A walk in the path of Gods leads you to Litohoro, a small town located at the base of Mount Olympus, Greece’s highest mountain and home of the twelve Gods of Greek mythology. Litohoro is a popular destination for those wishing to climb Mount Olympus. An extended coastal area known as Plaka Litohorou is located east of the town where a wide range of restaurants and cafes are found offering astonishing views of the mountain. Olympus is rich in trees and plant life, supporting over 1700 species, some very rare. You may need warm clothes, even in the summer. During the tour, you will visit the Archaeological Park and the Archaeological Museum of Dion, one of Greece’s most atmospheric archaeological sites. Established to worship Zeus, its monuments are scattered amongst greenery, trees and ponds. A quarter of the park’s 150 hectares is made up of sanctuaries – the oldest (end of 4th century BC) being dedicated to Demeter, two sanctuaries honouring Zeus (Hypsistos and Olympios) and the Sanctuary of Isis accessible over a small bridge. There is also a Christian basilica and public baths and, in the wider area, the remains of Hellenistic and Roman theatres. The city used to be very sacred to the ancient Macedonians and Alexander the Great would make sacrifices to the Gods before starting a new campaign to conquer the world.
