You probably received advices to ride around the island they are mainly solid however if you'd like to climb to Aya Yorgi to enjoy the scenic view, visit the church and drink a cup of tea my advice is to ditch your bikes and hike. A semi-long steep road leads to top of the hill. It is really hard to... 更多
It's a small curch on top of a very steep hill, but I'd recommend it as it is a nice change of pace from the mundane things of Büyükada. Also, the restaurant is definitely worth the visit!
OK. To get there is a whole story. You either walk a loong walk (couple of hours) and then walk a bit more to reach it (1km uphill) or you take the horse cars (a bit expensive). Once on top, the view is magical. The church is untouched by islamic elements. It is a shame to see that this is... 更多

I'm Christian so maybe is a reason why small church is nothing special for me and it doesn't deserve for walking 40min to up just for it. For me the restaurant (food and cold drinks) was more like a gold then this church.

The prices aren't too bad and it's a pleasant way to recover from the climb in relative peace. Word of advice- don't take your bicycle up the hill if you've hired one in the village. Instead,... 更多
I read about the beautiful views from the monastery at the top of the hill on the island of Buyukada, so I headed for Kabatash early one morning (apparently too early for the fast boats, so I had to take a slower one), and the boat ride took about 90 minutes (I think). I rented a bicycle just off the... 更多
