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.

Visiting the Vlatadon Monastery was high on list of "must dos" while visiting Thessaloniki. I was not disappointed! I visited on a very cold and windy day and basically had the place to myself. The views were amazing and the monastery's history is fascinating. I spent some quiet time in the beautiful chapel reflecting and praying, It was a wonderful visit.

The Monastery of Vlatadon is located on the northern side of Ano Poli of Thessaloniki, close to the castle walls with a magnificent view to the city. The Monastery was established by two monks who were brothers, Dorotheos and Markos Vlatis, which is why the monastery was called after them. By the mid-twentieth century the monastery became a meeting place for scholars and academics of the city. In 1965, the Patriarchal Institute for Patristic Studies was established that has worked closely with the Aristotelean University of Thessalonica. In recent years the Monastery of the Vlatades has been further renovated and expanded.

We walked up here from the port, as we were visiting Thessaloniki from a cruise ship. There are great views over the city. The site is quite large, but most of the buildings were closed to visitors when we were there. There was an interesting small chapel open, also a shop (with mainly religious souvenirs). There are also free toilets. Worth going for the views, if nothing else.
