Litochoro’s sources lie in myth and tradition. The old city has managed to preserve its cultural heritage and traditional architecture and to successfully combine it with its modern lifestyle. It combines the cool of the mountain air with the sea breeze and visitors can walk around the lanes between the traditional houses with the Macedonian architecture, the old wooden courtyard doors and the gabled roofs, work of local wood turners and stonemasons.

The folk traditions are kept alive through customs that are continued to the present day. Litochoro is an ideal base for investigating the wider area due to its easy access and excellent tourist infrastructure. Above Litohoro stands Mount Olympus, magnificent, imposing, observing for millennia the life down in the valleys and shores below, joining its peaks with the heavens and leaving the myths to roll down its slopes, wander its woods and ravines, encountering history and spectacular natural beauty.

At the foot of Mount Olympus the ancient city of Dion is located, known for its archaeological site and the Archaeological Museum. The Thermaic Gulf offers its delights on shores that stretch for thirty kilometers with sandy beaches and the bluest of waters.
