About Mount Olympos, Limassol
Mount Olympus (/oʊˈlɪmpəs, ə-/; Greek: Όλυμπος; also transliterated as Olympos, and on Greek maps, Oros Olympos) is the highest mountain in Greece and the second highest mountain in the Balkans. It is located in the Olympus Range on the border between Thessaly and Macedonia, between the regional units of Pieria and Larissa, about 80 km (50 mi) southwest from Thessaloniki. Mount Olympus has 52 peaks, deep gorges, and exceptional biodiversity. The highest peak Mytikas, meaning "nose", rises to 2,918 metres (9,573 ft). It is one of the highest peaks in Europe in terms of topographic prominence. Olympus was notable in Greek mythology as the home of the Greek gods, on the Mytikas peak. Mount Olympus is also noted for its very rich flora with several species. It has been a National Park, the first in Greece, since 1938. It is also a World's Biosphere Reserve. Every year thousands of people visit Olympus to admire its fauna and flora, to tour its slopes, and reach its peaks. Organized mountain refuges and various mountaineering and climbing routes are available to visitors who want to explore it. The usual starting point is the town of Litochoro, on the eastern foothills of the mountain, 100 km from Thessaloniki, where, in the beginning of every summer, the Olympus Marathon terminates. There are multiple theories for the origin of the name Olympus. It has been suggested that it means "sky", "bright", "high" or "rock". One theory holds that Olympus is a prehellenic toponym that simply means "mountain". In Ottoman times, the Turkish name for the mountain was "Semavat Evi", meaning "sky house".Wikipedia

A little bit disappointing, because you cannot actually climb the peak, as there is a military base on the top. Other reviewers praise the trail encircling the summit, but we had no time to hike it. We climbed as close to the top as it was possible and the view was nice, but because of the base the view is open to one direction only. There is no trail to the peak. I recommend leaving a car on the parking by the ski center and restaurant. From there you can walk straight uphill through a nice pine forest.
Top of mountain Olympus which is the tallest mountain of the island. View from there is amazing. If you love walking try the Artemis path which goes around the mountain.
