Day Trip to Dion and Mountain Olympus from Thessaloniki

35 reviews
Leave Thessaloniki for a day and discover ancient Dion and Mt. Olympus without the stress of public transport or hire cars. Travel to Dion Archaeological Park, home to city ruins dating from the 6th century BC; and explore its relics and museum. Next, visit Mt. Olympus, the home of the gods in Greek mythology, and walk in the Epinea Gorge to absorb the scenery surrounding the peak before returning.

There are lots of churches in Thessaloniki and we visited many of them on our self guided walking tour of Thessaloniki. We particularly loved the Byzantine churches. There is some argument as to whether this one, the church of Profitis Ilias, was built in either the 14th or 15th century. Thessaloniki is a good town to do a walking tour and this should be included on your route. We walked all round Thessaloniki from the port, where we arrived on a cruise ship.

Externally the church of Prohet Elijah is outstanding, but inside it's a little bit disappointing that there isn't much decoration. However, I love that simplicity!

Prophet Elias church is a beautiful church externally, but unfortunately it does not have many mosaics inside. It feels quite empty. But it has a very nice collection of icons that I really enjoyed looking at.

while an imposing and impressive building from the outside, with some last remnants of frescos, there is little left inside worth the visit. not a top-ten site therefore, but maybe on your way walking the city. and then worth a short stop anyway.

Perhaps not as much visited as some other nearby churches such as Agias Dimtriou, Osios David, and St Nicholas Orfanos , this impressive 14th century church deserves a visit. You can call in as part of your tour of churches in the Ano Poli (Old Town), Thessaloniki. The church has an imposing dome over 5 M in height and the architecture is a local one called agioreitiko or athoniko. For that reason alone, and the amazing brickwork 'arches', it deserves a visit.
