The municipality of Toroni is situated on the south part of Sithonia
peninsula in Chalkidiki.
It is between the gulf of Kassandra
also called Toroneos gulf and the gulf
of Agion Oros (Athos) or Sigitikos.
Mount Itamos (811 m height) is stretched out on the north and central
part of the municipality. The trees here are mainly pine trees and plane trees.
The alternation of the landscape, the amazing beauty of the coasts,
the climate, which is ideal because of the sea and the mountain influence, together
with Mount Athos tradition
offer the visitor the opportunity to have at the same time unforgettable holidays
an acquisition of knowledge.
