Pieria is an area in Greece that has a lot to offer. Situated on the south western edge of Central Macedonia, is home to some of Greece’s longest sandy beaches, several archaeological sites, historical castles, many coastal resorts and traditional villages and to the legendary Mount Olympus, which according to the Greek mythology was place where the ancient Greek gods lived.  The mountain is a protected national park and offers incredible biodiversity, appreciated by nature lovers and hikers alike. There are fantastic walking trails to explore, beautiful waterfalls forming natural pools and plenty of possibilities for outdoor activities such as canyoning, river trekking, rock climbing and mountain biking. In Pieria there are also important archaeological sites such as the ancient city of Pydna and the Archaeological Park of Dion, the most important sacred city of the Macedonians. Its coast is unique because of the vast expanses of sandy beaches that you can find there. The lovely beaches extend for over 70 kms. and lead down to peaceful clear blue waters. Along the coast several summer resorts offer excellent facilities to visitors and the opportunity to relax and have a great time.
