Monuments full of stories about emperors, gods and mortals, wars and victories. Open, busy markets, full of images that bring to mind the bazaars of the Orient. Narrow paved roads and traditional houses with distinct architecture. Flavors with roots in Byzantium, the Ottoman period, the Sephardic Jews and other ethnic groups that, through history, chose Thessaloniki as their homeland.
Since its foundation, Thessaloniki has been a crossroads of cultures, different customs and tastes – a city of historical significance and unique vibes.
Join us on a tailor-made trip in this vibrant metropolis and spend a time to remember!
Thessaloniki was actually a real person. She gave her name to a city that over the years became an important station of different cultures and empires. But what was her life like? The woman’s story and the city’s history, its creation, the lives of the people of that time, are all hidden in the Archaeological Museum’s halls and its important exhibits made of gold and other precious materials. Mosaics from villas, tombs and stories of the city until its conquest by the Romans await you, in one of the most important museums of the city.
There can be no Thessaloniki without Ano Poli (Thessaloniki’s Upper Town). So there is no better way to spend our afternoon than with a visit to the traditional settlement of Ano Poli. At the most beautiful “balcony” of the city, we will not only enjoy our coffee overlooking the magnificent sunset of Thermaikos gulf, but we will also have a one-of-a-kind walk in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods, and admire its narrow cobbled streets and houses of special architecture.
