Metaggitsi is about 100 kilometers from Thessaloniki and travelers can choose from many routes to get to their destination. Most of the village houses are traditionally built of stone and impress visitors. This village is known all over Halkidiki. One of the reasons is the incredibly delicious food that you can try in the hospitable taverns of Metaggitsi. It is a fact that local ingredients cooked in Metaggitsi are made as the residents are mainly concerned with livestock and agriculture.
