What you can expect?

The area has been inhabited since prehistoric times and hosted early humans in its numerous caves, protecting them from nature’s elements. Learn about the cave of Theopetra, one of the most important sites worldwide regarding human evolution and find out how the region became the pivotal monastic center it is today. 

Get a tour around all sacred, Byzantine monasteries hundreds of years old, and witness Byzantine architecture at its finest. The monasteries of Meteora host some of the most valuable artifacts of Byzantine times and are decorated by elaborate frescoes, reflecting the spirituality of the Greek-orthodox Church and now you have the chance to explore at least one of them if not more. Experience the humbling atmosphere of the monasteries and discover small monastic cells dug directly into the rock itself.

Continue by visiting the 10/11th-century Byzantine basilica of Virgin Mary at the town of Kalambaka and gaze at the impressive frescoes covering its walls. Finish your day by enjoying the sunset at this idyllic location and make some long-lasting memories! You will be given plenty of time to take in the stunning view and take as many pictures as you like! 

Since we always put your satisfaction at the heart of our tours, it is up to you to decide where you want to stay for longer based on the time left and the timetables of the Monasteries.

Some of the sites you are going to visit:

The rocks of Meteora

Meteora is a word originating from the ancient Greek word μετέωρος (meteor, meteorite, etc. relate to that word) which means lofty or elevated. They are a group of imposing rocks, reaching a height of over 300 meters, with steep, vertical smooth walls. During the 9th century, early-Christian monks chose Meteora as their place of seclusion and asceticism. Due to the inaccessibility of the site alongside with the existence of the pilaster-like rock formations, Meteora quickly came to be the second most important monastic Eastern-Orthodox community after the monasteries of Mount Athos in Halkidiki.
