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 the archaeological site of Dion 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 that were found in the site and listen to the myths and stories about everyday life of the people in ancient Dion. Our next stop is Stavros view point at Mount Olympus, where you enjoy breathtaking views of the so called “ residence of the
twelve Gods” and the endless surrounding area of the Olympus National Park.
Our tour ends in the picturesque, traditional village of Old Panteleimon which is traced back to 14th century till the end of WW2, when it was abandoned. There ,you will have the time to stroll around and discover the graphical narrow stone paved streets, the cute houses, the hidden taverns and coffee shops. After our lunch break, we return back to the meeting points of the tour.
