I love Aristotelis Square! Almost all of Thessaloniki’s public celebrations (Christmas and New Year), as well as cultural and political events and rallies are held on Aristotelous Square. It's so beautiful during holidays because everyone is out and about shopping, eating, and enjoying the beautiful Greek weather.
Thessaloniki is the most erotic city in Greece. You have to take a walk by the sea (leoforos Nikis) and you will find Lefko pyrgo. You must visit Aristotelous plateia( square) and have a Coffee on Δωμάτιο με θέα (room with a view) where you can see the square and the sea. You must visit Λαδάδικα (ladadika) where the night is magical for Coffee, drinks or special food. I will add a Coffee Shop Remvi | Café Bar Restaurant in Kalamaria, by the sea also. A stroll in the old city where you can find the ancient walls. You should visit Agios Dimitrios, a church in Agiou Dimitriou street, a saint that protects 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?
Hey everyone, I’ve been trying to visit more places, and expand my trips to Greece beyond my falimies village lol. I’ve heard a lot about the Ladadika, but does it live up to the hype? What’s really there and is it worth visiting?
What is your favorite day trip from Thessaloniki? I’m thinking of getting a time share in Greece to travel every summer, so that my kids and I can have a place to go without worrying about hotels and resorts every year. I love this spot in Thessaloniki, but I want to see what cool places I can go for day trips…any advice?
