We went by coach from our hotel (1 hour) and then picked up the ship (pirate ship) for the cruise. If you want to sit on the top deck either take a cushion with you or have a well padded bottom! The seats are atrocious,...More

Cruise to Mount Athos with Tripway travel agency was a great experience! Staff was very polite and friendly. The view of the Monasteries was astonishing at least. I highly recommend it !!!

Mount Athos (or the Holy Mountain) cannot be visited directly, without a visa from the board governing it. Also it has no direct land connection with the rest of the Chalkidiki peninsula. Normally, it can be seen from the see, at a minimum 500 m;...More

Its one of the trips you should do at least once in your life! It is a very quiet place with nice nature scenics and people that the conversation with them can improve the way you think!

Whoever gets a chance to visit the monks republic should go. I have never seen anything like it. Unique spiritual experience, great architecture and unspoiled nature.

It is a very important destination for orthodox people, but also for any people passionate of history. On the entire Mount Athos only the presence of male is allowed. (Visa needed).
