Trip Info

This tour will introduce you to the birthplace of the great philosopher Aristotle, Stagira of Halkidiki and the beautiful mountain villages.

Founded in 655 BC, Stagira was occupied some 300 years later by Philip II of Macedon. The city was later rebuilt when an agreement was made in exchange for Aristotle becoming the teacher to Philip’s son. A great statue of Aristotle now stands in a park that also holds many instruments imagined by the philosopher, including a solar clock, a pendulum and a compass.

On this tour, leaving from Thessaloniki, not only will have the opportunity to visit Aristotle’s Park, you will see the Church of Saint Stefano, visit the village of Arnea, and see characteristic Macedonian architecture. We look forward to guiding you on your next adventure!
