The summits of the multi-peaked Mount Olympus tower over forested landscape. You can imagine Ancient Greek gods casting their lightning bolts onto mortals below. A guided hike takes in views of cascading springs. Inhale air redolent with the blossom of wild cherry trees and gaze up at black vultures circling overhead. From the luxury of your yacht bobbing in the Aegean, admire the monastery-dotted hillsides of Mount Athos. The village of Ouranoupolis guards the sacred monastic community at its peak, whose medieval edict still forbids admission to females.
