Pieria is the Greek Riviera. Spreads calm under the imposing Olympus and the green Pieria, as the blue waters of the Aegean.
It's the land of myths, of gods and muses. It is abundant land, a blessed place with a rich cultural past. With excess charm and grace. With magnificent nature and historical heritage.
The history of Hellenism is discovered in ancient city findings (Dion, Livithra, Piblia, Pydna, Methoni, Makrygialos) and other monuments.
In Pieria, senses come alive by the magic of the landscape and the integrity of nature. Mountain and sea, green and blue, myth and reality are in admirable harmony.
