Don´t miss ancient Olynthos while you visit Chalkidiki mountain area. But don´t go while there is big heat.

This is the closest item of interest, it is quite a walk up from the car park so drinks are required. Enjoyable few hours wandering there.

Interesting site, but a little more information would be welcome. You neet to use your imagination. Be sure to visit the museum before you hike up. Don't forget to bring water! Enjoy the cherrie trees in Spring. We did!

A place hidden to most. Almost unknown. Almost abandoned. A long path to the past. And then this amazing view & feeling. It was a rainy day, the city was alone, and still awaiting us with a smile. Next to the old stables, a wild...More
