Dion is a region in the foothills of Mount Olympus and its name is attributed to the ancient god Zeus. He is known around the world because archaeologists have unearthed a very important Macedonian city. The ancient kings of Macedonia had chosen Dion for their summer house, a village on the ruins of which are prominent elements of Ancient Macedonian Culture. Today we can admire the ruins of this civilization (Royal Tombs, Ancient theater, an agora, baths and palaces), the Archaeological site of Dion and the Archaeological Museum of Dion.
