In this last episode, Joanna Lumley visits Mount Olympus and looks at the stories and legends of ancient Greece. The climb to the top of Olympus is demanding and she rests at a refuge at 2100m. The first official climb to the top was in 1913 and is now home to one of the toughest marathons in Europe. She visits the birthplace of the 9 muses. Then it's on to a fortune telling festival and attends a street party. In Thessaloniki, she tours the city with the mayor. It was once home not only to Turks and Greeks but also to a large Jewish community which was decimated by the Nazis in World War II. She visits a nearby sanctuary for the dwindling bear population, a botanical garden and a number of monasteries before bringing her journey to an end.- Written by garykmcd
