My. Athos – Day 1 (am) – Spent 3 days living with the monks in this incredible historic peninsula. With 20 Orthodox monasteries and numerous skites dating back to the 10th century, Mt. Athos is a separate world. The magnificent historic structures, lavish interiors, and unparalleled art (paintings, icons, frescoes, religious objects, furnishings, relics) are glorious and in superb condition. And, the hospitality of the monks added to the thrill of staying there. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
