1The Athonite State of Agion Oros (Holy Mountain) is situated at the third peninsula of Halkidiki. A favourite destination for visitors coming from all around the world to admire the worship and devotion to God and the beauty and authenticity of the natural landscapes.
This holy place is the centre of Orthodox monasticism and it is characterized by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage site. The Garden of Virgin Mary, as the monks call it, is a self-governing part of the Greek state composed of 20 monasteries and other monastic settlements (sketes, cells, huts, seats, hermitages) where the monks live, pray and work ensuring their survival and the maintenance of their living spaces.
Since Agion Oros has banned women from entering it, but has also made the access for male pilgrims difficult, cruises around Mount Athos give you the chance to go on a tour and learn about the history of monastic life and the Holy Monasteries of Agion Oros, as well as admire the miracles of nature and Orthodox religion from a close distance. The unique architecture of the Holy Monasteries of the Mount Athos built on the edge of the mountain in combination with the magnificent landscape of the pristine peninsula, the green trees and the crystal clear blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea will definitely enchant and fascinate you.

The day trip to Meteora is a really worthwhile experience. The high vertical rocks, on which there are monasteries dating centuries back, are awe-inspiring. In this place, you will get in touch with the richness of the Orthodox religion and the wild beauty of nature. It is not only one of the most admirable natural landscapes of Greece, but also one of the most significant attractions of UNESCO which has characterised the monasteries of Meteora as a “Monument of humanity that has to be maintained”.
Both visitors and climbing lovers from around the world arrive to Kalabaka every year to see the Holy Monasteries, go hiking along the green paths of the area and climb the high rocks the same way the monks and eremites once did in order to reach the monasteries. There are also quite a few people who visit Meteora to admire the way that the monks and nuns worship God. Treasures, murals and relics of the Byzantine era that are still extant today will impress you just as much as the magnificent and breath-taking view from the monasteries’ yards.

The Petralona cave is one of the most famous caves in the world due to its age and grandeur. This prehistoric cave, which is located in the Prefecture of Halkidiki and is only 35km away from the city of Thessaloniki, is the place where the skull of “Archanthropus” was found, the oldest European hominid dating back 700,000 years.

Embellished with stalagmites and stalactites in different shapes and shades of red, this cave used to be the residence of our antecedents and was also used as a shelter during the Ice Age. This tour will be unforgettable and will make you admire the human achievements of the Palaeolithic period. You will have the chance to see the tools that cavemen used to set the first recorded fires in history and to hunt as well as a number of other findings.

Do not miss the chance to visit this place as it is considered a very significant turning point of the global history of anthropology and palaeontology. It is worth noting that the temperature in the cave is always 16° C.
