GREECE TRAVEL GUIDE

Visiting Modern Day Thessaloniki   by John Hilde

Thessaloniki Featured Hotels

Thessaloniki- GreeceIf you are taking a trip to Greece, then probably the second most visited city would be Thessaloniki. A city of great historical significance, the modern day city is a bustling location full of historical sites and modern day conveniences.

It's a good idea to stay in a hotel near downtown or the Aristotle Square. This is the main area of the city and there are many sites to see in a relatively short distance. Aristotle Square is a big concrete park for pedestrians only. At the northern end of the square there are ancient ruins for you to walk through and explore, including a Roman Amphitheatre. Going down the south side of the square you'll come to a wide pedestrian only street with many shops, restaurants, and nicer hotels. Here you'll also find American establishments such as Starbucks and McDonalds, which may ruin the Greek mood.

Continuing down the street you'll come to the Aegean Sea or the Gulf of Thessaloniki. This is a very peaceful and beautiful walk. It's a great place to take a jog in the morning or take a romantic walk with your spouse. At night, this place comes to life as there are many cafes and coffee shops along the sea. There are many 20-30 year olds that go out every night and it's a great place to hang out to meet new people or just get the experience.There are also some great specialty shops in Thessaloniki as well. You'll see many shoe shops and women's clothing stores. While some of the prices may be a little high (especially with the Euro to dollar exchange rate), you'll still find some good deals. They'll also be tourist shops with everything to Greek armor and Greek helmets to statues of famous persons in Greece history. It will take a day or more just to walk around Aristotle Square and the sea walkway.
