Melting pot for food and arts
Thessaloniki has traditionally been referenced as the beautiful city of Northern Greece with its signature seafront owning much of its uniquely slow pace. Dubbed as the perfect city for students, Thessaloniki boasts young talent, great food and an eye for new trends.
Although tourism is not a key priority, the city officials have been trying to put it on the map for quite some time most notably through the infamous International Film Festival hosted every November. Culture and arts aside, the city has been growing in small interesting food finds and an abundance of cafés. Try exploring these with our unique travel guide!
