Departure from Thessaloniki at 08:30. Via Egnatia Road, to Stavros, Halkidiki, and through the incredible beauty of Cholomontas Mountain, we will arrive at the bridge of Xerxes, from 480 BC. The canal was built at the point from Nea Roda to Tripiti, so Xerxes would avoid the cruise of Mount Athos and reach faster at the opposite side. We will continue to Ouranoupoli, from where, by boat, we will make a cruise of Mount Athos to discover the largest monastic community in Greece.
Cruise Duration 3 hours.
After the cruise, free time for swimming and lunch in Ouranopoli.
At 17:00 we depart for Thessaloniki through Gerakini and Moudania.
The tour will introduce us to the Orthodox Monasticism of Greece.
