This area is so beautiful. Pictures don't do it service. The monasteries are truly a wonder and there is more than just one. There are several in the small area. I strongly recommend taking one of the tours so that you know what the history is and how the best way is to see them all. There are some caves on the sides of these cliffs left from hundreds of years ago that you might miss if you are just driving to and from several of the monasteries. THe towns of Kalabaka and kastraki that lay at the foot of these cliffs are cute and have nice restaurants. Kastraki has more lodgings than kalabaka - I would look their for your stay. Meteora is really the name of this area but the towns are at the foot of the meteora monasteries. We were there 2 days and had time to see all monasteries and do a half day hike. During our trip the train service to kalabaka was unable to complete the route due to fires. It was not completely apparent what the train/bus then bus/train trip was and how to rebook. So I can't speak to the transportation by train to kalabaka except to say the train station really is just a stop with no real amenities. And the buses do not have toilets on them so prepare ahead of time if you are going by bus.

We added two days to our trip to Greece to be able to see the Meteora and it was so worth it.

We did one night in Kastraki at Hotel Pyrgos Adrachi which was delightful if a tad harrowing to drive to on the narrow streets. Dinner at Taverna Gardenia is not to be missed. One of the best meals of our trip.

First afternoon, we made it to Grand Meteoron, Varlaam and St. Nicholas. Took us about four hours to visit all three, driving between each one.

Grand Meteoron has stairs down and then stairs back up. 330ish in total. Largest and most impressive. Nice museum area.

Varlaam we really loved the exterior architecture and there was plenty to explore here. Nice museum area too. Comparatively easier to get to despite its many steps.

St. Nicholas was the most difficult because of the long steep uphill incline before you even get to the steps. There were places to stop and rest along the way. But it was adorable and had many levels. Could also see the ruins of another former monastery from the highest levels.

Second morning, we visited Roussanou and St. Stephen’s. We decided to skip Holy Trinity as it is reportedly the most difficult to get to and we didn’t have a goal to hit all six. Five out of six was plenty. Took us about two hours to see the last two, driving to both.

Roussanou was a lovely ascent. The newest, widest stone staircase with railings. Covered in shade by surrounding trees. Cross a little bridge to the next cliff, a few more steps and you are there. This may have been our favorite although it is quite small and there is not much to see.

St. Stephen’s was the only one where we saw nuns working so that was fun. Worth visiting merely because of ease of accessibility from the road.

This was a highlight of our trip. The views were incredible. We hiked to four of the monastics in two days. We loved learning about the history, art and architecture. Go first thing in the morning. By afternoon it gets crowded and parking is difficult.
