I know Athens has a fabulous subway system, but I don't know much about Thessaloniki....is it easy to get around using buses? Is there even a subway? I don't plan on renting a car but I'd love to explore some of the key spots on the outskirts of the city that are difficult to get to on foot.

It's very easy to get around, as long as you figure out how to navigate the map. It's pretty reliable, too, and I've never had a problem. If you have a specific destination in mind, though, you might want to consider getting a taxi. Not every place is easy to get to using transportation.

I would recommend getting data on your phone (if you have a smart phone) and using it for navigation. Google maps in Greece is pretty accurate

I second this advice! Google Maps is pretty good - I used it last time I was in Greece a few years ago and it worked well.

Thessaloniki Still Struggling to Increase Hotel Stays .

The reduction in Domestic travelers is a sign of economical situation where people cannot afford to go for holidays.This season has been very tough,an old colleague from Mykonos now living in New York was there for a month in summer just gone and she said she was so sad to see many businesses closed and the difficult times were obviously felt all around. https://news.gtp.gr/2021/09/28/thessaloniki-still-struggling-to-increase-hotel-stays/
