It is built near the ancient city “Galipsos” that had important role at the time of the Peloponnesian war. The place is inhabited for over three thousand years. Herodotus in the History of the Median wars settles the city “Galipsos” between Toroni and Sermyli. During the late Hellenistic and Roman period, there was an important settlement in the area now occupied by the chapel of St. George on beach of Nikiti. What remains today of that settlement is an early Christian basilica, one of the oldest and most important have been found in northern Greece
 
Designation
The name Nikiti   comes from the "land of Neakitou 'dependency of the Monastery of Xenophon since 1300, which is placed just before the junction to Marmara. The Monastery of Neakitou sometime before 1300 declined and only the name survived. The official name of the village since the recognition of the community in 1918 was known from maps and various official documents as a community of "Nikita." This name remained until 1988, which later changed its name officially to "Nikiti"
 
Historical
The village's history began with the establishment of the first settlement in the 14th century. The first written reference to the current settlement is in the archives of Xenophon monastery of Mount Athos, in a census of the early 14th century. Before the foundation of the village, the place was a monastery dependency. The monks must have been those in the 14th century or earlier built the first temple in the position that on the 16th century the church of the Assumption was built which is currently used as a church and cemetery located just above Agios Nikitas. The settlement of Nikiti developed and survived throughout the period of Ottoman rule. So the Nikiti is today one of the oldest villages of Halkidiki.

Nikiti   puts the visitor at the outset dilemma. Mountain or sea? Whatever you choose will leave you equally fond memories. 

The crossroads of the main road leads, either - if you turn left as you come from Thessaloniki - in serpentine streets leading to the prehistoric settlement, which kept homes that are built from 1830, either - if you turn right on the beach-Nikiti where cafes succeed one another without exception and offer cool shade and magical beaches.

The traditional settlement of inland village of Sithonia, the Macedonian architecture of the houses, the typical chimneys exhibiting art of the craftsmen, the church of St.Nikita, built in 1867 and the old school is offered for a walk any time of the day.
