What To Expect

Panormitis Monastery
Symi island of the Dodecanese, Greece, is situated in southeast Aegean sea and northwest of Rhodes. While touring around the island you will see many churches and monasteries devoted to the Archangel Michael. The Greek Orthodox Monastery of Taxiarchis Mihail Panormitis is the most important on the island and second largest in the Dodecanese after the monastery of St John the Theologian in Patmos.

The monastery is located on the south end of Symi, situated on the seafront of the tiny village of Panormitis. It is a closed-in cove with a small sandy beach, protected by a narrow inlet that opens out into a wide harbour. The mountainous backdrop is covered with pine trees which give the area an ambiance of solitude.

Perfect! Free to do what you want. The time to visit the 2 spots was enough. Beautiful views during the trip to the coast and other islands.
An excellent excursion, with a stop to visit Panormitis Monastery and then three-and-a-half hours in Gialos

We booked our tour with Holidays Essential, and it was well organised and very enjoyable., and very good value for money. We sat on the upper deck of the Dodecanese Seaways ship, which affords splendid views, either in the sun or under cover in the heat of the day. Panormitis Monastery somehow manages to be peaceful despite the crowds of people, and Gialos is exceedingly pretty, with many harbour-side tavernas and cafes for lunch and ice cream. In both places we were free to wander where we wanted to, at our own speed. We were glad that we had booked an excursion that included the monastery A must-do excursion duriing a visit to Rhodes. Special thanks to Roula, in the booking office, who was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.

Die Organisation alles in allem hat gut geklappt, der Ort ist nett, da wir als erstes Schiff am Ort angelegt haben war es noch relativ ruhig. Man sollte die Gäste gezielt informieren das es Busverbindungen zu dem Kloster gibt und von von wo diese abfahren (in unseren Fall auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite der Bucht) und das das Schiff von Symi zum Kloster fährt und man von dort dann zusteigen kann. Wir haben das mit den Busverbindungen wohl bemerkt, leider zu spät, und als wir Einheimische gefragt haben wurden wir nur auf ein Unternehmen hingewiesen (Ich vermute es gibt Verträge) so dass wir den Shuttleservice auf der anderen Seite der Bucht zu spät reg. haben. Wenn man mit dem Schiff von Symi zum Kloster fährt ist es einfach zu voll und man kann sich nichts in Ruhe anschauen. Trotzdem hat uns der Tag gut gefallen.
