Central Macedonia

4.4
Relics of many ancient civilizations lie scattered across Central Macedonia, one of Greece's most visited regions. Well over three million sightseers come through this diverse region of traditional villages and rugged mountains each year, drawn by its colorful history and rich culture. Although for most foreigners Central Macedonia remains synonymous with the golden days of Alexander the Great, this ancient land once served as the favorite stomping ground for Romans, Byzantines, Slavs, and Turks. These peoples mixed and clashed, enriching the region's heritage with their architecture and art. Central Macedonia also includes a large peninsula known for its secluded coves, sandy beaches, and a World Heritage-listed monastic community over a thousand years old. Central Macedonia is in Greece. Add Central Macedonia and other destinations to your itinerary using our Greece trip planning website, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
