One day excursion to Olympus
You can set off from Thessaloniki for a number of excursions that will introduce you to the natural beauty of Macedonia's neighbouring districts. A short trip to Olympus, known from mythology as the mountain of Gods, is one of the most popular choices you can make.
Countless nature lovers visit Olympus each year to enjoy the natural wealth, walk up and down the slopes and even reach the top of the mountain. Some of the busiest places at the eastern foot of the mountain that draw everybody's attention are Litohoro, the picturesque village of Palaios Panteleimonas with the well-preserved traditional local architecture buildings, the cobblestone paths and the unobstructed view of Thermaikos, the south coastline of Pieria and the Venetian castle of Platamonas.
