Most travelers to Greece visit Athens, maybe manage a four-day bus tour into the Peloponnese Peninsula and across southwestern Greece, and a trip to a Greek island or two. But the North, once home to Philip of Macedon and his son, Alexander the Great, is often skipped entirely. While Thessaloniki, Mount Athos, and Mount Olympus always draw some visitors, there is much more to be discovered in Northern Greece. Nature lovers will find it a paradise, beach lovers will find uncrowded stretches of sand, and lovers of ancient and Byzantine ruins will find dozens of places to visit.
