An amazing place combining mountain and sea. A place where you can feel the fresh breeze of air, the warm sand on your feet, and the sun reflecting on the crystal blue waters.

Katerini is a city and municipality in northern Greece, the capital city of the province of Pieria in Central Macedonia, Greece. A popular tourist destination in northern Greece, Katerini is close to the sea (7 km) and to several archaeological sites of great interest such as the ancient city of Dion (5th century BC, 17 km away), the ancient Leivithra (27 km away) and the Castle of Platamon. The beaches of Korinos, Paralia, and Olympiaki Akti are visited by both Greek and foreign tourists during the Summer. The base of Mount Olympus and the town of Litochoro, is at a distance of around 20 km from the center of Katerini, whereas there is the Ski center of Elatochori in Mount Pieria at a distance of 33.4 km from the city's center.
