Full description
Accompanied by our professional guide the day starts by leaving behind the Thermaic Gulf, passing by the lakes Koronia and Volvi, heading east through the beautiful route of the Castle of Rentina where the tragic poet Euripides left his final breath. Our first point of archaeological interest is the Acropolis of Ancient Stagera, the birthplace of the worldwide known philosopher Aristoteles teacher and mentor of Alexander the Graat. After the guided tour our next stop is the small town of Ouranoupolis where we will have plenty of time to for shopping and lunch before and after our Athos Cruise. Last stop is the Aristoteles Park, here you get the chance to experiment with the original interactive instruments influence by the inventions of Aristoteles.

Our guide Dimitria was very knowledgable, is interested in so many things and explains very well. Contrary to the description the tour took nearly 12 hours.

la prise en charge à l'hôtel est très appréciée. Le parcours est varié et intéressant. Notre guide était fort sympathique . mais elle ne parlait pas français , ce qui a gâché un peu notre voyage. Comme elle lisait en anglais ses commentaires , il serait souhaitable si possible qu'elle traduise son topo en français et nous le donne à lire. De même , lorsque nous sommes montés dans le bateau pour longer la presqu'île du mont Athos , il était indiqué qu'on pouvait avoir l'explication en français , ce ne fut pas le cas. Nous avons été obligés d'acheter un petit fascicule en français pour suivre ce que nous voyions.

This needs to be publicised differently… we were away just short of 12 hours … just short of 4 hours on a crowded boat full of people on a pilgrimage… a quick visit to Aristotle's birthplace on the way… guide and driver were fine but the boat trip is not a cruise nor can the guide be useful when there’s lots of people on a boat… it states 7 hours but the shortest this would be would be 11…
