The north of Greece is a region rich in culture, religious history, natural beauty & culinary delights.
START / FINISH - Thessaloniki
Activity code: GR-North2
Duration: 7 Days / 6 nights
Northern Greece has so much to offer that it is often hard to choose what to do. The region is rich not only in cultural and religious history but also in natural history, with important wetlands, nature reserves, rivers, lakes, forests and national parks. Significant archaeological sites are located a relatively short distance from the city making Thessaloniki an ideal base for exploring the most important cultural attractions of Northern Greece. Last but certainly not least, it is also a culinary mecca of food and wine.
This wonderful holiday is part city break and part guided tour. The itinerary includes all the most famous locations in the north of Greece as listed above, plus a visit to Meteora a little further south. Overall it is a great short holiday to a lesser visited region of Greece. If you or your family have already visited the classical and ancient sites close to Athens and are looking for something a little different then you will not be disappointed by this package.
Accommodation: Hotel Olympia is a contemporary hotel right in the heart of Thessaloniki, housed in a historic building which has been in the same family since 1932. It was refurbished fairly recently to become a boutique hotel with modern minimalist architecture. It has ninety-seven rooms, including nine executive rooms, one accessible room and one suite overlooking the Roman Ancient Market.
This recommended holiday consists of tours in the city and outside with a qualified English-speaking guide. If you are looking to include different places of interest we can also offer a completely tailor made itinerary.
MINIMUM 4 PERSONS.
Not included: In January 2018 Greece introduced an Overnight Stay Tax per room per night, which is payable locally - the amount varies according to the category of the accommodation (i.e. 5* hotel: 4,00€ per overnight per room, 4* hotel: 3,00 € per overnight per room, 3* hotel: 1,50 € per overnight per room)
Why not extend your holiday with a few extra days in Thessaloniki to explore at leisure or head across to the coast for a few days relaxation?
