Thessaloniki, Greece's second largest city, is a vibrant and cultural hotspot located in the northern region of the country. With a rich history dating back to ancient times, Thessaloniki offers a diverse range of experiences, from exploring ancient ruins and museums to indulging in the city's lively nightlife and delicious cuisine. Whether you're seeking stunning coastal views or a bustling city centre, Thessaloniki has something to offer everyone.

One of the most popular things to do is to visit the White Tower, a symbol of the city's history and a great viewpoint. The tower has a museum that showcases Thessaloniki’s history and culture. Visitors can enjoy panoramic views of the city from the top of the tower.

Another must-see attraction is the Aristotelous Square, a beautiful plaza that is perfect for strolling and people-watching. The square is surrounded by cafes, restaurants, and shops, making it a great place to spend an afternoon or evening. During the summer months, the square holds concerts and other cultural events.

Thessaloniki is also famous for its food scene, and you can indulge in delicious Greek cuisine at many restaurants and tavernas. The city is particularly renowned for its seafood, and visitors should try the local specialty octopus, either grilled or in a traditional stew. Thessaloniki also has a thriving street food scene, with vendors selling souvlaki, gyros, and other Greek favourites.

For those of you interested in history, there are several museums worth visiting. The Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki houses artifacts from ancient Greece and the Roman Empire. The Museum of Byzantine Culture showcases the city's rich Byzantine heritage, including mosaics, icons, and other artworks. The Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki tells the story of the city's once-vibrant Jewish community, which was decimated during the Holocaust.

Finally, Thessaloniki is a great base for exploring the surrounding region. You can take day trips to nearby Mount Olympus, the legendary home of the Greek gods, or visit the charming seaside town of Halkidiki.
