Thessaloniki is Greece's second largest city after Athens, and it considered the country's cultural capital. Thessaloniki lies on the coast, so your first port of call should be the beach, where you can sunbathe, swim, or take a walk along the promenade. There's much more to Thessaloniki than just beaches though. The city has a fascinating past which can be traced back more than 3,000 years, so history buffs will be delighted with the attractions on offer such as the 16th century White Tower, the city's symbol, and the grand Byzantine churches. Thessaloniki is also renowned for its festivals and events, particularly the Thessaloniki International Trade Fair and the Thessaloniki International Film Festival which are both highlights of the city's events calendar. After dark head to Aristotelous Square for cafes, restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

Before you travel to Thessaloniki by plane - good to know!

Thessaloniki is fun to walk around, particularly the Byzantine and Ottoman old town. But visitors should note that it can be quite hilly, so using buses or taxis can be a good option. In that case, buying three-journey tickets on buses is a good way to save money. After that, there's plenty to see. Standouts include the 4th-century Rotunda, which was once intended to house the remains of a Roman emperor, and the White Tower, which is a famous symbol of the city. The Archaeology Museum provides an invaluable grounding in Thessaloniki's ancient past, but joining walking tours is advisable. Fascinating ruins can be found across the city, and experts will tell their stories in vivid fashion.
