What you can expect

Take a 2-day adventure to Meteora to discover the history of the Byzantine Monasteries, listed as UNESCO World Heritage monuments. A train takes you through scenic rural areas as you travel from Athens to your destination. Choose whether you want first-class or economy seats and a 4- or 3-star hotel.

Catch the train to Kalambaka at 7:20 AM from the Athens Railway Station and enjoy a trip that gives you the chance to admire the beauty of the countryside. Arriving in Kalambaka just after lunch, you meet your English-speaking driver who is waiting, holding a sign with your name on it, at the station. Introduce yourself and then relax as you are swiftly transferred to your hotel. .

Spend the afternoon discovering the many beautiful sights of Kalambaka which rests at the foot of the majestic grey rocks that are topped by the Meteora Monasteries. If you're fond of history or agriculture, visit the Natural History Museum of Meteora and the Mushroom Museum. Or, enjoy an optional sunset tour to Meteora and admire breathtaking views.

Return to your hotel for the night and have a delicious dinner of local fare. The next morning, your guide meets you in the hotel lobby and whisks you away to see 3 of the main monasteries of Meteora and to discover the natural beauty and the cultural heritage of this area. This morning tour takes you back into the dark ages as you hear the storey of the first hermits and monks who laid the foundations of what later became the monastic community of Meteora.

After your tour of Meteora, you are taken back to Kalambaka where you can seek out something that suits your tastes for lunch. Make sure you are all set and ready to catch the train that journeys back to Athens at 5:15 PM.
