Thessaloniki

Sightseeing Historic Sites Museums

Mother of Israel

A city with a stormy history and a cosmopolitan heart, Thessaloniki attracts visitors with its diverse culinary scene, dynamic nightlife, and youthful energy. Considered one of the most cultured and affordable Greek cities, Thessaloniki serves tourists as a convenient base for quick day trips into the surrounding region, the starting point of Alexander the Great's legendary conquests. More manageable and less crowded than its big sister Athens, this walkable city boasts a continuous history of more than 3,000 years and contains well-preserved relics of Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman rulers. Fifteen of its churches, built between the 4th and 14th centuries and recognized as World Heritage Sites, represent some of the world's finest examples of Byzantine art and architecture. Customize your holiday with our Greece travel itinerary planner to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in Thessaloniki

If you come to Thessaloniki to splurge and pamper yourself, book a room at one of the city's five-star hotels, providing spacious rooms packed with amenities, as well as access to rooftop bars, ground-floor restaurants, and fitness facilities. Centrally located hotels also provide secure parking, complimentary Wi-Fi, and quick walking access to the city's top attractions. On the other hand, if all you need is a comfortable bed and a warm meal, consider a budget-friendly hostel or family-run inn in the residential areas outside the city's central area.
