Perched high atop a dramatic range of granite and sandstone cliffs on the Plain of Thessaly, the Orthodox monasteries of Meteora were built beginning in the 14th century as a place of refuge from encroaching Turkish rule. Today, six of these stone abbeys remain and are collectively listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your full-day exploration of this cultural gem begins with morning pickup at your Thessaloniki hotel in a private vehicle and a scenic drive across central Greece.

As you approach, marvel at the cliffs rising spectacularly from the plains, and imagine the dedication and feats of engineering required to build atop such an inaccessible landscape. Ascend the cliffs via a modern road, and visit two to four of the surviving monasteries, according to your own pace and preference. Learn about the lives of the monks who sought peace and retreat here, and soak up spectacular views of the surrounding rocks and valley.

In the afternoon, visit the nearby village of Kalambaka for lunch at a local restaurant (own expense) and a chance to explore the region’s modern-day culture. Throughout the day, enjoy the personalized attention of your guide and a flexible itinerary customized to suit your wishes. Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your Thessaloniki hotel.
