Greece’s rich history!

Catch the morning train to Kalabaka from Athens railway station, in which it’s scenic route will allow you to marvel at Greece’s picturesque countryside. Arriving in Kalabaka, a
magnificent little mountaintown that guards the entrance to the Meteora rock formations, is where your driver will be waiting to transfer you to the Meteoran Monasteries. At this point,
you can sit back and enjoy the ride to one of the largest and most precipitously built complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries. Built on immense natural pillars and hill-like rounded
boulders that dominate the local area, it is clear why this unique region has been named as an UNESCO World Heritage site. You will have five hours at your disposal to freely explore
three of the monasteries at your own pace; allowing an added calmness reflective of the surrounding landscape. Visit the thousand year old hermitages of St Nicholas Bandovas and get
acquainted with the rich history of the monasteries whilst observing panoramic views. When you are ready, your driver will transfer you back to Kalabaka where you can roam around
the charming town and enjoy a light lunch (not included).

At 17:15 the train will depart from Kalabaka and arrive back at 21:25 in Athens.
