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.
Attractions like Agioi Saranta and Lithaios Central Bridge make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Kalambaka's surroundings by going to Stone Bridge Gate (in Trikala), Filoneikos (in Karditsa) and Metsovo (Averoff Gallery, Folk Art Museum Tossizza Mansion, &more). Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at Varlaam Monastery, take in the spiritual surroundings of Roussanou Monastery, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum of Meteora and Mushroom Museum, and contemplate the long history of Holy Trinity Monastery (Agia Triada).

To find where to stay, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Kalambaka trip planner.

Traveling by car from Agios Ioannis to Kalambaka takes 3.5 hours. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Agios Ioannis in August since evenings lows in Kalambaka dip to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 17th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
