"Walking in the Ancient city of Dion is a wonderful experience for two reasons. One for the majestic ruins of this city telling the story of Ancient Greece. But then you realize that you are in a beautiful park where the nature complements perfectly the culture! We were there with my son 8 yo and fri..."ends and we enjoyed the walking and had a picnic! Not to miss! Go to the small museum afterwards, you can see much more of the statues there and kids can have hands on experience with archaeology!

"Dion is within a very short drive from Thessaloniki which offers an excellent insight into the ancient history of the region. Apart from the museum and the archaeological site, you can also enjoy magnificent views of Mount Olympus. The site, however, would benefit from a few more signs and informati..."on about what the ruins represent, so be prepared with some background information before you get there. Overall, worth the visit.

"Dion is an ancient city in Katerini District, Greece. Now it's not a city but an archaeological museum where you can see ruins of old temples, gymnasium, bath etc. Very strange feeling of huge historical museum but without walls, in the open air. You can see very well preserved mosaic, frescoes, scu..."lptures etc. and archaeologists working nearby. We came there early in the morning at 9 A.M because of heat and sun. The city is situated on the open platform, that's why heat is exhausting. If you travel in summer, I recommend 1) to take bottle of water; 2) suitable footwear ( not slippery) because it is necessary to walk a lot on cobblestone and ground road: 3) to wear something protecting head from the heat; 4) to order excursion ( it is better when someone walk you around the city and tell you the story). Because it is archaeological museum there is small entrance fee. You can also buy souvenirs and postcards at the entrance.
