  • exceptional. Take the metro to the Aghia Marina terminus, then one of the buses that continues on Iera Odos Route de Corinth. Stop in front of the Monastery where the bus makes a small hook and return to cross the main road at a red light to avoid an early death. Admission is free. Byzantine art.Magnificent and not mentioned by tourist guides.

  • If you love Orthodox mosaics that rival the beauty of those in Istanbul visit the Monastery of Daphni. I spent 2 hours here this morning. Few visitors. Had the church interior to myself for 15 minutes...  more »

  • It's a a pity that the church is not used as a place of pray. It lost atmosphere of such places..I expected something completely different
  • Must see for those who want to understand the Byzantine Mosaic art a bit better. Free entry. Very friendly information office. If you want to spend a few moments away from downtown crowds, this is the place to sit down for a while.
