  • Bus n° 23 leads to the Ano Poli (old town), so you have to ask the driver, where you can visit the Byzantine walls and within walking distance of the monastery, take bus tickets at kiosks in the Centre or you can do on the middle where there is a vending machine, you pay a small extra charge and you have to have money in coinage. The complex of modern architecture still preserves the ancient Church, which has within it fragments of ancient frescoes defaced during the Ottoman period, beautiful icons. You can't take pictures inside the Church. Free admission.

  • It's quite a climb to get here but worth it for the views and the sense of being far away from the buzz of the city  more »
  • had the pleasure to see the locals break bread and marvel over the lovely frescoes. shame about the caged birds in the garden.  more »

  • Amazing view of Thessaloniki! Unique Byzantine frescoes! Take the bus to go and walk down afterwards, towards the city centre, following Ano Poli's (Upper Town) backstreets and stairs...
  • In addition to a great view of the city, the monastery has a bird farm- which include peacocks. The architecture is great to see.
  • Wonderful tranquil place with a magnificent view on the city.
  • Wonderful view but the interior is a bit depressing.
  • A really masterpiece of Orthodox Churches

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.
