Another good day

Very interesting for anyone who enjoys learning about the history and archaeology of the place they are visiting. Also Mount Olympus I know is very impressive, but unfortunately the rain came that morning, so couldn't see the peak due to clouds. But still an enjoyable day.

Very good day

Very good day at Dion Et at Mont Olympe. We were a small group despite the high season, which was very pleasant to take advantage of the guide's explanations. I highly recommend.
