A tour of Agios Nikolaos leads visitors through charming neighborhoods with white washed houses, squares with taverns, steep pedestrian streets, and sea as a backdrop, ideal for exploration on foot.
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Mon): pause for some serene contemplation at Panagias Keras Church, delve into the distant past at Lato, then pause for some serene contemplation at Agios Georgios Monastery, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Monastery of Kremasta, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of the Virgin Mary.
