Do you want to walk on the same path and enjoy the beautiful scenery and nature, where Alexander the Great ruled? Then visit the Archaeological Park of Dion, which is the most important archaeological site at Mount Olympus in Greece, located in Dion. Half swamp and half ancient city, this park is a playground for both archaeologists and naturalists. The site features two theatres, one Greek and one Roman. The Dion Archaeological Park is home to several sanctuaries as well, especially, the Egyptian Goddess Isis. The sanctuary is accessed by a raised walkway and is almost completely submerged. It consists of three small temples. started as the sacred seat of Olympian Zeus, then as a Roman colony. Finally, as a bishopric in the Christian era, the site was rediscovered in 19th and 20th centuries. You will feel as if you are totally in a forgotten city, as the city monuments have been restored and left in their original locations.

Dion Archaeological Park Reviews & Ratings
Macedonian ancient great & holy city ruined at 5th cent. A. C. by a great earthquake . Proving that Macedonian kingdom was part of Greece having the same Greek blood, the same religion, and the same ethics-way of life. Ομόαιμον, ομόθρησκον, ομότροπον.
Good explainations in the museum and in the park as well. There are fresh water fountains all over the park 😀
The park and the museum is interesting. You can visit both for 8€.
Gorgeous architecture, really nice place to just be. However, we were assured just the park was free, on arrival we were charged €8 for the two of us . Not a rip off, just annoying when told its free.
A unique historical site. Head to the museum afterwards to see the removed statuary. The Sanctuary to Isis is my favorite part..
