Pieria - Olympian Riviera prefecture is the region where you can combine your mountain holidays with a vacation by the sea. Not only will you find the Thermaic coast enchanting, you’ll also admire Olympus, the mountain of the Gods. Pieria is thickly forested, with plane trees, pines, poplars and firs.

It is located in Central Macedonia and borders with Imathia in the north, Larissa in the south, Kozani in the west, while the east of the prefecture overlooks the Thermaikos gulf. This prefecture has experienced a boom in tourism during the recent years. The main attractions of Pieria are the spectacular beaches along the coastline and the home of the Gods at the peak of Mt. Olympus.

Pieria - Olympian Riviera Today

The coast of Pieria is unique because of the vast expanses of sandy beaches that you can find there. They extend for over 70 km, from the resort of Nei Pori, skirting the fringes of the mythical slopes of Mt. Olympus, right up to the village of Methoni and the wetlands surrounding Aliakmonas river. Wide beaches of unspoiled natural beauty, with rich golden stretches of sand interspersed with pebbles and cool groves of pine, lead down to the peaceful blue waters of the warm inviting sea.

Here all the tourists needs are catered for: a cosmopolitan environment and a vibrant nightlife, a unique and complete summer resort with easy and safe access which offers visitors the opportunity to take in all the historical, ecological, rural and cultural sights of the region. The capital of this prefecture, Katerini, lies between the plain of Pieria and Mt. Olympus.

Pieria - Olympian Riviera Perfecture

At Dion, 17 km south of Katerini, archaeologists have brought to light the extensive ruins of the Macedonians’ sanctuary to the Gods. Among the sacred buildings, the following are the most notable: the sanctuary of Demetra, two temples dating to 500 BC, the Asklepieion, and the whole shrine dedicated to Isis, with its idols still standing on their bases. The city of Dion was well fortified by the wall built in the 4th century BC and it had a splendid layout.

Coming back to the present, Leptokaria (23 km from Katerini) has a lovely beach long enough to attract crowds of Greek and foreign tourists each summer. Other seaside resorts are Methoni, Nea Agathoupoli with its splendid fish market, Aghios Panteleimonas with its Venetian castle, Platamonas with sandy beaches and Makrigialos, with the ruins of ancient Pydna.

Finally, on the slopes of Olympus, is the small town of Litohoro (24 km from Katerini), an old summer resort and the starting point for those wishing to climb the legendary mountain. The enchanting valley of Enipeas with its river coming down from Olympus is worth visiting.

The prefecture of Pieria offers the visitor the opportunity to combine beaches and mountains and tourist facilities which are second to none.
