Thessaloniki is the second-largest city in Greece, with over 1 million inhabitants in its metropolitan area, and the capital of Greek Macedonia
People are attracted like magnets to the huge arms of this city-port that seems to constantly close an eye to destiny, close and open circles, flourish and decay – without ever going unnoticed! Travelers, merchants, Romans, Jews, Ottomans, Asia Minor refugees, Balkan people, allies and enemies, friends, conquerors: they have all passed from here, adding their own tessera to this incredible mosaic called Thessaloniki. It is worth tasting, literally, as it is famous for its Greek cuisine, nibbles and desserts, but also figuratively, as it has its own unique ambience and many interesting attractions.
Shopping is one thing that you will definitely enjoy during your stay in Thessaloniki. The city offers plenty of options so that no taste or wallet are left unsatisfied.
