Divani Meteora Hotel
Travel Blogs from Kalambaka
The girls I was rooming with last night didn't get home until 2:30am and had to wake me up so I could let them in which was a bit annoying since I was sleeping so well! Feeling a lot brighter this morning and breakfast looked delicious, I just had a bread roll to see how I go though. Not too long of a driving day today, only about 5 hours. We had our service stop at a petrol station with a fast food chain attached and I got some plain crackers to have while Si got a yummy ...
Our visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Meteora in northwestern Greece was already circled as a highlight but it's one of those places that you just can't really have a feel for until you get there. That's much the way I always felt about the Grand Canyon before I saw it; there's a lot more to it than you realize. Lynn and I have visited many Orthodox monasteries in our travels and I wouldn't say that we saw anything here that we have not seen before with regards to ...
... 8217;s response was “let’s not talk about that”. In fact, it was just over 100..peanuts for us.

... many flights of stairs. This monastery was named after the first monk that was here on the mountain. His name is Valaarm, who would of thought. The monastery was like nothing I have never seen before. One, the view that we had was unbelievable. I was almost tempted to become a nun so I could live there! ;) The monastery looks like it is literally built into the mountain. As we toured the building we learned about different ways the monks live and ...
... through valleys. I hadn't realized that Greece had so many mountains so it was really awesome to see. We even saw a turtle crossing the road. Random. We arrive in meteora around 230 and checked into our hotel. Hotel Sydney. Probably the worst room in the place, our view was of their garage, rather then stunning meteora. The owner also was really grumpy, and when I asked for our air conditioning remote, he told me not to be like the Jewish people from the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsDivani Meteora Hotel Kalambaka
Probably should give this one 5 stars but it has no free wifi...not even in the lobby and there was a mysterious leak from the ceiling above the bathroom door...presumably somebody overflowed the bath above us. Other than that, it's very nice and the location close to town is very convenient.
