Our stay at Dellas was splendid. It was far and away the nicest hotel we stayed in during our nine days in Greece. The rooms are sumptuously appointed with quality linens and furniture, and each room has a large balcony where one can spend her/his time gazing at the incredible Meteora landscape (though not every room has a view of the mountains/karsts). The wifi in the hotel seemed strong and steady and there was plenty of parking in front of the building.
The staff was, without a doubt, exceptional. They truly went above and beyond to ensure that each and every guest felt welcome and valued. Each member was a wealth of information on the area; I am confident our experiences in the area were enhanced by the extra insider bits and pieces they shared with us. Their additional effort was even felt in the decadent breakfast that was laid out with care and happily attended to every morning.
Dellas is located right on the border of Kastraki and Kalambakka, so is quite convenient as both are walkable from it. There are a few restaurants very close to the hotel, and there is also a nice walking path to the old town of Kastraki, making it possible to avoid walking on the busy highway.

We spend the morning cleaning, washing and old jobs before driving into town, the Vodafone SIM card and dongle won't work. It connects to the Internet but we can't open any pages! The girl in the shop played around with it for a short while and the called technical services, who couldn't get it to work either. We gave up! We set off for the Vale of Tembi, a massive gorge carved out by the Pinios River between Mt Olympus and Mt Ossa. The roads were very quite, it makes you ...
... quite well marked and most of the track was paved with stones,
but it was very steep and we needed to stop several times. We climbed past the
turn off to the monastery up to the road, where we sat and admired the view. We
met a few other intrepid walkers along the way. Having got up, of course we had
to walk down, but we made it back safely to the hotel well before it got dark.
We decided ...
... how they first got up there, and then had to get all the supplies to the top if this rock to build something. It is just amazing.
We paid our €3 to get into the monastery and spent about an hour walking around inside. They each had a church inside with some incredibly ornate paintings depicting what I assume are stories from the bible. We walked down from Great Meteora to the next monastery called Varlaam. This one was a little bit ...
... tourist attractions/museums. They are also sometimes referred to as the floating cities and if you see them early in the morning when the fog is low they actually look like they are literally floating. They remind me of the cloud world levels that we used to see as kids playing Mario on Nintendo. Also upon researching the place on the internet we found out one of the James Bond movies were filmed on location here, and there is also a book called World War Z based here. ...
... then had a pizza in the restaurant next to where we were parked before heading out of the hustle and bustle of Thesseloniki and towards the peace and tranquility of Meteora. We were a bit late leaving Thesseloniki so it wasn't really feasible to go to Vergina, it just means we're have to come back - shame!!
The last 40kms of road to Meteora is through the mountains on twisty, windy narrow roads and although I'd driven the majority of the way Nick decided that perhaps ...
