Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It's definitely something very unique. Being able to visit monasteries is a rare opportunity and these are very special monasteries. And they are located in a beautiful area.

    We did the sunset experience and the hiking to the monasteries. Both activities were unforgettable experiences with guides that had a lot of knowledge about the area, the traditions, the religious celebrations, the architecture …. We had fun and we learned so much and certainly would not have the same relaxing experience if we did the visit by ourselves.

    Popped into the museum on my final morning in Meteora. Truly, a hidden gem, you come here for the incredible stones but this museum shows there is much more to the area, to Greece and to the world. Taxidermy was of the best quality I think I've ever seen and the display was beautiful. The mushroom museum also, absolutely wonderful and informative. Definitely pop in here!

    What a beautiful place! And what a view, to look at from below and to look from above to Kalambaki and surroundings. And to think that humans built that unimaginable methods and power.
    It's not as difficult to walk up to as it might seem. And if you need a breather, just püretend to take pictures. There are many reasons to do so.

    To think the effort placed to build this monastery up this rock is astonishing. The view from the patio to the valley below is wonderful the Church, very well preserved, well maintained and clean is worth the effort to travel here.

    From the 3 monasteries we visited this one was the most traditional and interesting one. It is not crowded and not touristic. You need to take steps down from the main road inside an amazing forest to reach the final steps up to the monastery. The staff is very kind and helpfull. The interior is very beautiful and very clean. The shop had the most amazing and beaautiful souvenirs of the area and we regret it that we didnt take more things from there is in the city of Kalampaka you do not find so beautiful souvenirs.
    Is one of the highest recommended monasteries to visit.
    The only negative which is found in all monasteries is the public bathroom which to tell the truth is broken and disgusting. No hygiene at all. Its a shame for a place like this, for a monastery that earns so much money for a religious place to have a bathroom worse than a third division football stadium.

    Visiting the amazing monasteries was incredible. Beyond words in wonder. How the monks managed to build these are incredible feats of engineering.
    Definitely spend a day here. It won’t soon be forgotten.

    I enjoyed seeing this small monastery while in the area and catching a glimpse of what life would have been like here over the centuries.

    This Museum is UNFORTUNATELY going to CLOSE down although the material it contains is only one tenth of the what is left in storage. It is one of the most enlightening visits to a museum which contains all the artefacts and original manuscripts of many Greek and French writers. The whole education systme in Greece can be seen through the prism of a visit. The most amazing manuscripts and writings of Aesop's fables were the crown jewel. Our gratitude to Katherina our guide who is passionate about the place and was able to convey all the knowledge to those interested. It was quite an experience to learn the interaction between the French Enlgihtment and its influence on the Greeks. Moreover, the Greeks were inspired by the French moneatry system and they used it. Hence we learn that one franc was equivalent to one drachma. The almost tow hours spent in this museum was worth every minute. It is devasting to learn that this museum is closed due to some property builders. All the material collected, and a lot has never been visible, and donated by a PATRON whose generosity and legacy will be lost.

    Excellent 3 short films about Greece, Mount Olympus, the Meteora rocks and the monasteries. The 3-D experience really brings the area alive. There is an option to watch the films in Greek or English .it is a very comfortable viewing area, like a small cinema. The owner was very helpful. Fantastic value for money at just €3. Well worth a visit!

    We rented a car to visit the monasteries - the kind lady running the shop was very helpful and explained everything to us, and even threw in a baby car seat for free. Good experience through and through - reasonable price, good service, no hidden costs. Very nice family business.

    My tour guides on May 12, 2024, were so knowledgeable in all things Meteora and its history. It was quite insightful and breathtaking. Would recommend to anyone in the area!
