Kalambaka

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.
Explore Kalambaka's surroundings by going to Ioannina (Alpine Zone, Kehila Kedosha Yashan Synagogue, &more) and Vrellis Greek History Museum (in Bizani). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Meteora, steep yourself in history at Varlaam Monastery, pause for some serene contemplation at Byzantine Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary, and examine the collection at Natural History Museum of Meteora and Mushroom Museum.

To see photos, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Kalambaka tour planner.
