The Birth place of Alexander the Great is the North of Greece, known as Macedonia.
Thessaloniki part of Macedonia, is just 520 Klms north of Athens and is the second largest city of Greece. Built near the sea (at the back of the Thermaikos Gulf), it is a modern metropolis bearing the marks of its stormy history and its cosmopolitan character, which give it a special beauty and charm.
Halkidiki just one hour outside Thessaloniki, is a breathtaking combination of blue and green. Shaped like Poseidon’s trident, it prongs jut out into the Aegean Sea. Lush green forests extend all the way to the beachfront where reflections of golden sunlight add sparkling hues to turquoise waters. Long stretches of beautiful ever-changing shoreline, unique archaeological sites, world-renowned Christian monuments, lesser-known natural wonders and man-made masterpieces have all helped shape the region’s diverse identity, made even more interesting by the rich local culinary and cultural heritage.
