Holidays To Thessaloniki

No one rocks the waterfront quite like Thessaloniki, Greece.

Located on the Aegean Sea in Greek Macedonia, this busy port curves around the coastline, so no matter where your Thessaloniki holiday takes you in Greece’s second-largest city, gorgeous views are never far away. The “Bride of the Thermaic Gulf” is waiting with centuries of history on every street and just as many shops and flavours to discover, so get the scoop on Thessaloniki deals with Wotif and get going!

Things to Do in Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki holidays are a mix of chilling out and staying on your feet. We know that you could be completely content sitting on the edge of the Aegean with a glass of wine and wet feet—in fact, that’s actually a good place to start. The city creates a large bay, and toward the middle you can visit the White Tower—which is really more beige, if we’re being honest—and Aristotelous Square, where there’s always an event or open market to get in on. Also within walking distance are the digs at the Archaeological Museum and Alexander’s Garden. The latter is named after Alexander the Great, who locals say is kind of a big deal. When you’re ready to strike out from the waterfront but aren’t sure what to see first, pick up one of our convenient Thessaloniki car rental options and drive up to the hilltop castle of Eptapyrgio Kastra. From the royal grounds and surrounding village, you’ll have unbeatable views of Thessaloniki. Pack a picnic (and a bottle of wine) and watch the sun set over the water.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Thessaloniki is home to outlet malls, second-hand shops and unique boutiques and markets. To sample a little bit of everything without straying far from sightseeing, shop your way through the square formed by Egnatia Street, Ethnikis Amynis Street, Venizelou Street and Nikis Street (right on the waterfront). Save with one of our awesome Thessaloniki packages to ease the splurge. Oh, and pack an empty suitcase.

Welcome to Greece’s “culinary capital”, where they take eats and treats very seriously. For a mix of indie cafes and archaeological excavations, eat your way through the old Roman Forum—yes, in Greece. Located uptown, Ano Poli offers a homier feel with restaurants in old houses serving up family recipes and traditional delicacies, like seafood meze (mixed small plates).

When the sun goes down, you can always wander along the waterfront and stop in for cocktails and conversation, but if you want to raise the level of shenanigans, Thessaloniki can do that too. Just north of Aristoleous Square, the district of Valaoritou offers narrow, tavern-lined streets and a big student population. It’s a little whimsical, a little grungy and a lot of fun.

What’s Next?

Ready to eat and explore your way through one of Greece’s national treasures? Book one of our sweet Thessaloniki holiday packages to save on the airfares and accommodation that’s right for you. While you’re kicking it with the Greek gods and floating the Aegean, enjoy an Athens holiday too. Apollo would approve!
