Is a weekend enough? Or should I be spending more time? I don't want to do anything fancy, just the classic sightseeing and eating out. Any advice?

I would say 3 days is the minimum! Especially if you're thinking to spend time at museums or like to have longer meals. I tend to spend so much of the day eating that its almost gone lol

I think three days is enough to get a feel for the city and to get an overview. If you want to start exploring the surrounding area, as well, I would up it to 5 days or longer. There's a lot to do in the surrounding area.
 

Do I have to pay to visit monasteries in Thessaloniki?

I was thinking to visit Panagia Ikosifinissa, Vlatadon and Agia Theodora. Do I have to pay to enter? If so, about how much is it per monastery?

About Vlatadon Monastery in Thessaloniki

This monastery was a royal grant from Byzantine Empress Anna Palaiogos. On the land where the monastery was built, according to legend, the Apostle Paul preached to the Thessalonians in 51 A.D, during his second mission. This is what the monastery looks like, totally worth visiting.

Eating and drinking your way through Thessaloniki!

Thessaloniki is Greeces best city because its right on the water

Don't get me wrong I love Athens but its too much pavement and not enough breeze! I personally love Thessaloniki because it has beautiful views of the water and pretty good beaches nearby! :) :) I can't wait to go back this summer
