Kalambaka — 19 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.
Explore Kalambaka's surroundings by going to Ioannina (Alpine Zone, Iera Moni Agiou Nikolaou Filanthropinon, &more), Metsovo (Monastery of Agiou Nikolaou, Metsovo, Averoff Gallery of Modern Art, &more) and Waterfalls of Anthochori (in Anthochori). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Meteora, contemplate the long history of Agios Nikolaos Anapaphsas, examine the collection at Vrellis Greek History Museum, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Byzantine Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary.
