Thessaloniki Walking Tour
Thessaloniki walking tour will give you an insider’s view of some of the most interesting things to do in the city.
If you are in Thessaloniki just for fun, then you are certainly at the right place! This city offers plenty of options to choose from, so pick wisely. In this article we will present to you our favorite habits and activities in Thessaloniki.
1| A morning visit to the new and award-winning seafront is mandatory. Enjoy the ride on the 5 km bike route by renting a bike from BikeIt, where you can find many kinds of bicycles, from mountain bikes and foot bikes to four seaters for family fun! It is located on the sea side just in front of the Makedonia Palace hotel.
2| After this maybe it is time to drink a cup of coffee and to eat something light. Opposite the White tower you will find an excellent patisserie with Oriental sweets. Find a table to seat and enjoy the amazing view of the city’s landmark on your left hand, the mount Olympus just across and the port on the right side. Really refreshing!
3| Not far from there are the Archaeological and the Byzantine museums. Visit them to get a direct picture of Thessaloniki’s long and rich history. More than 4000 prehistoric Macedonian and Early Christian artifacts and artworks are displayed. You won’t regret your visit!
4| Our next suggestion is full of flavors and aromas! Walk approximately 1.5 km west, along the Tsimiski street and find at the Ermou street the Modiano and the Kapani markets. Wander through the picturesque alleys with your senses wide open, in order to see, smell, taste and feel the originality of this place. It still operates as it used to a century ago! Fresh fruits and fish, meat and spices, olives and all the blessed Mediterranean goods will be found there, so don’t miss the chance to try them.
5| Probably after your visit to the markets, you will have an appetite for something tasty. We won’t suggest you to try gyros (because likely you already have), but pizza! Yes, pizza! Pizza is also very popular in Thessaloniki and the best place to taste a delicious slice is just 2 minutes away, in Valaoritou district. Try the Pizza Poselli, which is named after the architect Vitaliano Poselli who is known for the design and construction of some of the most beautiful buildings in Thessaloniki, and one of them is hosting the pizzeria.
6| As for the evening, we strongly recommend a boat cruise in the Thermaic gulf with our favorite Klio cruise bar. Enjoy the sunset with a cocktail or a beer and, while listening to ethnic and world music, leave yourself to the sea breeze and the beautiful view of Thessaloniki from a unique point of view!
