Upon arrival you will be met at Thessaloniki Airport and then it's onwards to visit the Royal burial cluster of Philip II (father of Alexander the Great). The museum of the tumulus of Philip II was built over the tombs leaving them in situ and showing the tumulus as it was before the excavations. It's certainly one of the most impressive museums you'll get to visit during your stay in Greece.
At lunchtime you will have your first taste of Greek iced coffee, known here as frappe. This really is an institution in Greece and is readily available everywhere.
In the evening you'll arrive in Nymfaio, one of the ten most picturesque villages in Europe, according to UNESCO. Surrounded by a forest of beech trees Nymfaio looks like it has stepped from the pages of a fairytale book with its sturdy stone houses and cobblestone paths.
You'll have a chance to settle into your guesthouse in the village - La Moara is an imposing mansion, a member of 'Historic Hotels of Europe'. Its interior combines tradition with modern comfort and it is surrounded by a large alpine meadow, gardens and spruce trees.
Dinner this evening will be taken at “Thomas” restaurant/taverna - with more than 40 different dishes daily and a selection of more than 30 cheeses and 520 different wines, the expression “spoilt for choice” is taken to an entirely different level.
