Full description
Catch the 08:27 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 around 13:30 in Kalambaka, a small town built at the foot of the majestic grey rocks, and crowded by the Meteora monasteries.

Arriving in Kalambaka, your English-speaking driver will be waiting for you holding a signboard with your name on it and will transfer you to the Meteora monasteries. For 3-hours, you will have the time to explore at least two or three monasteries. Meteora is included on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites.

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 17:22, the train will depart from Kalambaka and arrive back at 22:15 to Athens.
