In the prefecture of the fertile valley of Thessaly, lies the town of Kalabaka renowned for Meteora. The dramatic rocky pinnacles of Meteora with their thriving cliff top monasteries are a sight to behold. One marvels at the audacity of the monks who first dared to perch simple shelters on the tiny summits. Combine your visit to the region with an active day or two at the artificial lake Plastiras or the mountainous region of Pertouli.
