Thessaloniki - Queen of North Greece
Thessaloniki is easy to fall in love with – it has beauty, history and culture, a remarkable cuisine and wonderful, vast sea views. This is Greece’s second city, full of life and vibrancy.
The different neighborhoods are little worlds unto themselves, and when you climb up to the Byzantine walls and take in the whole of Thessaloniki at sunset, you see what a sprawling, organic city it is. Old and new cohabit wonderfully: the Arch of Galerius, an intricate 4th-century monument, overlooks the busy shopping drag of Egnatia, while Thessaloniki’s most famous sight, the White Tower, anchors a waterfront packed with cocktail bars. The waterfront area (revamped a few years ago) breathes life and is great for walking and cycling. By night, the city reverberates with music and nightlife.
