Tyrnavos is located in the Larissa prefecture and the Thessalia region. To the west are the famouse monasteries of Meteora, near Kalambaka (see the Meteora Monasteries Map)

The Greek Mainland is often overlooked as a tourist destination. In some sense, this is the "real Greece," the place where tourists aren't the only concern. From the Meteora monasteries to the wood carvers of Metsovo, mainland greece is is a fascinating place for those inclined toward slow travel.

 

Tyrnavos isn't really a place to hang around if you're not attending the phallus festival, but if you are, you should look for a hotel in Larissa. If you're also planning to visit the Meteora Monasteries, you might look for a hotel in Kalambaka.

There is a bus connection from Larissa to Tyrnavos.
