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.

Regardless, a monk in the 14th century decided that the top of the rock would be the perfect ...
... I checked it out, and it turns out there are just many different acceptable spellings nowadays. The town was built on the location of the ancient city of Aiginion, but the name "Kalabaka," supposedly a Turkish word meaning "powerful fortress," is more recent. Since then, the name has been Anglicized as Kalampaka, Kalambaka, Kalabaki, and Kalabak. I chose to use the "Kalambaka" spelling simply because that's the only one that populated on this website.
On our adventure to meteora we decided to take a back road instead of back tracking to Katerini. This worked out in Danny 's favor as he got to drive windy roads around the mountains. Sometimes I believe he thinks he's a race car driver and my last view is going to be us flying over the guard rails. But he is doing a great job of driving standard and I wouldn't want to be him. I found it a lot easier to navigate in Greece than I thought. Most of the signs ...
