    We visited the monastery and he seemed very nice, surrounded by forests, with some beautiful murals. This is an eleventh-century Byzantine Monastery.

    Although the monastery is a bit far from the center of Athens (at the terminus of the bus 224), this preserves it without doubt the flow of tourists. The result is worth it (45 minutes from bus and 30 market)! Superb, as the monastery... And it allows to get some rest from the Athenian fury.

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.
