  • We found this small church tucked away and a little off the main routes of Thessaloniki after a day of tragedy. Although microscopic seek it, because its frescoes, but especially the absidina ancient mosaics there will strike and you'll return home with a sense of having made a discovery. The coolest thing we saw in Thessaloniki. A note of particular acclaim for the avid keeper, who explained in detail, including Italian, French and English, the content and the meaning of symbolism hidden in artworks, making the visit even more interesting.

  • Amazing mosaic, a true masterpiece. A must see!
  • Might be difficult to find but worth visiting. Mystical atmosphere, impressive murals, nice view. Picturesque alleys around.
  • 5th century AD mosaic! One of a kind! Find it!
  • Turtles used to live in church's yard! I am not sure if they are still there..
  • great

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.
