I’m finally trying to make it to Greece this year, but my budget is tight, especially because covid hit the restaurant business bad. How can I make my trip to Thessaloniki just as good?

Traveling anywhere in Greece on a budget can be a bit difficult, especially since it has become such a popular tourist destination for people from all over the world. My first tip is to travel during the off season and to avoid months like June, July, and August. May and September are still pretty warm and feel like you’re in the middle of summer.

Airbnb is also a great option. Many of the hotels in Greece are small and run down anyways, and aren’t worth the money like in other countries. Many of them don’t even have continental breakfast!! Your best bet is to get an airbnb, get groceries to cook your own meals, and eat out when you want/can afford.

Can I go to the beach in Thessaloniki?

I know that everywhere in Greece is super close to the beach, but how are the beaches in Thessaloniki? Can I count on spending a few days at the beach while I’m there or should I save that for another spot in Greece? I really want to catch some rays when I’m there!!

Thessaloniki seems to be culturally (and architecturally) different than some of the other places I've been to in Greece...does anyone know about the cultural influences in Thessaloniki? Was it maybe a prominent part of the Byzantine empire?
