Meteora lies 350km from Athens and is about a 4 hour drive. There are also trains and buses to Kalambaka, with both taking about 5 hours. Not all the trains are direct, so do check if you have to change. See https://tickets.trainose. gr/dromologia/ for more information or to book tickets. The buses have one change at Trikala. See http://www.kteltrikala.gr for more information. Buses leave every two hours for Kastraki from Kalambaka (€1) from beside the Plateia Dimarhiou fountain. There are four buses a day that go to Meteora which depart from the KTEL station (also picking tourists up at the fountain and bus stops en route) between May and September. Ask at the KTEL office or Visit Meteora office for the schedule. Taxis: Taxis are available at each of the town’s four squares. They cost c. €4 to go to Kastraki, and will take you to all the monasteries (for example, Moni Megalou Meteorou) for around €10. Some drivers speak English, German or Italian, and you can arrange a taxi tour from about €20 per hour.
