Known as Greek's culture capital, Thessaloniki hosts major festivals, arts events and exhibitions year-round. The city itself is a gem for Byzantine churches, Ottoman architecture and Roman relics. Where to begin?

Essentials in Thessaloniki

Byzantine Walls: On the northern side of the city the Byzantine walls are still standing as well as the White Tower, the symbol of Thessaloniki, which dates back to the 16th century. The walls in the Upper Town offer some spectacular views.

Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki: This museum houses the most important artefacts from Macedonia including some golden artwork from the royal palaces of Aigai and Pella. This museum is a must.

Nightlife: Thessaloniki has the most cafes and bars per capita than any other city in all of Europe so you can imagine that the nightlife and social life here is phenomenal. The waterfront is a favourite spot to spend the warm summer evenings, hopping from one bar to the next.

Accommodations in Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki is very much a uni town and have plenty of budget and backpacker's hotels and hostels. For something in the mid-range, try a hotel near Aristotelous Square in the city centre. In the off season it's work asking for a better price on your hotel room in Thessaloniki. Most hoteliers would rather offer a discount than turn away a guest.
