Thessaloniki, the capital of North Greece, is a fascinating city and cultural center, steeped in the Byzantine Era, where you can at the same time enjoy modern life style activities. The Symposium venue is located in the heart of Thessaloniki and easily accessible, offering to the participants the possibility to visit the most important historical sites such as White Tower, which is the symbol of the city, the International Trade Fair grounds, the Galerious Arch, the Rotonda, St. Dimitrios church, the Citadel and many others. Furthermore you can visit some places out of the city such as Vergina, the place where the tomb of Philip 2nd, King of Macedonia and Alexander’s the Great father was found, Dion, at mountain Olympus, where the ancient Greeks wereelebrating their gods and Mountain Athos, where the autonomous Holy community of monks is located.
We wish you to enjoy the Symposium and have a nice stay in Thessaloniki.
