Baot trip from Sithonia
along the south coast of Mount Athos

from east to west

Since women are not allowed on Mt. Athos, their closest encounter with the monasteries is a boat trip along the shores. One of these trips goes from Sithonia to Nea Skete at the south east tip of Agion Ooros, and from there along the southern coast line to Ouranopoli.
