"Those of you who are Greek..." Greece Favorite Tip by Yiannis2000

Greece General: 655 reviews and 611 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: <b>Those of you who are Greek speaking or at least... reading visit the new site for more information on Thessaloniki and Nothern Greece: www.gothess.gr</b>

Fondest memory: I live and work in Thessaloniki at the heart of nothern Greece, what we call (Greek) Macedonia. My homeplace is the town of Katerini, 70 kms south west of Thessaloniki, at the foothills of legendary Mt. Olympus, the highest mountain of Greece where the 12 Gods of ancient Greeks had their residence. It's a provincial capital without any special charm, but it is conveniently located by the highway that leads from Thessaloniki to Athens; it also lies between the peaks of mount Olympos and the long, sandy beaches of Pieria. I think it is the only area in mediterranean Europe where there is an altitude difference of almost 3000 m. within less than 20 kms.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
