Don't miss the opportunity during your stay in Athens to visit the breathtaking Meteora Monasteries with this amazing full-day rail tour. Countless panoramic images will remain etched in your memory with the opportunity for video and photos along the way.
Catch the train to Kalambaka in the morning from the Athens railway station and enjoy a trip that will give you the chance to admire the beauty of the countryside. Arrive in Kalambaka, a small town built at the foot of the majestic grey rocks and crowned by the Meteora monasteries. Your expert driver will be waiting for you holding a sign with your name, and you will board to a private vehicle that will transfer you to the Meteora monasteries. In the comfort of your private experience, sit back and relax on the way to the Meteora rocks, which are included on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites.
For 5 hours, you will have the time to explore three monasteries. Along with an extra feeling of safety, far from multiplied groups, visit the thousand years old hermitages of Bandovas, learn the stories and the elements, and enjoy great views from the most panoramic spots. At the end of the day, your driver will transfer you back to Kalambaka, where you will have the time to stroll around and have a light lunch (not included). At 5:15 PM, the train will depart from Kalambaka and arrive back at 9:25 PM to Athens.
