Ideal for visitors from the region of northern Greece.

Arrival in the city of Kilkis on Saturday morning and arranging our accommodation in one of the hotels of the city (hyperlink).

If possible, we propose to come to Kilkis through the route of Mikrokampos and Ksilokeratia, visiting Pikrolimni (located between Mikrokampos and Ksilokeratia) and visit the baths of Pikrolimni, or even stay overnight.

If the selected accommodation is in Kilkis, after settling in the hotel, we can take a trip to the north of the city, to eat in Efkarpia, visit to the archaeological site of Terpyllos and Palatiano, where there are also copies of ancient statues. For this visit, we should contact the Archaeological Service first.

We return to the city of Kilkis, where there is always an opportunity for entertainment in one of the many cafes and restaurants of the city.

On the next day, Sunday, we can visit the archaeological museum (here you will find four wonderful statues of Palatiano, the Kouros of Europos, along with unique and interesting archaeological findings of the everyday life of our ancestors), the War museum which is located just outside the city Kilkis on the Heroon Hill, and also the Church of St. George and the Cave of Kilkis.Then we can go to Gynaikokastro, to visit the Byzantine castle and then to Chorygi, where an imposing megalithic monument of prehistoric times is located. On our way back, we can stop for lunch in the picturesque village of Metalliko.

Returning to our base, after the completion of our trip, we propose to take the regional road through Colchida, Ksiilokeratia and Mikrokampos if you did not take this route upon arrival.
