Summary

We follow in the footsteps of conquerors and cross mountainous landscapes while exploring the two northern kingdoms of ancient Greece and their successors. Three conquering kings rose from this area, Pyrrhus of Epirus from the Ionian coast, and Philip II and his son Alexander the Great in Macedonia. Epirus boasts famous sanctuaries and monuments to victory, while palaces, houses, painted tombs and exquisite pebble mosaics survive at the Macedonian cities of Verghina and Pella. We travel to towering Meteora, deep in the Pindus Mountains, where sky-scraping Byzantine monasteries perch on pinnacles of rock - built as a means to withdraw from the world, and we see the Roman imperial grandeur of Thessaloniki.

This tour of Northern Greece is full of fantastic archaeological sites, marked over the centuries by a cornucopia of peoples and cultures.

Tour highlights:

  • Visit the richest ancient burial ever found in Europe – the tomb of Philip II – and its extraordinary museum
  • See the vertiginous 14th century Meteora monasteries, each perched boldly on a separate crag
  • Spend time exploring the wonderful ancient sites of Thessaloniki and its important museums
  • Explore ancient Pella, the capital of Macedonia and famous birthplace of Alexander the Great
