I saw another user posting that people shouldn't visit Athens during August because all of the locals are away on vacation and a lot of the businesses are closed. Does this apply for Thessaloniki as well?

Most of Greece is pretty quiet in August, but it is the most noticeable in in Athens. Thessaloniki definitely slows down, though.

Yes, but to a lesser extent. Greece quiets down in August because Greeks take their vacations. Many, however, take that opportunity to visit their relatives in other parts of Greece. I found that the islands were still busy.
 

You must visit the Arch of Galerius in Thessaloniki!

This is one of the most important landmarks in Thessaloniki. Galerius was aRoman Emperor who build the arch built as part of a road that would connect his palace to the main road that stretched through the city. The arch was made to instill a sense of majesty and wonder on those who passed through it. It served a reminder of the presence of the Roman Empire. Today the arch still stands and is one of those that you absolutely must visit while you’re here. This is what the beautiful arch looks like

Are there any traditional Greek villages near Thessaloniki?

I love the feel of a small village. Is there anything near the city that I can visit?

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?

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
