The names are not familiar. Acroto could be Akrathos but lies on the Lavra spot. Stelar is on the map where you would expect Vatopedi. Oliforio is maybe Dafni. Who can identify the places on the map?

    Dear Friends,
    1) I have a doubt about the number of days that a non-orthodox can stay in the Holy Mountain, 4 days? or 4 nights?

    2) Can visitors sleep in a skiiti ana?
    3) Can take a boat from Iviron to Lavra? Any one knows timetables?

    The Trip to Athos in 2007 is Fantastic!!!!! I enjoy very much each post.
    Thanks
    José

    You get a permit for 3 nights.

    2) Can visitors sleep in a skiiti ana?

    yes, but book in advance. We had to walk another hour to Paulou because Sk. Anna was full (in May 2007).

    3) Can take a boat from Iviron to Lavra? Any one knows timetables?
    Boat is not sure, take taxi.
