OverviewHide
Departing from Thessaloniki you'll head towards Mount Olympus and Dion Village, the Ancient Macedonians' most important and sacred city. It was here that Archelaos I, at the end of the 5th century BC, first held brilliant festivals during where sacrifices were offered to Olympian Zeus and the Pierian Muses. The festivals also introduced theatrical and gymnastic competitions—the "Olympia ta en Dion"—which were celebrated until around 100 BC. Visit the archaeological museum before proceeding Litochoro village, located on the mountain where the Greek gods once resided. From its position on the eastern foothills of Mount Olympus, Litochoro was able to exercise complete control over the narrow pass between Macedonia and Thessaly. Here, you'll enjoy lunch at a traditional Greek taverna before returning to Thessaloniki and the ship. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
