Mountain
“A unique place on Earth, Mount Athos is a place of calm, meditation and religious exhaltation. Its magestic monasteries are unfortunately visited only by man, but women can enjoy their tour by boat. You will need a special permission, in case you want to stay in one of the monasteries. For information visit the Mount Athos pilgrims site.”

Administrative Area Level 3
“It is a must the period May- September, with countless beautiful beaches, beach bars, taverns etc. It is 30minutes- 2h by car, depending on the part you will choose to visit. You need many days to discover Chalkidiki, so if you decide to visit it I can give you more info. ”

Natural Feature
“Trani Amoudia Beach is one of the best beaches in Sitonia and it is situated nearby Ormos Panagias. Turquoise, crystal clear waters and smooth sand with more enough space to put your parasols and towels are expecting you! There are a lot of cafe near the beach where you can order your drinks! On the northern end of the beach there is a small cape where you can find the remainings of an old Byzathium tower. Archaeologists believe that it used to be the location of the Antique town Sigos. The only tiny disadvantage is the lack of natural shade, so bring your umbrella! Mount Athos Cruises depart from Ormos Panagias. Find more information on Athos Sea Cruises.”
