Amorgós’ cliff-clinging monastery of Hozoviotissas has one of the most spectacular locations of any in Greece. Only a few monks live in the cavernous 50-room monastery but the view from their terrace aerie might make you think they had all flown to heaven from this very spot.
This lively port is the entry-point for the remarkable archaeological site of Ephesus. Broad, paved streets still bear the marks of chariot wheels. There is much to see in the city which once welcomed Antony and Cleopatra including the façade of the Celsus library, the amphitheatre, and numerous temples dedicated to the Gods.
From the shore, it is a big rock sticking out into the sea. Then, you pass over the causeway and through an iron fortress gate, and suddenly, the town of Monemvasia is before you, a perfectly preserved Byzantine fortified port, once 60,000 strong, now home to just a few hundred. You can readily see why the name Monemvasia means single entrance.
In the rocky hills above, ancient Byzantine ruins loom over the town, while below a maze of red tiled roofs and twisting alleys hide tavernas and cafes and the home of revered Greek poet Yannis Ritsos.
One of the most cosmopolitan of all the Greek islands, Mykonos is a contrast of rocky hills and beautiful beaches. Hora, the capital, spreads around a colourful harbor, a popular meeting place, overlooked by a variety of tavernas, in which fishing boats nestle side by side with luxury yachts.
This serene island is known as the site of the apocalyptic revelations of Saint John the Divine. The cave where he is said to have lived is now the site of the monastery of the Apocalypse. It houses priceless icons and manuscripts in its treasury.
Your dinner on the first day, breakfast and dinner on the second day, breakfast for the last day, and three meals per day for remaining days of the retreat are included in the price.
