Greece Off The Beaten Path: 249 reviews and 282 photos



The small town of Kalambaka, at the plain of Thessaly, is an important stop on the way to Meteora. It is built at the foot of the majestic gray rocks, at the point where Pinios River flows down from the Pindus range. In Kalambaka one should not miss the cathedral church of the Dormition of the Virgin built on a low hill. The way from Trikala to Kalambaka is through small side-roads lead to many villages and old monasteries. Best known among these is Vytouma Monastery, on a picturesque landscape near Peristera village at the foot of Mt. Koziakas.
