Meteora is one of the most stunning locations in the world and I highly recommend you visit it if it’s your first time in Greece; Doupiani House is the best hotel in the area

The Best Hotels in Meteora are mostly located in Kastraki village, which is very close to the famous Meteora rocks and the monasteries or in Kalambaka Town. You basically have these 2 options for places to stay in Meteora. Meteora (along with Acropolis and Delphi) is in the top 3 attractions in Greece and one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world.

BEST HOTEL IN METEORA: Doupiani House

BUT ALSO CHECK:

Meteora is one of the most unique landscapes in Greece and Europe. I highly recommend you visit it if it’s your first time in Greece, and if you missed it the first time, then go ahead and do it the next time! Meteora has been the background set for many blockbuster movies such as “James Bond: For Your Eyes Only” and it’s one of those nature wonders that you have to see with your own eyes to believe that they actually exist (in my opinion, Niagara falls is another one…I had the same feeling when I visited it).

Kastraki is the town which is closer to the Meteora rocks and monasteries and it’s definitely a very picturesque place but you can also stay in Kalambaka town which is larger with more shops and life in general

The best places to stay in Meteora are Kastraki village (smaller but close to the rocks with better views overall) or Kalambaka town, which is a larger town with more shops and restaurants

Meteora is a bit far from Athens and it’s not that straightforward to reach it. You have to take 2 buses to get there and it’s a long way.

So, there are 2 ways to reach Meteora from Athens:

  • BUT I highly recommend you just book a guided tour which will take you by train to Kalambaka and then with a private van to Meteora where a licensed guide will escort you and explain to you what you are seeing in all the different monasteries

VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW ABOUT METEORA

  • Best Area To Stay in Meteora: The best area to stay in Meteora is in Kastraki village which is next to the famous rocks and monasteries, but you can also stay in the nearby (larger) town Kalambaka. See Hotels in Kalambaka
  • How many days do you need in Meteora: unless you really need to explore the area and go for hiking I don’t think you need more than 1 night in Meteora but you can also do it as a day trip from Athens (but it would be a bit tiring to be honest as it’s a 5-hour train and bus trip.
  • How to Get to Meteora: you can only get to Meteora by bus or by driving; it is a 5 hour trip either by bus or car and in order to get the KTEL Bus to Trikala you have to go to Liosion Bus Station in Athens and once you get to Triakal town you need to take another bus to Kalambaka town
  • Best Tour For Meteora from Athens: I highly recommend a day trip from Athens to Meteora because it si the best way to see the monasteries and the area. This day trip is the best.

  1. Hi Pavlos,
    I’m planning to visit Meteora after Corfu 1st June and then return to Athens via train or bus the following day.
    I don’t see you mention trains?

    Do you know if it’s viable to hire a car in Igoumenitsa and then visit Vikos Gorge and on to Meteora all in one day?
    Alternatively it looks like I can take a bus from Igoumenitsa via Ioannina to Kalambaka.

    • hello,
      I really wish I could recommend taking a train in Greece because I love travelling by train, but I honestly cannot do it.
      The main reason is that travelling by train in Greece is one of the most unsafe means of transportation you can take.
      On February 2023, one of the deadliest train crashed in Europe happened just a few kilometres away from Meteora killing 57 people in a massive explosion.
      You can read about it here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-64813367
      Trains in Greece are the most unsafe in Europe and I do not recommend using them at all, with the exception of the Athens Metro which is safe and modern.
      I highly recommend you either take the KTEL bus or even rent a car which will definitely be more convenient and much safer.
      I also highly recommend you use

      for booking a car in Greece as it has the most available and possibly the cheapest options overall.
