Price from: 125€ per person

PRIVATE TOUR

Our journey to Myth and History starts by visiting the ancient city and sanctuary of Dion, dedicated to the most important and powerful Olympic God, Zeus, the king of ancient Greek Dodecatheon and the ruler of the universe. The ancient people used to make sacrifices in the name of gods to please or appease them, among them the Great King of Macedonia, Alexander. In Dion’s archaeological site, we see a large temple dedicated to Zeus, and a series of temples dedicated to Demeter and Isis (the Egyptian god with the ability to create and destroy life), unique mosaic floors, and ancient baths and ruins. Moving on, our experienced guide will lead you to the Dion Museum, where you will admire the ancient statues, relics and findings found on the site and listen to the myths and stories about the everyday life of the people in ancient Dion. We continue to the traditional village of Litochoro. Free time for a tour of this picturesque village and for a walk in the valley of Enipeas, on the low slopes of the mountain. Return to the meeting points.
