The mosaics are incredible and this is worth the visit. We visited a total of 3 monasteries during our trip including Hosios Lukas and monasteries on Lesvos. These visits enhanced our overall trip and were well worth the time to get to each.

The interior and exterior of the monastery are both excellent. One of the best monasteries in Athens. Remember to look at the Christ Pentocrator. Breathtaking! Fed the stray cats, they are lonely and hungry.

Well, I have not done it yet so I cannot speak from personal experience....but my own research on Google maps shows you would take the Metro Line 3 to the end of the line at Egaleo (just a few stops from Syntagma Square), then connect to the A16 bus. Looks like the bus gets you within a few minutes of the monastery. The transit button on Google maps has served me well in many countries.
