Via Egnatia Road, we will travel to Stavros, Halkidiki, through the incredibly beautiful landscape of Cholomontas Mountain here we will arrive at the bridge of Xerxes, built in 480 BC. We will see where a canal was built from Nea Roda to Tripiti, so Xerxes could avoid the cruise of Mount Athos and reach the opposite side much faster.
We will continue our tour to Ouranoupoli, from where we will journey by boat to Mount Athos. Here you will discover the largest monastic community in Greece, home to 20 Orthodox monasteries. After the cruise, there is free time for swimming and lunch. On our way back to Thessaloniki we will travel through Gerakini and Moudania.
We look forward to guiding you on your next boat tour to Mount Athos!
