    We arrive in Thessaloniki, a city that is over 2300 years old. It was built in 316 BC by Kassandros, the Macedonian King, and was named after his wife. Later flourishing under the Byzantine Empire, it was here that Paul wrote his letter to the Thessalonians. Our tour includes the Roman Market, theatre and baths, Arch of Galerius, the City walls, Chain Tower and Citadel.

Then we continue to Kalambaka to visit the famous monasteries perched atop soaring cliffs. Gigantic rocks have been etched by time into a variety of shapes rooted deeply in the ground. The Monasteries with their wooden galleries and corniced rooftops hang precariously over the breath-taking abysses, with the Pindus range at their back. We return to Kalambaka, for dinner and overnight. (B,D)
