The gateway to one of the largest monastery complexes in Greece, the small town of Kalambaka nestles against a landscape of imposing rock formations rising 400 m (1,300 ft) into the air. Nearly leveled during World War II, the town rebuilt and reinvented itself in the post-war period, quickly becoming one of the region's major travel destinations.
Kick off your visit on the 16th (Sun): take in the spiritual surroundings of Meteora, take in the spiritual surroundings of Monastery of the Great Meteoron, then steep yourself in history at Varlaam Monastery, and finally learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum of Meteora & Mushroom Museum.
