Is Athens - Meteora - Corfu too long of a trip?

Me and a friend are thinking about going from Athens to Meteora, spend two nights there, and then move to Corfu. Did anyone do this before? Is it a too long trip? From Athens to Meteora I know the train is about 5 hours, I just did not manage to get the real time to make it from there to Corfu.

    Hello Sergio! You can stay at village Kastraki at Meteora (useful info at http://www.enjoythessaly.com/destinations/prefecture-of-trikala/meteora ). If you want to go to Corfu you can take the bus from the city of Trikala or from Kalambaka every Wednesday at 12:00 and Sunday at 14:45 (departure times from Trikala). The duration is about 4 hours and 30 mins. Information - reservation 0030 24310 73130 (Trikala bus station) and 0030 24320-22432 (Kalambaka bus station)

    Hi Sergio,

    To go from Kalambaka to Corfu you will have to take the bus from Trikala. You can see the available routes at http://ktel-trikala.gr/?module=default&pages_id=26&lang=en Make sure you call them to confirm the dates because from what I see, they only have 2 routes per week. Also you can find the routes from Kalambaka-Trikala at http://ktel-trikala.gr/?module=default&pages_id=28&lang=en

    The bus from Trikala to Igoumenitsa takes about 3 to 3:30 hours and the ship to Corfu about 1:30 hour. You can find the ship routes at http://www.vrisko.gr/en/ferry-routes-greece/igoumenitsa/corfu/2014-05-06/

    It is a nice trip to have, I'm sure you will love it :-)

    kilometer-wise it's not very far if you rent a car and drive. Not sure about the bus /train connections though. Having said that I am not sure you need two days in Meteora (for the main sightseeing that is), although the setting is indeed spectacular if you want to walk around/hike. You may want to split the time with one night in Metsovo which is a very beautiful village on your way to Corfu.
