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.
You've now added Meteora to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 16th (Tue): take in breathtaking views at Portitsa Gorge, see the interesting displays at Monastery of Agiou Nikolaou, Metsovo, examine the collection at Digital Projection Centre of Meteora’s History and Culture, then take an in-depth tour of Hellenic Culture Museum, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Byzantine Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Church of Porta Panagia, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Koursoum Mosque, then contemplate the long history of Agios Stefanos, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Roussanou Monastery, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Meteora.
