Begin early in the morning from Chalkidiki and arrive by bus to Ormos Panagias, situated in N-E of the Sithonia peninsula in Chalkidiki. Begin your amazing journey, sailing towards the south of the Athos Peninsula, until we reach the south limit, where the highest point is 2.033 m. and continue sailling north, along the western coast. You will have the opportunity to admire from the cruise ship, the mysterious and miraculous place which has been for centuries the center of Orthodoxy and you will find out new information about the history of Mount Athos and 8 of its monasteries. The 'Holy Mountain', which is forbidden to women and children, is also a recognized artistic site. The layout of the monasteries had an influence as far as Russia, and its school of painting influenced the history of Orthodox art. Mount Athos is an Unesco heritage list.
