I've been so many times here,and i come again and again. This is one the most beautiful square i have seen. The square is very large and in the end u can see the sea,the view is great. I recommend to take a break and drink a coffee in some of many tavernas along the street.

There are many tavernas and gift shopr along the way. But in my point of view, you should visit Terkenlis Pattiserie for sure. It is a store offers a wide range of Greek and international sweet delicacies as well as several products and recipes carefully created according to the family baking tradition. Paskalya is my favourite.

Nice open space, lined with restaurants. Didn't like the sad looking stray dogs, would have loved to know they were cared for. Square was used for friendly protest at sunset.

You can rest and watch the pigeons flying around, perhaps you can feed them. There are many cafes and restaurants in the area. Close to market.. View of the see.

Large open square on the waterfront in Thessaloniki, situated between the restaurants in the old town and the main shopping areas. Coffee bars and fast-food line the square.

Aristotelous Square is the "traditional" center of the city. It depicts the combination of Thessaloniki's glorious past with it's present image; on one hand neoclassical beautiful buildings, open and closed traditional must-see markets and a spectacular view, on the other dirty buildings and roads, low quality/uber-high priced coffee shops, homeless people and drug addicts that no one cares about.

Apart from the White Tower represents a key city Landmark. Following the great fire of 1917 which destroyed most of the city, the authorities commissioned a french architect to remodel the core of the city. This gave birth to Aristotelian Square as we know it today. The square goes down from Egnatia Street towards the sea and offers a lot... More

If you have a meeting point that you know its easy to find this is one of the best spots. Most bus lines stop here and there are many things to do and see from around the square.
