Tours to the monasteries available at Kalampaka?

by DaleMichigan Online Now Jan 12, 2007 at 10:00 PM

I am considering a train trip from Athens to Kalampaka in order to tour Meteora. Likely that I would go up the morning of one day and return the afternoon of the next. Would I have an easy time finding a tour or driver in Kalampaka to visit the monasteries?

Is lodging available near the train station?

Much appreciated; very excited to be visiting Greece fot the first time in April. Dale

    I don't think there are trains going to Meteoras. Long ago I went there from Athens by bus. The journey took around five hours with a break. I suggest to look for an accomodation in Kastraki. This is a village at the foot of Meteoras. From there you can catch a bus to the monasteries, or you can go there by foot. It is a long way though. There are six monasteries to visit. You can go there by yourself. The admission fees are cheap.

    Enjoy Meteoras!

    Thanks for your tips on travel in Greece. I will also be traveling off-season (going in April) and made a reservation for an inexpensive place in Kalampaka for three nights. Glad you had a good time there. Dale
