If you only get to visit one of the monasteries, choose this one. It is easily accessible but also offers breathtaking view. The monastery itself has a very interesting history and unique beauty! It also has a small museum, which is worth a visit, and...More
Whether you want to visit the monastery to pray or learn about Greek history or just admire the view, it ιs a really unique place and a jaw-droping experience. There is a ticket to enter the monastery (Greeks don't pay!) and you could see the...More

The is not a sustainable tourism experience - it’s expected everyone drives. The overall experience is denuded as such but until a major change from the local authorities is initiated (e.g. park and ride) then it’s what it is. Some cycle, but the average Greeks (sadly esp. taxi drivers) are not known for road sense and respect for pedestrians or any other road users, and so it’s an experience.... m
