An interesting destination from Thessaloniki is Katerini, located 68 km from Thessaloniki, which you can get to with your rental car in a relatively short time, as it is a connecting bay and a new highway runs by it. This has proved beneficial for the development of Katerini in recent years. It lies between the Pieria Mountains and Thermaikos bay.
According to the official census of 2001 the inhabitants of the city are 53 418.
The town's name has its roots in Katherine of Alexandria, a Christian martyr, who lived in the 4th century.
During the summer, the most popular beaches are Korinos beach, Paralia beach and the Olympic Coast. It is located close enough to Mount Olympus and the Venetian castle Platamonas. The natural spas in Katerini are also noteworthy, whose popularity is increasing steadily. It is definitely worth visiting with your rental car that you can pick up from airport "Macedonia".
In recent years Katerini evolved into a transformational, financial and tourist center. Several industrial units are operating dealing with the processing of local agricultural and livestock products (tobacco, grain, vineyards, sheep and poultry). Lignite deposits have also been found near the town, as well as sources of natural gas. Katerini is a popular touristic destination as it is 6km away from the sea and has many attractions. You can reach the beaches with a rental car which you can rent at the cheapest prices from our company.
