This was an absolutely unforgettable day to the home of the 12 Gods. From the moment we met at the White Tower to being dropped off we had a fantastic time, made even more memorable by one of the best tour guides we have had the pleasure to meet, the amazing Dimitris. He brought the history of Dion and Olympus to life, both with his stories and his wider meditations on life.
It was good the only problems were, we were in a small full minibus so no social distancing was possible. We got to Dion and had about 40 minutes to look around. It’s quite sparse and large so there just wasn’t enough time to see it all in favour of having a coffee at the cafe nearby. The rest was exceptional especially the waterfall on Mt Olympus.
Absolutely worth it the 3 hours bus trip to Meteora, the Views are really breathtaking, and also really incredible to see how the monks could build those monasteries, our guide was also very friendly and funny and gave us a lot of tips for our Stay in Thessaloniki
A relatively long day to reach the amazing sites of Meteora monasteries as the round trip transportation from Thessaloniki takes 5-6 hours. However, the places are not crowded with rejuvenating serenity. The lunch restaurant also has an amazing view of caves.
Absolutely stunning area to visit and amazing views of monasteries high on rock formations. Worth the journey. Lunch is not included but very reasonable prices in stop off restaurant and food high standard and freshly cooked. Good value trip.
