Full description
Depart Thessaloniki in the morning and journey to the amazing monasteries' complex of Meteora to visit 2 of the 6 holy monasteries, depending on their operating schedule.

Built on immense natural pillars and rounded boulders that dominate the area, the monasteries date back to the 14th century, following settlement by monks as far back as the 11th century. Get access to holy sites such as the women's Monastery of Agios Stefanos with its impressive wood-carved iconostasis, or visit the Monastery of the Holy Trinity, perched on the top of a rocky precipice over 400 meters high.

Alternatively, discover the tower of the old preserved net at the Monastery of Varlaam, or explore the largest of the monasteries at the Monastery of Great Meteoron, consecrated in honor of the Transfiguration of Christ. Get panoramic views of these incredible structures and the stunning landscape. Enjoy a traditional Greek lunch in Kastraki, near the city of Kalampaka, before heading back to Thessaloniki.
