Summary

We follow in the footsteps of conquerors and cross mountainous landscapes while exploring the Northern Greece’s Kingdoms and their successors. Three conquering kings arose from northern Greece, Pyrrhus of Epirus 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. 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 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 below the great tumulus of Verghina
  • See the vertiginous, 14th century Meteora monasteries, each on a separate crag
  • Spend a day exploring wonderful ancient sites of Thessaloniki
