Ouranopolis Airport Transfers
The idyllic village of Ouranoupolis with its pretty fishing harbour and fortified Byzantine tower is a gateway to the unique monastic community of Mount Athos, on the peninsula of Halkidiki. Its name is translated as ‘City of the Heavens’ in honour of its incredible beauty and the spiritual life which resides there. The landscape is characterized by verdant hills descending to golden beaches and sparkling blue waters, in the middle of which cluster tiny uninhabited islets. The pace of life is gentle and reflective, the natural beauty remains unspoilt and the rich heritage still relatively unchanged. Fishing enthusiasts will love the prolific marine wildlife and sight seers will adore exploring the cobbled streets of white washed houses with their red tiled roofs and the Byzantine tower which has been restored as a museum displaying Christian antiquities. There is a lovely promenade to stroll along from where you can enjoy magical sunsets, and excellent seafood restaurants perched on the shoreline which are the perfect places for an evening meal under the stars. It is no wonder that this little known jewel is a treasured choice for both devout pilgrims and a select-few tourists who are in the know! With Thessaloniki Airport only 2 hours or 115 kilometres away by airport shuttle or airport taxi, there is no excuse not to see it for yourself!
