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. Find what you're looking for from your Thessaloniki holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Greece day trip planning app.
