9 tips for visiting Meteora, Greece

9 tips for visiting Meteora, Greece

1) Why visit Meteora?

Meteora and its monasteries were on my bucket list for a few years after seeing incredible pictures of the place on the internet. It attracted me with its fantastic natural beauty and human created monasteries on top of rocks. The gigantic rocks of Meteora are perched above the town of Kalambaka, at a maximum height of 400 m (1200 ft.). The summits are decorated with historical monasteries, included in the World Heritage List of UNESCO. Only 6 of them have made it through the centuries, from an initial estimated number of 24. Mostly dating from the 14th to the 16th century, monasteries were built by monks who were previously hermits living in individual caves. These monks took months and years to carry the construction material to the top of rocks, using ropes, folding ladders, nets, and baskets.

It was a few years ago when I was in Abu Dhabi and had my tea at the Emirates Palace Hotel. It is a lavish luxury spot in Abu Dhabi considered to be one of the few 7 star hotels in the world. It is rumoured to be one of the most expensive hotels ever built. The part of the culture and the heritage of Abu Dhabi, this multi billion achievement building has become a landmark of the city. Non guests are welcome to tour the public areas. You can enjoy the decadent lobby and some of the lovely landscaped grounds. The lobby is marble and has beautifully decorated golden domes. There are often free exhibits and some beautiful antiques to check out. Glamorous by day and night, Le Café at the Palace is shortlisted for “Best Café in Abu Dhabi” and “Best Afternoon Tea in Abu Dhabi” from year-to-year with its vast menu featuring exquisitely crafted delicacies and artisanal pastries and cakes complemented by coffee and herbal infusions from around the world.
