Agia Sophia square is just down the street! It's one of the most beautiful plateias in the city! Totally worth a visit. In terms of actual stores or restaurants, I just walk around until I stumble upon something nice to do. The city is always busy and full of activities, you won't miss them
Aristotelous Square is a great gathering point in Thessaloniki. There are many shops and cafes and it is a nice place to sit and enjoy the day. As someone else said, Sophia Square is nearby and that is a very beautiful place!
I'm wondering if I should book a guided tour to really get to know the city well and learn about all of the history and culture. Is it worth it? And would you recommend a private tour guide or going in a group? I really want to learn more about the places that I'm visiting and not just walking around aimlessly
I always look forward to festivals like the Thessaloniki International Fair, the Thessaloniki International Film Festival and the International Book Fair. Does anyone know if they'll be happening this year?
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?
Agia Triada Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Thessaloniki but I haven't been yet. I don't usually think of beaches when I think of Thessaloniki but judging by this picture it's a must see! What are your thoughts?
