Discover Pieria Full-Day Tour
After a 70 minutes drive from Thessaloniki, you will discover Dion. Lying in the shadow of Mt. Olympus, Dion was the “sacred place” of the ancient Macedonians.
From very ancient times, a large altar had been set up for the worship of Zeus and his daughters, the Muses, in a unique environment: the rich vegetation, towering trees, countless springs, and a navigable river.
In the 5th century B. C, when the Macedonian state acquired great power and emerged onto the stage of history, brilliant athletic and theatrical contests, the “Olympian Games of Dion” were organized there.
In Dion, you can admire the findings of the museum and walk in the archaeological park. During summer you can go to Litoxoro or Platamonas for a swim in the sea.
Located 40 minutes from Dion is an old traditional village called “Palaios Panteleimonas” with an exceptional view where you can admire the local architecture and enjoy a really delicious meal!
