Byzantine heritage of Thessaloniki?

I've recently developed a keen interest in Byzantine history and its remarkable cultural heritage. Having read that Thessaloniki has a rich tapestry of Byzantine monuments and sites, I'm reaching out to this knowledgeable community for some insight.

I'd love to hear anyone's experiences in visiting Thessaloniki with a focus on its Byzantine past. Could you share recommendations on must-see sites? Particularly, I'm interested in the architecture related to Byzantium and if there's a museum about it I can visit.

Thanks in advance!

Public transportation in Thessaloniki?

I'm planning a trip to Thessaloniki and would appreciate some advice on the public transportation system. How reliable and convenient are the buses? Are there any other public transport options I should consider? Also, is it easy to get around the city without a car? Any tips on purchasing tickets or navigating the routes would be really helpful. We're hoping to explore the city extensively, so any insights on the best ways to get around would be greatly appreciated.

Good markets to visit in Thessaloniki?

I'm planning a visit to Thessaloniki soon, and I'm really keen on exploring the local markets there. I've heard that the city is rich in history and culture, and I believe that visiting local markets is one of the best ways to immerse oneself in the local atmosphere and perhaps find some unique items to bring back home.

Does anyone have recommendations for markets in Thessaloniki that are worth visiting? I'm interested in anything from food markets where I can taste local delicacies, to flea markets where I might find interesting antiques or crafts. Also, if you have any tips on the best days and times to visit, as well as what I might expect in terms of items available and price ranges, that would be incredibly helpful!

Looking forward to your suggestions and thank you in advance for sharing your insights!
