Have you considered taking a day trip to Mount Olympus? It's definitely an adventure and a historical hike that you won't forget

I totally agree - this is one of the best districts in the city! It's so interesting, and there is a lot to do. It's a section where there is a lot of history concentrated in one place, and there are shops and restaurants too.

I agree. I think it's the most famous district in the city
 

Day Trips from Thessaloniki

What are some good day trips to do while in Thessaloniki? Some ideas to start:

- I know there are some great beaches in the area
- Did I see that Meteora is doable for a day trip?
- Are there any day cruises to nearby islands or anything?

First Time to Thessaloniki

Whenever I go to Greece, it is always to Athens. This time, I was thinking of heading to Thessaloniki. It would be my first time!

Does anyone have an advice for those visiting the city for the first time? I don't quite know where to start. Is there a particular neighborhood I should stay in, for starters? I would like to get an AirBnB or something like that.

What are your favorite things to do in Thessaloniki?

I am thinking of taking a trip to Thessaloniki next year. I am trying to think of what to do. I just want a rough idea so I can figure out how many days to spend.

Here's what I was thinking for some activities, but I want to know your recommendations:
  • Taking a walk along the beautiful waterfront promenade
  • Exploring the historical White Tower
  • Savoring delicious Greek cuisine at the local tavernas
What activities or spots would you recommend? I'm interested in everything from cultural experiences, food destinations, hidden gems, to some relaxation spots. And of course, if there are any events or local gatherings happening, I'd be thrilled to join and immerse myself in the local culture.

Are there good beaches near Thessaloniki?

I am gathering some information about possible beaches to visit while in Greece. I will be traveling with a bunch of people who love the beach. We have to spend some time in Thessaloniki to visit someone, but I am trying to figure out if the beaches in this area will do the trick or if we should take a few days to travel somewhere just for the beach. We'll also be spending time on Crete. Should we wait for Crete to go to the beach?

Here are some beaches that I found near Thessaloniki. Are they any good?

Peraia Beach: Peraia Beach is located in the municipality of Thermaikos, just a short drive from Thessaloniki. This long sandy beach offers plenty of cafes and bars nearby.

Agia Triada Beach: Agia Triada Beach is another great option located in the municipality of Thermaikos. This beach is famous for its clear blue waters and stunning views of Mount Olympus. There are plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas available for rent, and numerous cafes and restaurants.

Nea Michaniona Beach: Nea Michaniona Beach is a quiet, secluded beach located just 30km from Thessaloniki. This beach is perfect for those looking to escape the crowds and relax in a peaceful environment. I heard the water here is crystal clear and perfect for swimming.

Epanomi Beach: Epanomi Beach is a long sandy beach located just 26km from Thessaloniki. This beach offers plenty of space and amenities, making it perfect for families. There are plenty of cafes and taverns to grab a bite, as well as a kids' playground and beach volley court.

Self Guided Tour of Thessaloniki?

Does anyone know of any resources that will help me give myself a "self guided" tour of Thessaloniki?

I know I can look up all the main places online as I am there. However, I am more interested in finding a narration ahead of time and listening to it while I drive around and see some of the sites. Does such a thing exist?

I am in Thessaloniki for a short time with a group of people who don't like to do "tours" so I have some time to go off by myself for a few hours one of the days.
