Ouranoupolis Holidays

Ouranoupolis holidays

- Transfer time 2½ hrs -
(not including any waiting time for the ferry)

The small town of Ouranoupolis is known as ‘the gateway to Athos’. It is a busy little place, where monks and priests mix with tourists, including pilgrims and walkers, and the souvenir shops are heavy on religious icons. There are plenty of tavernas and small ferryboats service the Athos monasteries, which men need a permit to visit (we can assist with this). The landmark Byzantine tower is now a fascinating small museum.

Holidays In Ouranoupolis

Wherever you stay on Athos we would highly recommend the cruise along the western Athos coastline to view the monasteries from the sea. These operate daily from Ouranoupolis and take around 4 hours.
