On the island of Tinos, the shrine to Our Lady of Tinos is a major landmark, as are the breathtaking Byzantine monasteries at Meteora, one of the most remarkable sights in the Mediterranean. Enjoy a choice of tours in Thessalonica with the Byzantine heritage of the city or the Odeon in Dion – two of the options available.
