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 Vrellis Greek History Museum (in Bizani) and Ioannina (Alpine Zone, Ioannina Castle, &more). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Meteora, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Byzantine Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary, don't miss a visit to Theopetra's Prehistoric Cave, and contemplate the long history of Varlaam Monastery.

To see photos, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Kalambaka trip itinerary site.

Kalambaka is just a stone's throw from Trikala. Traveling from Trikala in June, you will find days in Kalambaka are slightly colder (32°C), and nights are about the same (17°C). Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) to allow time to drive back home.
