An old and beautiful church that is worth seeing. It takes about half an hour to an hour. Unfortunately, the main hall of the church seemed to be closed and could not be visited.

Easily accessible. On the top of a hill overlooking the Black Sea. By the time we visited it, the church was closed but we were able to see the frescoes in the entrance. The surrounding is a beautiful garden with good sea view.

Hagia Sophia is open 9am to 7 pm. Imwould try either very early to beat the cruise crowd or late afternoon. Worth the visit at anytime.
