Amazing geography, and stunning to realize how painstaking it would be to build these buildings in this location.

Fascinating place with amazing nature and well-preserved living monastery, surely worth to visit. I recommend to come here on your own by a car to have enough time to explore the place and take pictures.

You can drive very close to each monastery, park and then walk up and down the stairs to enter them. There are a lot of stairs for some, but for some not so many. My friends and I thought it was not that difficult to climb them as we were told it would be. Out of six monasteries, we saw four.

We arrived at the site around noon, and were surprised that it wasn't that hot. Mountain air is definitely cooler than air at the seaside.

It took us about four and half hours to visit four monasteries.

We realized that each monastery is closed on a different day (two are closed on Friday) between April 1 and October 31. So, regardless of when you arrive (unless it is Saturday or Sunday), you will not be able to enter one of them. My guess is that it is very crowded here on weekends, so I don't think I would have picked weekend for visiting this site anyhow. Monasteries are open until 15:30, 16:00, 17:00 and 17:30. One of them is closed between 13:30 and 15:30 on visiting days.

Monasteries are beautiful, but the feel was kind of touristy. They also seemed quite new or recently renovated. However, the biggest, and we heard the most beautiful, of them all was closed on the day we visited... Nature in this area is absolutely stunning.

The mountains of Meteora transport you to another world. Practically perpendicular, they tower over the surrounding valleys fill you with awe at their unearthly beauty. Sitting atop several of them you will find magnificent Greek Orthodox monasteries; each with its own treasures, iconography, architecture, and distinctive reverence. They represent the largest and most important group of monasteries in Greece after those at Mount Athos. We visited Varlaam and St. Stephen's, but several others allow visitors too.

Long gone are the days when the monks ascended by a net hoisted by rope. Now you arrive by bus and that can lead to crowds, but the unique and spectacular natural beauty and the marvelous monasteries it no doubt inspired make a visit to Meteora a must for anyone spending time on the Greek mainland.

Too far for a day trip from Athens, it makes a great two day one night trip including Delphi and Thermopylae. We took a Chat tour and had excellent guides, but you can travel there on your own too.

Must to see in your life. Monasteries of Meteora are extraordinary. Oasis of peace, faith and strength. Access is not as difficult as you might think at first. 5 monasteries we have visited worth entire our effort. One of them - Monastery of Holy Trinity is the most difficult to reach . We don't see it due the time reason.
