AGION OROS – ATHOS
Mount Athos has been known for its continuous Christian presence and its historical monastic traditions which date back to the Byzantine era. Today, over 2,000 monks from many countries live an ascetic life, isolated from the rest of the world.
Although Mount Athos is legally part of the European Union, the Monastic State's authorities regulate the free movement of people and goods in its territory. In particular, only males are allowed to enter.
A cruise constitutes a unique experience, an ideal way for both men and women, to approach and admire the monasteries in close proximity. The ship moves along the coast line of the Athos peninsula, so you can get the chance to clearly see the monasteries.
Our Athos Cruise departs from Ormos Panagias and lasts 8 hours.
