A journey to Byzantine Greece
Castles, Churches, Monuments and Art of the Byzantine Empire
Tailor-made roundtrips for groups
In 330 CE, the Roman Emperor Constantine founded Constantinople, the new capital of the empire. The city was founded on the ancient site of Byzantium and soon became the center of Christianity.
The city of Thessaloniki played an vital role through Byzantine years, by becoming the second-most important city of the Empire. Other cities in Northern Greece, such as Ioannina, Kastoria and Veria, were also developed. The medieval cities of Peloponnese – Mistras and Monemvasia – experienced a period of prosperity and cultural flowering.
Wonders of nature and religious centers are also the Greek Byzantine Monasteries. The impossing monasteries of Meteora and the monastic community of Mount Athos preserve treasures of Byzantine art.
