Naoussa is a uniquely beautiful place full of flavors, aromas and colors, a place with hospitable people.
The town of Naoussa, built on the foothill of mount Vermion, surrounded by its villages on the mountain and the plain, welcomes us any time of the year in a green environment.
A land, rich in natural beauty and culture with pure environment, fresh air and crystal-clear water, offers its visitors a secure environment for either relaxation and leisure or for action with all kinds of sports activities available.
Visitors will enjoy local goods such as “xinomavro” wine, mushrooms, snails, mountain herbs, fresh fruit and vegetables of the plain, as well as local traditional recipes cooked with fresh products of the area.
Naoussa boasts top historical sites, Aristotle’s School, the Macedonian Tombs and the ancient theater of Mieza. The contribution of the town to the Greek Revolution of 1821 has nominated it “heroic town”. Over the last two centuries Naoussa has been a major industrial centre. Its cultural heritage also includes a unique custom, “Genitsaroi and Bulles”, which revives during the Carnival period every year.
Just 90 kms away from Thessaloniki, it is an ideal place for family trips, excursions for elderly people or groups of youngsters who love adventure in nature.
Hospitable hotels and pensions either in the town or on the mountain provide a secure environment for small getaways. The visitor can appreciate the local cuisine either in the taverns of the town or at the picturesque villages and taste “xinomavro” wine in the small family wineries.
We begin discovering Naoussa by presenting two of the most beautiful and easily accessible trails on mount Vermion.
