Frequently Asked Questions About Meteora The Monasteries

The opening hours often change from year to year, so beware when relying on information provided in guidebooks or general web sites. We will try to do our best in keeping the timetable of visiting times and days of monasteries up-to-date. Check the opening hours of Meteora monasteries here.

Before we answer this question we have to specify that everything should be taken into account. It depends on how fit you are, the transportation and time available, weather conditions ect. Most people are able to visit between 2 to 4 monasteries per day. The few visitors who visit all 6 of them within one day are missing out a magical, more slow-paced adventure. We recommend at least 2 days stay in Meteora.

Appropriate clothing for everyone is required to enter the monasteries. Sleeveless clothing and shorts over the knee for men are prohibited and you‘ll be denied access if dressed that way. For ladies skirts and shawls are available to borrow or buy at the entrance of monasteries in case they don’t have such clothing to cover themselves.

The Monastery of the Holy Trinity and Great Meteoro are the less accessible (over 300 steps). Rousanou, Varlaam and Saint Nicolaos have an average number of 140. Some of the monasteries apart the staircases requires uphill walking in paved paths. The Holy Monastery of St Stephen is connected with a walking bridge, thus making it more accessible than any other monastery.

In each monastery there is an entrance fee of 3 euro per person. Kids up to 12 years old they don’t pay entrance fees in the monasteries.

There are many reasons not to want to drive while exploring Meteora — like if you’re not confident driving on the opposite side of the road, your spouse is a terrible copilot and you just want to have fun instead of arguing; or if you want to enjoy the scenic road and not to feel stress about the narrow and curvy roads. Lack of parking space outside the monasteries is especially frequent phenomenon during the pick period in the summer. So by joining one of our tours might save you a lot of headaches and unwanted distractions.

Wow! Book this trip with this company-you will not be disappointed!! We took the Half-Day Tour and the Sunset Tour. As advertised, they covered different monasteries. The driver knew exactly where to stop for the best pictures and navigated the winding roads beautifully. The guides were engaging and thorough in their knowledge. We were appreciative of the complimentary cold water, the air conditioned small bus, and curb side pickup at the hotel. We have several friends traveling to Greece soon and we recommended this company to them.

Our trip to Meteora was organised by VisitMeteora company. They were exemplary. All pickups were punctual, vehicles were safe and immaculate, drivers careful and courteous and the guide Vasilis was thoughtful, and provided relevant information in an interesting manner. In addition, on arrival in Meteora we had an emergency situation and the office staff and manager couldn't have been more helpful. We have traveled extensively and we believe this company is everything and more that a traveler could want.
