Our trip starts from Athens, so get ready for the most unforgettable tour you'll experience in Greece!<br>This 2 day tour takes you to some of the most popular highlights of Greece. Along the way I'll give you a lot of info about history, mythology and culture. We'll enjoy our visit to Vergina (Ancient Macedonia), and the Royal tombs of Aigai-Vergina. On our way there, we'll have a couple of stops at Thermopylae and Dion. To save up our energy we'll spend the night in a charming town called Kalabaka (NOTE accommodation is not included. The accommodation for all, plus the driver's, must be done by the travelers), where in the evening we'll have free time for activities etc. <br>The second day we'll visit Meteora and Ancient Olympia/the Ancient "Sacred Forrest". To make this trip even more magical we'll go on a little hiking to a breathtaking waterfall, where we'll be able to take a dip in a near by lake. So don't forget to bring your swimsuits! This tour can be adjusted based on your needs.

Museum has good collection of statues, coins, pottery, tools, and more, all from excavations in surrounding areas. Mosaics from thermal baths and villa are impressive.

Together with the vergina archeological museum. Dion is a great place to see inside museum and outside at the archeological park and the museum is a small diamond. Lots of history over 2000 years ago and great things to share and enjoy the museum and the nearby attractions. It is worth the visit definitely and it is very nice and important museum. You need more 2 hours to see all and visit it slowly and to share your thoughts with others.

What a surprise it was. Beautiful museum with many things to see Jewels,statues,everyday life and many more. You could wonder around the statues that they where in the rooms and not beside a glass and it felt great. I wish more people knew about the superiority of this museum

Your entree ticket covers the museum, the archaeotheke and the archaeological park, so there's value for money for you ! Dion was the sacred city of the Macedonians, at the foot of Mountain Olympos, so the museum houses a lot of significant collections, covering both the Hellenistic and Roman periods. The excavations are fairly recent, only starting in the 1930-ies and the museum was build to house the best pieces unearthed from the necropolis and the sanctuaries and baths of the ancient city. There are some wonderful statues, especially the Dionysos, Isis and Aphrodite and the Asklepios Daughters ; also some really elegant bronze statues and votive & grave monuments (standing stone stelae). Of particular interest, of course, is the water organ or hydraulic organ - an amazing instrument, especially if you keep in mind it was used in the 1st-century BC. The Archaiothiki is a building adjacent to the museum ; it was build 10 years ago, specifically to exhibit the Dionysus mosaic ("the epiphany of the triumphant Dionysus"). It has a gallery upstairs all around the mosaic, so it can be viewed from all sides. Absolutely not to be missed !
