01First day – 23.05.14
Arrival at Thessaloniki international airport “Makedonia” and direct departure for the Mount Athos Area (1 ½ h). Check in at the“Ammouliani” hotel – located by the sea. In the evening take part in the Mount Athos Area Kouzina “Fishing Feast”. Ammouliani has the largest fishing fleet in central Macedonia. This means that the fish offered in the island’s restaurants is caught on the same day. Besides, in Ammouliani if a fish was caught yesterday, it is not considered fresh! That’s why residents welcome visitors to their fishing boats, where they teach them fishing techniques. The catch comes to the port, where it is grilled on the spot and, accompanied by Athonite tsipouro and wine, it becomes a joyful celebration of the sea!
