It is a popular destination for Greeks vacationing. The G8 Summit and the European Summit were held at this resort a few years ago, very nice resort!

I mentioned that I was to go on a tour to the Mt Athos (around it, not to it!) but we quite literally missed the boat and didn't ...

... Strangely, this is a very touristic city and we couldn't take the special visa to mount Athos because the Pilgrim's office was closed (it closes at 13h!!).
