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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Agioi Saranta and Matsopoulou Mill. Change things up with these side-trips from Kalambaka: Monument for the Ipsoma 731 (in Trikala), Metsovo (Averoff Gallery, Folk Art Museum Tossizza Mansion, & more) and Filoneikos (in Karditsa). There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Varlaam Monastery, make a trip to Meteora, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Roussanou Monastery, and get lost in a book at Kalambaka Library.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Kalambaka vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

You can drive from Agios Ioannis to Kalambaka in 3 hours. Traveling from Agios Ioannis in August, plan for slightly colder nights in Kalambaka, with lows around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 17th (Sat) to allow time for travel back home.
