Embark on a sailing journey to the "Holy Mountain" of Mount Athos, an UNESCO World Heritage site. Your adventure begins with a drive to Ouranoupolis, known as the "city of the heavens." From here, board your boat for a scenic cruise along the coastline. The best way to view the old monasteries of the region is by sea. See what is considered by many to be one of the most important religious sites on earth. 2000 monks from across Greece currently reside in the monasteries on Mount Athos. The site is known as the "Holy Mountain," an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Since 1054 and the Byzantine era, Mount Athos was recognized as a significant religious site. Admire the natural beauty of the coastline and the stunning architecture of the monasteries. Then, when you return to Ouranoupolis, visit a local tavern for a delicious Greek lunch with wine.
