As a city, it has something to offer for all tastes and expectations: food with influences from the Mediterranean and the East, sport for all levels and preferences, religious, historical and archaeological interest, as well as many options for our entertainment.
Xanthi combines tradition with multiculturalism, putting color in our daily lives while being a contemporary and very lively city! Our visitor will surely wander the alleys of the Old Town to admire its architecture, to visit the churches and the many interesting museums.
During a dinner-stop, it is a must to taste the combination of flavors that make this area unique for its cuisine which is the blend of Mediterranean and Oriental flavors, such as the kavourma, the kebabs, the Xanthi cheese and more, also try the local wine and finish with a dessert such as sujuk loukoum or the very famous karioka.
Certainly no one can resist the scent of freshly ground coffee, or the delicious kariokas of the well-known confectionery shops of the city, as well as the very famous “syropiasta”, which are pastries that soaked in sugar- or honey syrup.
On Saturday the locals as well as the visitors will visit the most famous bazaar of Greece, “Xanthi´s Pazari” that combines all kinds of goods, from food to clothing, footwear, furniture and many other products.
The evening entertainment of our visitor is also a matter of choice as the city offers everything: tavernas with or without music, restaurants, cafés and bars. The genres of music can satisfy all tastes such as rock, alternative, folk, rebetiko and more.
Xanthi, located just 2 hours and 30 minutes away from Thessaloniki, is the city that combines everything: beauty, culture, history, entertainment.
