The Meteora Monasteries should be at the top of your sightseeing travel itinerary, especially if you enjoy uncovering culture and embracing beautiful scenery. Meteora is a serene and picturesque setting located in central Greece, consisting of impressive rock formations and six exquisite monasteries – which are still homes to many monks living in Greece today.
‘Meteora’ derives from its Greek meaning – ‘suspended in the air’, which perfectly sums up this sightseeing wonder, since it climbs high as high as 600 metres. The six monasteries are built atop naturally-formed pillars and steeped boulders, providing a truly fascinating sight to see on your Greece holiday.
The views here of the landscapes and the Meteora itself resemble scenery from a fantasy movie; they truly are breath-taking. Ensure you take your camera along when visiting Meteora Monasteries, as the landscapes here are so mesmerising, you’ll certainly want to revisit the scenic memories at a later date.
