  • Bad Bus System

    Katerini Transportation

    The bus system in Greece is really bad, especially for tourists. The schedule makes no sense. Despite the fact that it's written in Greek, the times are inaccurate, i.e. our bus arrived 15 minutes later then it was suppose to.The connections are also really bad. We were traveling to Dion and had to change buses in Katerini. Our driver didn't speak...

  • Litochoro City Park

    Litokhoron Things to Do

    Our tour stopped in this town, for about an hour. They walked us to the church, and then gave us an hour free time. I hit a few shops, than just walked down the main road to see what there was, and I ended up finding the city park. I started walking it, and found this nice pool and fountain, that was on the postcard I bought. There was a nice view...

  • The amazing views

    Litokhoron Things to Do

    I’m sure that everywhere at the mountain you can find fascinating views but the best ones I like are on the way to the peak. When you go from Litochoro to Thessaloniki, turn right on the first curve you’ll see, there is a sign “Mount Olympus” if I remember right. Then driving up, there are some places with a bench or just a wider place to stop...

  • Ennipeas Gorge

    Litokhoron Things to Do

    After asking few people about this gorge and finding a kind couple that escorted us to the beginning of “Olympus National Park” we finally stopped in front of a wooden booth. Btw, I noticed that on every tourist place that we visited we were asked where we are from and is it our first time coming to this place, good for the statistics, nobody else...

  • Walk From Panteleimonas

    Platamonas Transportation

    Platamonas lies about 2 miles from Paralia Panteleimonas. We were staying in Paralia Panteliemonas. From there, Platamonas can easily be reached by foot.From Paralia Pantelimonas, just follow the beach towards Platamonas Castle, and take the old train tunnel, not the new one (see my Warnings and Dangers tip). Once you get through the tunnel, it's...

  • Clothing

    Platamonas Shopping

    Walking through Platamonas I saw lots of outdoor clothing stands. They just hang outside the shops. Some of these stands, also sell handbags, and backpacks. It's mostly little kids stuff, but if you search through them hard enough, you can find some clothes for teens and adults too. If not, these stalls are a great place to buy clothes or handbags...

  • Platamonas Castle

    Platamonas Things to Do

    The town's most famous attraction is its castle. The castle sits on a large hill, just across from Neos Panteleimon, overlooking the beautiful Aegean Sea, and the slopes of Mt. Olympus. This Venetian style castle was built by the Byzantines in the 10th century. The tower dates from the 14th century. The castle was invaded by Crusaders in 1204....
