Hi I'm currently in europe and i have a schengen type visa D, issued in Manila for France since Ive been studying here for the past four months. Im wondering if this is sufficient for me to go to Romania this December?
I am planning to take the morning train from Athens to Kalambaka on December 16th. I will get to Kalambaka at 1pm and the train back to athens will be at 5pm. I only have four hours for the monasteries. Can I do this? I don't mind going to only one or two monasteries and just get a view of the others. How long would it take my by walking/hiking/taxi to get to a good spot for the monasteries? Thank you.
We're going to Meteora for climbing in September and stay in Kastraki. Are there any busses operating between Kastraki/Kalambaka and Pili/Pyli or Mouzaki?
we are traveling from Patra to Delphi to meteor and back to athens airport 19th-22nd of sept. any suggestions on where to stay and is this trip doable?
is it possible to stay at kalambaka and visit places like delphi?
Hi! My sister & I will be staying in Kastraki for 3 nights during April 2014. From what I can gather, the local bus ( from Kalambaka) to the Meteoras only begins operating in May. Does anyone know if the bus does operate during April? Many thanks!
In late October we will be visiting Meteora (staying in Kastraki). What is the best way to travel from this area to Ioannina where we will catch a flight back to Athens? Are there regular buses? Can we hire a car in Kalambaka and drop it off in Ioannina?
I am planning to go to Meteora for 1 day and I read a lot of forum but cannot figure out how to plan. I am thinking to take a over night train and sleep on the train and arriving Kalambaka (but dont know the train takes how long to go as some said 6 hours some said 8 hours ?? if I arrived kalambaka it is taking the bus to Meteora in early morning then I plan to work for half day and taking train back to Athens around 1pm.
Can someone help me whether it is workable and how I can get the train time table
Thus the date I plan to go is arriving on May 8 which is Tuesday, and I read some post said that Tuesday will be closed, is it ?
Many thanks in advance :)
I am travelling on a four day tour in mid/late August that arrives in Meteora in the evening (from Delphi) and has the Monday morning in Meteroa before heading back to Athens. I don't think this will be enough time to really see Meteora so I was thinking of staying longer and making my way back to Athens by myself.
Plan A - stay for the afternoon and then catch the 5.32pm train back to Athens on that day (i.e. one full day to see Meteora)
Plan B - stay the afternoon and the following day and then catch the 5.32pm train back to Athens (i.e. two full days to see Meteora)
How long do you think I need to look at the monastries? Are there other sights that I should take the time to see in the area? Are the trains running at the moment?
Hi. We are a pilgrimage group. We will be taking a tourist bus. From an overnight stay in Kalambaka, we plan to explore the Meteora monasteries only for the whole morning. Then Lunch. Then we depart for Athens at 1:00 P.M. We plan to make a brief stop in Delphi. Then on to Athens for an evening panoramic tour of key sites of Athens. Then we stay overnight in Athens. Is that a workable schedule for one day? We are a group of 35, some elderly. We appreciate your critique of this trip. Thank you so much!
I'm going to meteora in 10 days and I've been said, there's no bus from kalambaka to meteora in winter. Should I take a taxi to go up or is it posible to go walking? Anybody could tell me how long does it takes?
Thank you very much,

I'll be traveling to Greece in July 2011. We will be in Delphi 7/13 and would like to visit Meteora on 7/14. Does anyone know how long of a drive (renting a car) it is from: Delphi to Meteora, and then from Meteora to Olympia. We're not sure of the best car route from Meteora to Olympia, and whether we should stay overnight in Meteora area before heading south to Olympia. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
We are planning a trip to Greece for Christmas break. Does anyone know what the weather is likely to be and if things will be open at this time? We'd like to stay a few days in the area.
Next month our family (no small children) will be driving from Athens to Meteora. We won't be in a hurry and are trying to decide on a brief stop to break up the trip and make it more pleasant. Any recommendations on what is worth the stop for a meal, a pleasant walk, or some other diversion? Lamia looks to be halfway but we aren't sure there is much there. Thanks in advance!
Are there overnight buses from Athens to Meteora?
Hi. I am planning to visit Meteora the 10th. of June. I read that Great Meteora is closed Tuesday and Wednesday in winter; and only closed on Tuesday in summer. Do they consider June 10 summer or they stick to the calendar? Thank you. David.

Has anyone taken a 2 day tour of Meteora from Athens? There are several offered through many different companies. Each includes about 2 hours in Delphi, then the next morning in Meteora.
I know this is not a lot of time in either place, but unfortunately will be in a time crunch so don't have much more than this.
Can anyone offer any reviews of such tours?
Thanks so much!

Looking forward for Your answer.
I would like to go on a 1 day tour from athens (where i'm staying) to meteora, because of a tite schedual, and I suppose that the best way of using the time correctly is to take an organized tour. But are there any 1 day organized tours from athens to meteora? and another question is how much is about to cost (i'm on a low budget...)
thanks a lot,
I wander if a car has any advantage when visiting Meteora - if not - I might chose going by train or bus - also if you have recommendation for nice but not expensive accomodation that will be great - any advices are appreciated - thanks - Mary
I would like to have more informations and photos on Ziagos Guesthouse. Do you have their fax number and e-mail address ?
My wife Teresa 62 can´t climb steps because of his legs; can she visit the interior of a Meteora Monastery ? Thanks. Sal Perez (Mexico)
I have read that the bus from Delphi departed on Friday 3.15 pm and the duration is about 6 hours. So it will be very late when we arrived.
Do anyone know earlier timetables from Delphi - Meteora? Do we had to changed busses? If not, where to overnight between Delphi and Meteora?
