Itinerary Overview

We spend a few days celebrating the new year in Kalabaka and Trikala in central Greece. They are both quite small and lovely cities. The food  is very nice as they use local and fresh products, however, be careful as the touristic restaurants can be disappointing.  We wanted to visit the Meteora which is  a rock formation located very close to Kalabaka, where we stayed first in order to start exploring.

The view and the history of this place are unique, that's why we decided to start our tour there. 

Being such a touristy place some restaurants try to take advantage of people, sometimes they exaggerate the prices on the menus, and sometimes the quality of the food is simply not good.

A general recommendation could be to start the day very early in the morning.

It can be a bit chaotic as many travelers frequent this place.
