My name is Theofilos Russos. I grew up not far from Mount Athos and have been privileged to visit there over 100 times.
Each year, I take a group of men on a pilgrimage to Mount Athos, Meteora and many other places. I invite you to join me on an unforgettable journey. We’ll bring blessings for our homes and ourselves. We’ll be able to absorb the wonder and beauty of the monasteries, some of which are over a thousand years old. Departing from Los Angeles, we will stop for a short time in Germany to change planes to take us directly to Thessaloniki. Upon arrival in Thessaloniki, our bus will take us to our excellent hotel for an overnight stay. In the morning, after a delicious buffet breakfast, our bus will take us to Ouranoupolis. The next morning, we’ll board the ship for Mount Athos.
Besides the monasteries where we will overnight, we’ll visit many other monasteries and sketes. Then we will return by ferry to Ouranoupolis.
Our bus will then take us back to Thessaloniki and our hotel. In the morning, we will tour the City of Thessaloniki. In the evening, our farewell dinner will be at an excellent taverna where excellent food, and Greek wine will be the order of the evening. We leave for home the following morning.
The cost of the trip will include airfare, hotels and most meals, the ferry to and from Mount Athos, the guide and the bus or van, as well as the gratuities given to each of the monasteries.
My friends, you who come on this pilgrimage to Mount Athos will surely find it such an unforgettable experience you’ll want to return again and again.
