We were there in mid November 2023. This is one of the most unique places we have ever visited. Very picturesque. We stayed at the Tsikeli Hotel (Adults only) which is at the base of the road going up to the monasteries. Parking is on a not too busy side road. The hotel is very nice, clean and comfortable. The staff are very nice, polite and helpful. Temperatures were comfortable (we are used to Hawaii weather). The heat and A/C worked well in the room. The hotel restaurant is great. The free breakfast is awesome with many choices of food to get you started on your busy day of hiking. Driving to the monasteries is easy and there are places to park at each one. Keep in mind that we were there during off-season. During peak season, parking, driving, restaurants, etc. will be much more crowded. There are different levels of difficulties of hiking depending on which Monastery you want to visit. The hotel staff pointed this out to us. When visiting the monasteries, there is a dress code for men and women. Enjoy your stay here. A definite bucket-list place to see.

Definitely worth the visit. Its about 5 hrs train ride from Athens. Train ride was excellent. If you can visit 3 or max 4 churches, its more than enough. Staying overnight is good since the sunset is amazing.
we rented a taxi from the station and he charged 20 euros per hour. it was a good decision. If one has visited Lalibela in Ethiopia, gets a better perspective and appreciation

Nothing short of amazing the scenery in Meteora, multiple lookouts to see along the road that loops around the valley.

In the mountains the higher the better for scenery and you get great views of multiple monasteries, as well as views overlooking the valley and city.

A real highlight of my trip to Greece.

We stayed at the Tsikeli hotel in Kastraki and booked a personal tour with MeteoraTrip. The hotel is likely the best in Kalambaka or Kastraki. Staying in Kastraki is closer to the monastaries than Kalambaka. It' difficult to gauge a hotel based on reviews but the Tsikeli hotel was, in reality, a five star hotel. Clean, modern, and romantic. The tour guide, Bill, was great. He made our trip one of the most enjoyable we have ever had. His knowledge was incredible. We especially enjoyed the trip to the church which ad roots dating back to the times before Christ. Actually, that church was our favorite destination. The monastaries are as mind blowing as you have read. Truly jaw-dropping. A couple of words of caution. The train from Athens is nice but the tracks have been damaged by storm and are not going to be repaired for some time. So the train stops at Lamia and there is a 2-3 hour bus ride from there. Also, these monastaries were not built for tourism so I'd suggest not visiting during tourist season as the wait will be considerable. Wear good walking shoes! You will definitely get your exercise in.

We had a full morning and visited two of the monestaries which from the outside and down below are sat perched high on the rocks and one wonders just how they got built.
The insides are equally spectacular with an incredible array of painted icons but our visits coincided with that of several coach parties and it was impossible to stand and admire, or even see, much of the work. I'm attaching a photo to show just how crowded they can get.
Go, but try later in the day when the tour groups have left. It will allow you to spend much more time there and to see everything more easily.
