Kalambaka

— 2 nights
The gateway to one of the largest monastery complexes in Greece, the small town of Kalambaka nestles against a landscape of imposing rock formations rising 400 m (1,300 ft) into the air. Nearly leveled during World War II, the town rebuilt and reinvented itself in the post-war period, quickly becoming one of the region's major travel destinations.
Take a break from the city and head to Meteora and Portitsa Gorge. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Monastery of the Great Meteoron, steep yourself in history at Agios Stefanos, take in nature's colorful creations at Varlaam Monastery, and get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum of Meteora and Mushroom Museum.

Few places manage to capture the world's imagination quite like Greece, a land of sun-kissed coastlines, tranquil whitewashed villages, lively seaside towns, and well-preserved ancient sites. One of the world's top tourist destinations since ancient times, the country draws nearly 20 million visitors each year. Athens, the birthplace of Western civilization, continues to attract the biggest crowds and serves as a base for exploring the country and its 227 inhabited islands. Away from its cities, Greece features a picturesque countryside of olive groves, vineyards, and tiny settlements nestled against rolling hills and rugged mountain ranges. Explore the old mainland on foot and discover the islands on a guided boat or ferry tour.

Although for many people Greece remains synonymous with sandy beaches and archaeological sites, the Trikala region proves that the country offers more than just sun-drenched coastlines and ancient sanctuaries. At the heart of the Greek mainland, Trikala contains rolling hills, vast plateaus, deep gorges, and forested mountain ranges. Scattered across this diverse landscape you'll find ski resorts, modern towns, age-old monastic communities, and tiny pockets of traditional village life. The region's eponymous capital city draws the biggest crowds with its old Turkish quarter, Byzantine fortress, and outstanding art museum.
