“Stunning”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Saw this beaut on a tour company leaflet - The landscape around, the rocks the monastery's is on, is truly stunning. Took me a while to get my breathe back. How the history of the monastery's is truely intriguing too.

“Mystical, Magical Mountain Top Monasteries”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

You drive just outside the village of Kastraki, and find one of the most spectacular natural spikes of mountains, with a special surprise. The monasteries there are built into the cliffs, are accessible mainly by rope bridges, and are incredible testimonies to their builders. Very few monks still inhabit these monasteries and the fees that they charge for the visit make them some of the wealthiest clergy in the world. The price is a bit high but so is the view! Not to be missed if you do a land tour of Greece!

“Amazing.”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Meteora is just amazing. No need to be very religious, the monasteries on the top of the rocks makes one of the most awesome landscapes I ever seen. I can't understand why this place is so unknown and not extremely touristic, but actually I am happy for that. If you visit some of the 6 monasteries, they are interesting too.
One of the best experiences in Greece.

“Should be on everyone's bucket list”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

This area is beautiful for not only the scenery but also for the historic monetary's, convents, and hermitage caves. Suggest you stay in Kastraki and book a tour with Meteora Travel. This area should be on everyone's bucket list.
