The region of Halkidiki in northern Greece is known as “the jewel of northern Greece” due to its abundance of natural beauty and its 550 kilometres of coastline.
It is composed of three peninsulas, all of which project into the Aegean Sea in their own unique way. Kassandra and Sithonia extend an invitation to take a tour of the Holy Mount Athos or the Garden of the Virgin Mary.
The region of Halkidiki is known for its untouched coniferous forests and the presence of two rivers—the Havrias and the Olynthios—that run through the region.
The birthplace of Aristotle, the ancient city of Stagira, the ancient city of Olynthos, the Cave of Petralona, where the Petralona Skull was discovered, the Sanctuary of Zeus Ammon, the ancient town of Mendi, numerous beautiful coasts, delicious local products, museums, and festivals are just a few of the reasons why you should visit the region of Halkidiki.
