This is how I had to dress to enter the monastery. Long skirt that touches the shoes, high socks, long sleeved blouse that buttons up and scarf that coveres neck and head. I felt like beached whale because I have about 3-5 layers of clothing on as I intended to take off the outer layers when we left. I was a bit bulky but still comfy, the scarf was a hottest part. But a little heat was worth the beauty I saw everywhere and all that I learned about a Greek Orthodox Monastery. DH and I are going back later, he wants to see the incredible workmanship and I want to see the gardens in bloom. Such a beautiful place.
