One day excursion to Xanthi
Xanthi, known as the "jewel" of Thrace, is located 212 km from Thessaloniki. It is a modern city with a great historic and cultural past which is still alive in the streets of the Old Town.
Visit the beautiful old town with picturesque stone alleys (Antika Street by far is the most sublime), the well-preserved houses and the remarkable mansions (the most representative of which is Kougioumtzoglou mansion which houses the Folk Museum, under the auspices of the Xanthi Friends of Progress Union).
The tobacco warehouses, in the Kapnapothikes region, are also an integral part of Xanthi as they are inextricably linked to the economic growth and development of the city. The town Clock in Xanthi has dominated the city's central square since 1880.
