Stageira & Olympiada Ancient Stageira gallery 1 of 38
The hills of Ancient Stageira beyond Olympiada beach and pier, Halkidiki, Macedonia, Greece at My Favourite Planet

The wooded hills of Ancient Stageira, background left, beyond Olympiada beach and pier.
38 pages of photos and information about
the archaeological site of Ancient Stageira.


Ancient Stageira archaeological site:
open daily 8.30 am - 9 pm. Entrance free.
 
In this gallery we take the short walk (700 metres) from Olympiada village to the entrance to the archaeological site of Ancient Stageira, then amble around the two wooded hills of the site.

You can do this walk in about an hour, but we recommend that you take longer. The place itself is quite beautiful, and the views from the hills over the coast and landscape of north-eastern Halkidiki are spectacular. Don't forget your water bottle.

PLEASE NOTE:

Ancient Stageira at Olympiada should not be confused with the modern village of Stageira, which is 25 km further south, and has no historical connection with Aristotle.

See How to get to Stageira and Olympiada for further information.

Ancient Stageira booklet by archaeologist Doctor Kostas Sismanidis
"Ancient Stageira
the birthplace of Aristotle"


by Dr. Kostas Sismanidis
 
Dr. Sismanidis led the first systematic archaeological excavations of Stageira, which began in 1990.

His illustrated 20-page booklet contains a brief history
of Stageira and Olympiada and provides a useful guide
to the main features of the archaeological site.

The booklet includes a plan of the site
and photos of finds which are in the
Archaeological Museum of Polygyros.

Very little has yet been published about
Ancient Stageira, so this excellent booklet
remains the essential guide for the general
visitor as well as those who wish to gain
a deeper understanding of the place.
Available free in English, German and Greek
from Hotel Germany and Hotel Liotopi, Olympiada.
