Thessaloniki is the second-largest city in Greece and cultural capital for its numerous festivals and events. With more than 3,000 years of existence, Thessaloniki is a real historical gem where you will find remains from the Roman Empire, Byzantine and Ottoman era.
The White Tower is the most recognisable landmark, located by the sea and surrounded by cocktail bars. The Arch of Galerius dated back to 297 AD and was the ancient city's gate. The Church of Saint Demetriou is the main church in Thessaloniki and a must-see attraction. We also suggest visiting the Archaeology Museum, the Museum of Byzantine Culture and the Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki.
