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!
A visit to the Byzantine Museum of Thessaloniki can offer a different experience to each visitor. Through its exceptional exhibits, we reconstruct the life of the people of the Byzantine Empire. Do not forget that Thessaloniki has 15 Byzantine monuments that are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and its history is closely intertwined with the Byzantine Empire. After our tour in the museum, a break at the museum’s cafe, to enjoy some coffee and dessert or a light meal with exceptional wine from the Macedonian land, is a must.
In the center of the city, the neighborhood of Hagia Sophia, hides a huge history. The UNESCO listed monument, reminiscent of that of Istanbul, reveals not only the importance of the neighborhood over the centuries but also its exquisite mosaics inside. The catacombs within breathing distance of the temple, complete its well-hidden history. The neighborhood of Hagia Sophia hosts houses of European architecture, which hide myths and breathtaking stories for all mystery lovers. The nearby pedestrian streets offer a wide range of culinary options for an unforgettable dinner.
