It’s time to make your holiday wish list. Waterfront views, delicious cuisine, vibrant nightlife, the Acropolis…wait, what? Yep, you heard right. In the seaside city of Thessaloniki, you’ll spend your days relaxing on the Aegean Sea, exploring world-famous historical sites and picking out treasures at the local markets. Don’t let the sea breeze and laid-back vibes of the Macedonian region fool you into thinking this busy metropolis is sleepy after sunset, though!
Book Thessaloniki accommodation near your favourite scenic spots and social scenes, because you never want to be far from the best seats—or the best views—in the house. To save on even bigger city digs, book your Athens hotel and explore the Greek capital!
Things to Do in Thessaloniki
If you want to kick around a huge bay, then you’re in luck. Thessaloniki is a bay. Toward the middle of the shoreline is the White Tower, an ancient monument and museum that is really more tan than white—but that’s what hundreds of years in the sun will do to you. Next, dig in at the Archaeological Museum and Alexander’s Garden. Also near the waterfront is Aristotelous Square, a great place to mingle with locals at the market or one of the many city events. When you’re ready to strike out from the waterfront, climb to the hilltop castle of Eptapyrgio Kastra. You’ll have unbeatable views of Thessaloniki from the royal grounds and surrounding village, but make sure you make it back to the Valaoritou district for some drinks before—and after—dinner, then relax in one of our nearby Thessaloniki hotels.
Getting To & Around Thessaloniki
Catch a flight to Thessaloniki Airport (SKG), located about 11 km southeast of the White Tower, so hop on a bus or pick up a hired car (with Wotif, of course!) and let’s roll. But first, save on airfares and hotels in Thessaloniki when you book Thessaloniki holidays right here! Opa!
