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.
Kick off your visit on the 11th (Sat): don't miss a visit to Meteora, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Monastery of the Great Meteoron, then admire the natural beauty at Varlaam Monastery, and finally see the interesting displays at Kentro Tekmhrioshs Sphlaioy Theopetras. Here are some ideas for day two: pause for some serene contemplation at Byzantine Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary, take in the spiritual surroundings of Agios Stefanos, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Agios Nikolaos Anapaphsas, take in the spiritual surroundings of Roussanou Monastery, then steep yourself in history at Holy Trinity Monastery (Agia Triada), and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porta Panagia.

Plan a trip to Kalambaka easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
