What you can expect

Travel back in time to the days of ancient Greece and Rome at the base of Mount Olympus, the mythical home of the gods. Survey an array of archaeological treasures as you explore the excavated city of Dion, and then discover the serene beauty of the town of Litochoro and Enipea Valley.

Set out from Thessaloniki and travel through the Grecian countryside to the village of Dion, nestled at the foot of the legendary Mount Olympus. With the lofty mountain as your backdrop, learn about its mythical status as the home of the Greek gods, and step into an archaeological site filled with the Greek and Roman ruins of an ancient Macedonian city. Stroll among excavated theatres, villas, and temples, and admire the well-preserved mosaic floor in the grand House of Dionysos.

Afterward, pay a visit to the neighbouring archaeological museum, where you can peruse the wealth of millennia-old artefacts unearthed from the site. As you scope out statues, coins, and even a hydraulic water organ, your guide shares insights into daily life in Dion long ago.

Next, you visit Litochoro, a traditional village also nestled beneath Mount Olympus. Here, take time to wander its quaint streets and find lunch on your own. End your tour on a beautiful note with a stroll through the lush Enipea Valley before heading back to Thessaloniki.
