Shore Excursion Meteora: itinerary

Our shore excursion travels by bus for an hour and a half just to visit the Monasteries of Meteora.

The greek word meteora means ‘suspended in the air’. In fact, the monasteries are built on rock formations which rise steeply, up to 300 metres high. From here, there are spectacular views of the valley below.

In the 11th century hermit monks moved to these monolithic sandstone pillars to live a life of solitude and refuge. By the 16th century there were 24 monasteries in this tranquil and beautiful corner of the world. Today six remain.

Meteora is the second largest Eastern Orthodox monastery in the world after Mount Athos: Amazing when you think about how difficult it must have been to build these wonders!

Inside, it’s not possible to film or take photos. To reach the monasteries there are around 180 steps to climb and unfortunately there is no wheelchair access.

Join us on a Meteora shore excursion and visit this incredibly special and breath-taking destination.
