==== KATERINI - SIGHTSEEING

A popular tourist destination, Katerini is close to the sea and to several archaeological sites of great interest such as the ancient city of Dion and the Venetian Castle of Platamon. The beaches of Korinos, Paralia and Olympiaki Akti (or Katerinoskala) are visited by both Greek and international tourists during the summer. A large number of pretty villages surround Katerini and are worth a visit. Most of the people living in the villages work in agriculture (tobacco, cotton, etc.).

Litohoro and Leptokaria are must-sees during the summer as they are resort villages right near the sea. Litohoro, in particular, is a beautiful village that is often referred to as the gateway to Mount Olympus, home of the Olympian gods and goddesses. Both villages offer a variety of tastes that vary from mountain climbing to early morning clubbing.
