Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Dion Archaeological Park, Dion 60100 Greece

The distance is 90km and lasts approximately 1 hour.

We reach Dion and we visit the archaeological site, walking back in history and admiring the various findings around the ancient park. The unique statues, the mosaics and the various artefacts that were brought to light are left in their original place and that so, we pass through the same paths as the ancient Greeks used to do. Don’t miss the chance to visit the ancient theatre with the perfect acoustic balance since antiquity. Until nowadays many ancient tragedies are revitalised by modern actors and various festivals every year. Next we visit the modern museum with many statues and findings of the ancient city with more characteristic the Hydravlis (an ancient wind instrument) and the unique mosaic that represents the “Villa of Dionysos” lying in the building next to it.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Litochoro, Litochoro, Pieria Region, Central Macedonia

Later on we head to Olympus, the mountain of the 12 Gods and we enjoy a 20΄ trekking through the Gorge of river Enipeas, above the village of Litochoro. According to the mythology, Enipeas was the most beautiful among the river gods. The path is magical; let the glory of nature, the running waters, the picturesque wooden bridges, the green banks and the small canyons charm you. We have the chance to admire the view of this “divine area” which was chosen carefully by the 12 Olympian Gods as their residence. More specifically, it is said that the residence of the Olympian Gods were the canyons of the mountain, the “mount folds” as they are described by Homer, where their glorious palaces were also located.
Our day trip ends in the picturesque village of Litochoro where we enjoy our lunch in a beautiful traditional restaurant.

Duration: 3 hours
