Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore the “traveler” experience as an alternative form of tourism in this  country. The questions posed concern the attitudes and views of traveler-tourists to three emblematic sites which embody history, culture, and religious tourism. Our sample was found in Veria (Northern Greece)  –specifically, the archaeological site of Vergina, the Apostle Paul’s Tribune, and the Sumela Monastery,  dedicated to the Theotokos (Panagia Sumela) and home to an icon of the latter that originated in currently Turkish land. Both the theoretical part and the statistical analysis of the primary study outline the prospects of  touristic development in the area.

Keywords: Traveler-Tourists, Veria, Vergina, Apostle Paul’s Tribune, Sumela Monastery
