What to expect

Depart from your accommodation in the morning, through the dramatic landscape of Central Macedonia, to the stunning monasteries of Meteora – renowned UNESCO World Heritage site – wandering between heaven and earth. Visit 2 of the 6 well preserved monasteries, built high upon the steep rocks. Each monastery owns a vast richness of frescoes and icons. Feel the hospitality of the monks and nuns who are involved in welcoming you and learn about their monastic life and their beliefs. Admire panoramic views of these incredible structures and the stunning landscape. The pillars of rock, sculpted by prehistoric rivers and crowned by otherworldly monasteries, are monuments to the power of nature and faith. Meteora means ‘suspended in space’. Your first, second and third sight of these impossibly tall, vertical rocks will have you gasping in disbelief. But it’s not just the incredible geology that stretches your imagination. It’s the monasteries balanced on these pinnacles. How did they get there? After this amazing experience, enjoy a traditional lunch in Kastraki, a village nestled among the rocks, before heading back to Thessaloniki.

FAQ

How will I recognize our tour escort?

Your tour escort shall hold MY GREECE signage at the pick up point.

What is the distance to the destination and how long does it take to get there?

The distance is 230km and lasts approximately 3 hours. During our way, there is a 15’ stop for rest and coffee.

What do I need to bring with me on the tour?

Bring sunglasses, hat, sunscreen and comfortable clothes during summer months & warm clothes and waterproof jacket during winter months. Have your ticket (electronic or printed) with you & your ID/PASSPORT (or copy).

Are there any special conditions I should be aware of?

Customers must be able to climb and descend stairs. For your convenience, the vehicle stops in front of the entrance of the Monasteries. During our visits to the monasteries we make a short stop to admire the stunning panoramic view of the Monasteries from up high and capture the stunning landscape. The monasteries have strict dress rules prohibiting entry to male visitors wearing shorts and women visitors with sleeveless sweatshirts. The approach to the monasteries is achieved through stairs and requires comfortable footwear.
