Thessaloniki Yesterday and Today

Immerse yourself in the history of Thessaloniki, wander through the market and discover its cafés and shops with this walking tour.

In the market, the colourful stalls and the din of loud stallholders hawking their wares will transport you to what can seem like an oriental bazaar. Enjoy a snack in a traditional tavern to refuel for more explorations or relax while savouring an ice-cold frappé.

Mount Athos Afternoon Cruise
Excursions & day trips

Mount Athos Afternoon Cruise

Often referred to as the ‘Holy Mountain', Mount Athos really is a sight to behold. With access restricted, a cruise around the coast of Mount Athos is the best way to see the UNESCO-listed complex of monasteries that cling to the cliffs. And as one of the oldest surviving monastic complexes in the world, its history is truly fascinating. Sit back on board and listen to the commentary as we sail as close as possible to its shores, taking in the vistas all around and viewing eight of the twenty monasteries. Towering 2,000m before you, the steep slopes of Mount Athos make for a cruise with a difference.

The Holy Mountain Cruise Ticket

When it comes to national treasures, Mt Athos is right up there with the Acropolis in Athens. It's the world's one and only monastic republic, ruled over by the black-robed monks of its medieval monasteries. As such, access to it is restricted, with all women forbidden to set foot on its shores. All of which makes this cruise the best – and only – way to see it.Sit back and soak up the sun as your boat sails along the peninsula, giving you close-up views over the monasteries, which are literally perched on the cliffs. It's a fascinating glimpse into the monks' secret world.And you can't miss the actual Mt Athos, or Holy Mountain, rising up just over 2,000 metres from the peninsula's southern tip – it's a pretty inspiring sight. Later, your boat will arrive at Ouranopoli, where you'll have time for lunch before sailing home.
