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.
Start off your visit on the 22nd (Sun): steep yourself in history at Varlaam Monastery, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Monastery of the Great Meteoron, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Roussanou Monastery, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Meteora. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the long history of Old City of Trikala, make a trip to Trikala Fort, examine the collection at Natural History Museum of Meteora and Mushroom Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Agios Stefanos, then contemplate the long history of Holy Trinity Monastery (Agia Triada), and finally steep yourself in history at Agios Nikolaos Anapaphsas.
