we highly recommend this shore excursion for those who want to go beyond the well-known Greece and taste a combination of rare landscape and religious belief

This excursion begins with a short panoramic drive of Volos town before beginning a scenic ride through the fertile plains of the Thessaly region of central Greece. (drive of approx. 2 hours). Before arriving in Kalambaka, built at the foot of the majestic grey rocks that point to the Pinos River flowing from the Pindus range. Your journey continues with a drive through the fantastic landscape of giant pillars reaching up to 650m.above sea level and stop at the Agios Stephanos Monastery. Enjoy an unforgettable view as you walk to the entrance. The monastery, originally built in the 14-15th Century, was entrusted to the nuns in 1961 and has now been made easily accessible by a permanent bridge. After touring the site, your excursion continues to the Varlam Monastery, built in the beginning of the 16th Century. A panoramic drive around Meteora’s formidable pinnacles and Kalambaka town will be followed. You will then have a relaxing lunch and once you have finished, you will go back to your coach and drive to the port of Volos.

Reviews:

We had the very best tour in Volos and were extremely pleased with our tour guide and the very competent driver!!!The vehicle was most comfortable and we appreciated the space. I did wish however that although the meal was good we would have preferred to visit a smaller local taverna.
Thank you so much!
Regards Yvonne
