Kalambaka ©
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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Kalambaka: Ioannina (Ioannina Castle, Lake Pamvotis, & more), Metsovo (Folk Art Museum Tossizza Mansion & Metsovo Central Square) and Vrellis Greek History Museum (in Bizani). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Meteora, steep yourself in history at Roussanou Monastery, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum of Meteora and Mushroom Museum, and Head underground at Cave of Dragon (Spilia tou drakou).

To find reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Kalambaka trip builder website .

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airports are Aktion National Airport, Thessaloniki Macedonia International Airport and Ioannis Kapodistrias International Airport. In September in Kalambaka, expect temperatures between 29°C during the day and 15°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
