Selected Short visits 

While you are making your holidays you can make a number of very interesting short visits.

Visit to ancient Stageira. Ancient Stagira is located approximately 700 m. N.E. of the current settlement of Olympiada. Birthplace of Aristoteles, the greatest philosopher of ancient times and the teacher of Alexander the Great. The city was founded in ca. 655 B.C. by colonists from Andros. After the Persian Wars it joined the First Athenian League, in 424 B.C. it rebelled against it, and during the Peloponnesian War became an ally of the Spartans against Athens. Later, the city joined the Chalkidian League and in 348 B.C. it was captured by king Philip II. Tradition has it that the inhabitants of Stageira tranferred Aristotle's relics to the city, buried it there, and founded a festival in his honour, called the "Aristoteleia".

Visit the Holomontas forest. Under the name Holomontas is known a large forest in Central and Northern Halkidiki. You can make excellent walks in the routes of Holomontas and find many beautiful small traditional Greek villages as well as great tavernas.

Visit to the island of Ammouliani. Ammouliani is the only inhabited island with a permanent population (approx 600 residents) in Halkidiki. It is situated in the gulf of Mount Athos, at a distance of approx.40 kilometres from Olympiada (Tripiti) and is connected to the mainland with a ferry boat service with the opposite coast of Tripiti. The itineraries of the boats are in regular time intervals throughout the day. It has an extent of 4,5 kilometres. There are lots of hills and small valleys on the island which have blended in with the olive trees and low vegetation but there are no systematic cultures so the ecosystem remains untouched. The coasts present a variety of small shaped creeks with splendid sandy beaches. Weather conditions are not characterized by intense and we should remark that although an island, there are no strong winds especially during the summertime.The residents occupy themselves mainly with fishing and tourism.

Visit to Mount Athos. Mount Athos (Greek: Όρος Άθως, Oros Athos) is a mountain on the peninsula of the same name in Macedonia, of northern Greece, called in Greek Agion Oros (Άγιον Όρος, transliterated often as Hagion Oros), or in English, "Holy Mountain". In Classical times, the peninsula was called Aktí (Ακτή) (sometimes Acte or Akte). Politically it is known in Greece as the Autonomous Monastic State of the Holy Mountain. This World Heritage Site is home to 20 Eastern Orthodox monasteries and forms a self-governed monastic state within the sovereignty of the Hellenic Republic. Spiritually, Mount Athos comes under the direct jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople..

Visit to Aristotele's Park. Aristotle's park is located in the village of Stagira. The Theme park is located in a most outstanding area with a marvellous view towards the gulf of Ierissos and the whole peninsula of Athos. When the weather is clear you can see some of the monasteries on Mount Athos using the telescopes there. It also includes a series of other instruments which when used properly will show the phenomena of nature. All of this is dedicated to the famous philosopher and his work called "the Natural".
