Eastern Macedonia and Thrace

Built amphitheatrically at the foot of the Rodopi mountain range, Xanthi is the capital of a little-known area of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace, in northern Greece: crossroads of the routes between the Black Sea and the Aegean Sea, between Europe and Asia.


The Smart Way follows two directions meeting in the capital, Xanthi. The first one is divided into two paths that lead inland and to the mountains, one to the east and one to the west. The second one leads to the south and the Aegean Sea, with its enchanting uncontaminated coasts.


For those looking for authentic experiences, nature, good food and fun, the Xanthi area is a destination able to meet the expectations of the most demanding travellers, thanks to the intercultural atmospheres where the intersection of civilizations, religions and foods shows all its essence.
