Kallithea, a community established in 1922, is currently a small village situated about 90 km from Thessaloniki, in the east side of the peninsula of Kassandra (Chalkidiki).
Thousands of tourists visit Kallithea every summer to enjoy the amazing beaches and great archaeological discoveries. Highlights include the remains of the Doric sanctuary to Zeus Ammon, the sanctuary to Dionysous and the Nymphs, and the small Russian-style chapel of Agios Panteleimon.
One of the most sought - after destinations in the beautiful Kassandra, where pine trees fringe a unique sandy coastline, Kallithea is a modern commercial and cosmopolitan resort with a wide range of restaurants and taverns - from pizza and pasta to traditional Greek dishes and British favourites - as well as night clubs and bars, ensuring a spectacular night life.
