Discover the spectacular cliff-top Meteora monasteries on a day trip by train from Athens. Enjoy views of the Greek countryside en route. Visit 2 or 3 monasteries of your choice and then explore the small town of Kalambaka before returning to Athens.
What to Expect
Take a day out of your sightseeing in Athens to visit the awe-inspiring Meteora monasteries on this 14-hour excursion.
Catch the train for Kalambaka at 08:27 from the Athens railway station and admire the beauty of the countryside along the way. At around 13:30 you’ll arrive in Kalambaka, a small town built at the foot of majestic grey rocky cliffs that are crowned by the monasteries of Meteora, which have been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
When you arrive in Kalambaka, an English-speaking driver will be waiting for you, holding a signboard with your name on it. You’ll be shown to the vehicle that will take you to the monasteries, where you’ll have 3 hours to visit 2 or 3 of them.
At the end of the day, you’ll be transferred back to Kalambaka, and you’ll have some time to explore the town and enjoy a light lunch (not included in the tour price).
At 17:22 the train departs Kalambaka, arriving Athens at 22:15.
