                                            THESSALONIKI
          Thessaloniki, the capital of Macedonia, land of Philip and Alexander the Great, offers all the
          attractions and facilities of a modern coastal city whilst preserving its glorious and illustrious
          past. Numerous major international and local exhibitions and conventions are held annually at
          the Hellexpo Exhibition Center situated within the city. Along with the Byzantine museum and art
          galleries, the archaeological museum houses the golden finds from the royal tombs at Vergina, where the
          excavation site has become an impressive new museum. A choice of resort conference hotels is found on
          the Chalkidiki peninsula which is shaped like Poseidon’s trident. The peninsulas of Cassandra, Sithonia and
          Mount Athos meet the sparkling Aegean Sea to the South. The area has unique characteristics ranging
          from long sandy beaches, remote monasteries clinging to the side of towering mountains, historic sites,
          superb scenery, vineyards, wild flowers and scented pine forests. Thessaloniki and Chalkidiki offer all
          types of popular leisure activities including golf, yachting marinas, water sports and horse riding or visitors
          may choose individuals or group excursions. As the sun sets, delegates may visit the casino, musical shows
          and concerts; enjoy a variety of restaurants, local tavernas and bars where they may taste the famous
          local wine.

          In this quaint fishing village, you will have the chance to eat in one of the small taverns, go for a
          swim, or to shop. Here you will see the Byzantine Tower and perhaps have the opportunity to admire
          the traditional method used to make hand woven carpets. Depart Ouranoupolis for the return trip to
          Ormos Panagias.

          7. Meteora tour
          A highlight of your stay in Greece will be a visit to the Meteora Monasteries. We will travel along
          the coast where you shall view Mount Olympus, the mythical residence of the twelve Gods. En route,
          there will be a 20-minute coffee break in the scenic Valley of Tempi and then on to Kalambaka,
          traveling through Larissa and Trikala for an optional lunch at the foot of the cliffs. Following lunch,
          there will be a brief sightseeing tour of Kalambaka. Then on to Meteora, a geological miracle which
          must actually be seen to be believed. We shall visit two of the fabulous monasteries perched high
          upon the steep rocks. Each monastery possesses a vast richness of frescoes, icons and intricate
          carvings.

          Important notice: For entering the monasteries, appropriate clothing is required. Ladies must not wear short
          skirts and must have long sleeves. Men are not allowed to wear shorts. On our return trip, there will be a coffee
          break in the Valley of Tempi.
