“WHERE TIME PASSES DIFFERENTLY”
If you want to spend your holidays in a coastal city that envies nothing of any other city or area in Halkidiki, then visit Ierissos. The 12 km. of coastline, the clean, cool sea are more than a challenge, they are also a competitive advantage with respect to other areas in the prefecture. The Center of Mt. Athos Heritage is unique in all Europe and utilizes the latest, state-of-the-art multimedia and 3D technologies to ‘show’ you round Mt. Athos or the seabed and other wonderful sights that will entertain both you and your children. And all of this with such a token ticket. Ancient Akanthus, acropolis of Ierissos, stands impressive over the city and is a very important archaeological site that must be visited, in order to mentally travel back to the marvels of antiquity. The port of Ierissos is suitable for mooring and just two kilometers away from the city, while if you want to visit Holy Mount Athos, you may take the boat that runs daily schedules from there. There is no end to fun and entertainment in Ierissos. There are dozens of beach bars, restaurants and traditional taverns which shall delight your senses at very affordable prices. Don’t forget to taste “orkini”, a local salty tidbit served with pure tsipouro also locally produced. It might sound crazy, but Ierissos also caters for bowling lovers! There is a bowling alley at City Hall square where you can play your favorite game! Visit Ierissos and get to know the hospitality of its people, which shall make your holidays truly enjoyable and see that there is nothing you may possibly miss!
