A folklore museum, now operating in Parthenonas, is of special interest to the visitor,
as the inhabitants’ traditions unfold, with the exhibition of utensils, clothing and
photographs from the beginning of the 20th century and earlier.
The traditional festival on July 27th is worth mentioning, at the Agios Panteleimon church
of Parthenonas, while weddings held in Neos Marmaras and Parthenonas are of particular interest.
Sithonias main mountainous body, Itamos (811m.) or Dragoudelis, is situated north of
Parthenonas, and the climb to the summit follows a 15 km road.
Also worth mentioning is the Porto Carras vineyard, next to Neos Marmaras. It is the second largest
privately-owned vineyard in Europe and supplies the whole world with varieties of wine
under the Porto Carras brand-name.
For those who wish to admire the magnificence of the Mount Athos monasteries, even
from a distance, there are boats that depart daily from the harbor and circumnavigate
Athos peninsula, offering an outstanding cruise.
