  • Take the time to contemplate the frescoes, appreciate the colors, admire the landscape without forgetting to put on a skirt (ready to welcome) for the women and to forget the hectic and modern life. Parking nearby for people with reduced mobility but staircase afterwards. Choose your visit time to avoid tourists. Respect of the closing time.

  • If you are in the area this is really a must to visit. At all, the Meteoric Mountains are wonderfully beautiful and the monasteries that are on top of it must be visited. Whichever monastery you visit doesn't matter that much. All are worth it. One monastery is more accessible than the other.

  • One of the popular and most visited monastery around here. It takes time to hike up but the landscape is amazing.
  • The monastery of Varlaam is very nice. Fee to enter the Monastery is 3 euros which is not very expensive and you have to climb up by stairs. View is amazing. Meteora is one of the fascinating landscape in Greece. You must visit this place there are 6 mail Monasteries and Varlaam monastery is one of them.
