Days 2-3

Meteora

Time to experience a truly unique UNESCO Heritage site, the stunning Meteora rock pinnacles, home to exceptional Orthodox monasteries. Board the morning train to Kalabaka and enjoy a scenic trip through the Greek countryside. As soon as you arrive at Meteora train station, meet with your expert local guide and embark on a Meteora tour! Across 5 hours, take in the mystical landscape of the region from the comfort of your vehicle and learn the history behind each nook and crevice of the city. Stop on the top viewpoints of Meteora, visit the caves of Badovas, and go inside 3 Meteora Monasteries. 

The next day, indulge in scrumptious local delicacies on a private food and wine tour that will last from morning till afternoon! Take a walk around Kalambaka and a picturesque drive through the villages around Meteora. Taste luscious local wines, home-made sausages, and top-quality meat, local cheese, yogurt, honey, homemade sweets, and tsipouro. The delicious food, however, is not the only experience you're going to get: you’ll have the exceptional opportunity to enter the only ancient hermitage accessible to the public in the area, the hermitage of St Theodosius. Take advantage of your free evening to wander through Kalabaka in search of local delicatessens, the Museum of Mushrooms, or just a refreshing drink.
