About the place:
Alexandros Hotel where we will be staying is situated at the edge of a hilly peninsula called Mount Athos or Holy Mountain with its twenty monasteries, inhabited my male monks.
A visit to Mount Athos is certainly worthwhile, yet it is by no means a simple matter.
Unfortunately, only men are allowed to visit. They have to have a special permit which must be obtained ahead of time (around two months ahead). One must file a petition stating the exact dates of visit and the monasteries one plans to visit and/or stay in overnight.
Visitors take a boat from Ouranoupoli (a village close to the hotel) to Dafni, a small port, and then a small bus to Karies, the capital of the Holy Mountain. From there one has to walk to the monasteries one wants to visit.
Women can go around the peninsula by boat but cannot get off. Even a tour by boat is quite interesting as the landscape and architecture of the monasteries is really awesome.
Please make up your mind as soon as possible, as there is quite a bit of bureaucracy we have to take care of in order to organize a trip to Mount Athos. There will be some cost for the permit and
the boat trip but will by no means be prohibitive. We will be able to give you an estimate in due time.
In the meantime, you can google “Mount Athos” and look at pictures of the place. They are quite impressive!
Please ask us if you have any questions: Subudgreece@gmail.com

Reaching Alexandros Palace Hotel by car
The easiest way to reach Alexandros Palace Hotel is by car. You can rent a car from the Thessaloniki Airport or you can contact us using our car rental partners. From the airport, enter the hotel’s address in the GPS and follow the way towards Polygyros and then Ierissos). Starting from SKG Airport, you pass through Thermi and follow the street signs “Polygyros”. Polygyros is the capital of Chalkidiki and the main village.
After Thermi, there’s a series of villages: Vassilika, Agia Anastasia and finally Polygyros. You pass through Polygyros and when you see the General Hospital of Polygyros to your left hand. Then, you start following the signs “Ierissos, Agio Oros”. Agio Oros means Holy Mountain. After Polygyros, you meet Vrastama, then Plana, Gomati and eventually Ierissos, Nea Roda and the little port of Tripiti. The first hotel after Tripiti is Alexandros Palace. The distance is about 120km.
