Wise to hire a 4wd but could reach the top in a car if driven with care. Outstanding views when you get there. Very peaceful place to be. We went first thing on a morning just to watch the sun rise.

The monastery is situated on Mount Skopos. You can take some lovely pictures, there are benches where you can sit and rest and the place is quiet - all yours, in fact. You get there by an ATV or you can walk - I did....More

We started our 'walk' from the centre of Agrassi. I'm in my 40's and although I like walking on the flat, I don't usually do anything to strenuous. It wasn't easy but the views and experience was well worth it. It took us 2 1/2...More
