Recommended Activities

The trip to Thrace starts from the charming city of Xanti. Characterized as “the city with a thousand colours”, Xanthi is a unique tourist destination with plenty of things to do. The rich history and traditions, the famous  Xanthi carnival, the Old Town and the vivid nightlife are some of the reasons why you should visit the magical city of Xanthi. Not miss the chance to stroll around the Old Town exploring the classic buildings as well as to walk through the cobblestoned alleys and discover the lovely coffee shops, restaurants and taverns throughout the Old Town.

Next is Vistonida Lake, a stunning wetland with rich flora. The natural surroundings full of poplars and plane trees will definitely captivate you! The fauna of the lake is also rich, as it hosts over 230 kinds of birds and fish. Another one important biotope is, Porto Lagos. Located on the borders of Xanthi and Rhodope prefectures, and more specifically at the point where Vistonida joins the Thracian Sea, makes up a unique scenery of distinct natural beauty. At the same location, you will have the chance to visit the spectacular Monastery of Agios Nikolaos. The church of Agios Nikolaos, as well as the chapel of Padannasa (known for the homonymous miraculous icon),  attracts thousands of religious tourists every year. Last stop is Fanari, a small seaside village with a long Blue Flag awarded beach.
