Trip to Mount Athos Mar 07, 2010
Trips to mount Athos leave from Ormos Panagia, a small port, were there are many ships that offer to take you there.

The average price for a trip is 20 Euros and includes food and entertainment. The ship leaves at 9.30 from Ormos Panagia and returns at 16:30; after passing along mount Athos (the monasteries can only be visited from outside, inside visits require a special arrangement- a pass- and request from your embassy ).

You will have 2 hours time to spend in Ouranopolis (the main village on Mount Athos) shopping, eating or whatever you wish doing.

Along the way i had a magnificent surprise: DOLPHINS!!!!! They chased our ship for 10 minutes and really made my day!!!

Another interesting moment was a traditional greek dancing party on the ship, on the way back; they didn't tell us about this from the start, and i don't know if other ships offered this to their passengers. The 20 Euros were totally worth it!
