka, the closest town to Meteora, you’ll be greeted by an English-speaking driver at the station and transported to the monasteries in a comfortable Mercedes Sprinter van.

Visit two of Meteora’s captivating, UNESCO-listed monasteries, built directly into the cliff face at dizzying heights by monks in search of solitude and safety. Learn the history and legends behind these sky-high sanctuaries as your them with your guide, spending about 45 minutes at each site (entrance fees not included). Admire the exteriors of other neighboring monasteries, and be sure to keep your camera handy while traveling through dramatic landscape of ancient stone jutting out of a lush valley.

Enjoy a casual take-away lunch of gyro sandwiches before saying goodbye to your driver and guide at the Kalambaka train station in the late afternoon. Retrace the route back to Thessaloniki, where you will arrive at the station around 9:40pm.
