About Thessaloniki

The second largest city in Greece as well as its second most important economic, industrial, cultural and political center, Thessaloniki’s historicity and historical importance in the ancient country is rivaled perhaps only by Athens. It was also the co-capital city of the Byzantine Empire and also its second largest and wealthiest. Today it is home to a treasure trove of monuments and heritage sites from Antiquity, as well as a great sum of its own cultural artifacts that persist today. Color your 2015 travel plans with a little bit of history and take our tours and activities that will lead you to the best that Thessaloniki has to offer.

Jump onto a Thessaloniki hop on hop off tour and explore the city on an open deck bus in your own time. Visit 8 stations at monuments like the White Tower, a 12th century monument and museum of Thessalonian history, and the Hagia Sophia of Thessaloniki, one of its oldest churches and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire these sites from your seat on your tour bus, or disembark and enter them to explore further at your discretion. You can board another passing bus when you wish to move to the next. Listen to audio commentary from aboard the bus to discover the history of the sites that you pass by.

Enter the hidden markets of Thessaloniki and discover the work of artisans and craftsmen. Walk through markets that sell flowers, jewelry, antiques, and more. See metalworkers selling copper and bronze items. Witness Louloudadika, where flower shops are abundant, and marvel at the Turkish baths of Giahoudi Hamam. Travel back to the 12th century in Modiano and Kapani, open-air markets that will provide you with a unique shopping experience. Browse through dairy, fish, fruit, butchered meat, and spices as you see wares that may have remained the same throughout the centuries. End your tour of the place in Ladadika, where the oil trade has thrived throughout history.

Immerse yourself in the gustatory tradition of Greece as you explore the tastes of Thessaloniki. Sample delicious Greek coffee and know more about its history. Eat food from the Byzantine era, like koulouri and bougatsa. Pass through markets where great food items and condiments are on display. At Athonos Square, visit an ouzeri and taste meze with ouzo or tsipouro. End your trip at a Thessalonian confectionary, where you will get to sample some siropiasta, a sweet with a history that dates back to the Greek refugees from the 1920s.
