Private half day Dion-Olympus from Thessaloniki 2-8 persons

Half day Dion-Olympus

Full Description

We depart to Dion with the bus of Ammon Express at 08:15 from Aristotelous Square & Egnatia Street (at the statue of Venizelos),

The route is 90km and it takes about 1 hour.

We reach the archaeological park of Dion where you have 1 hour and a half to walk around the exterior archaeological site, enjoying a walk back in history. You have the chance to admire the ancient theater of Dion, known for hosting the plays of the ancient philosopher Euripides, for example the The Bacchae, while nowadays hosts every year the Olympus Festival. Afterwards, we visit the unique museum of Dion, where there are based all the findings and statues of the ancient city and later on we admire the magnificent mosaic of the “House of Dionysus” which lies in a chamber next to the museum (open to the public from March-November).

We enjoy our lunch in one of the traditional restaurants of the village and later we continue our trip to Olympus, the house of the 12 Gods, known worldwide for its mythological background. We start a short trekking for 20’ on the foothills of the mountain following the Enipeas gorge. This is a beautiful shady path into the nature, accessible by everyone, where you can admire the wild nature and the river where at the end of it we stop to capture the view of the astonishing mountain (if the weather permits us).

We depart to Thessaloniki at around 15:30p.m, where we return after one hour (16:30p.m) making the same stops from where we started.

*Please be informed that there is the possibility of modifying the schedule of the excursion and adjust it on the current weather conditions. In chance of non favorable weather conditions (mostly during winter season) the short trekking may not be included.

In this chance, it is replaced either by visiting the picturesque village of Litochoro (walk in the main traditional square) or by visiting the Holy Monastery of Saint Dionysus (visit to the old and the new one).
