What you can expect

Take a day trip from Athens to see the breathtaking wonders of the Meteora Monasteries that perch atop cliffs. You have a full day to explore at your leisure with transport to get you to the main hot spot, as well as from Athens to Kalambaka.

Catch the 7:20 AM train to Kalambaka using your electronic ticket. Then, sit back and relax as the train passes through the wonderfully scenic countryside of Greece. Arriving in Kalambaka at approximately 11:30 AM, the sun is high in the sky, casting few shadows over the stunning view of this city at the base of the cliffs.

At the rail station, look for your English-speaking escort who is holding a sign with your name on it. Once you meet up, enjoy a convenient transfer to the Meteora Monasteries. For about 4 hours you can sightsee, visiting 3 of the monasteries that are a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Monument list as well as the hermit caves of Badovas.

At the end of the day, your driver returns you to Kalambaka, where you have time to stroll around and have a light dinner if you'd like. At 5:15 PM, the train departs from Kalambaka, and arrives at 9:25 PM back in Athens.
