I was so surprised going to Thessaloniki, I did not do much research prior to go as we were just arriving at the airport to head to Meteora for a weekend. On the way back we ended up with half a day to spend here and I could not believe how many churches and monuments and history there is in... More

The UNESCO monuments and churches in Thessaloniki are world-wide known for their beauty and for their preservation through the rough history of the city. You can see Byzantine churches almost everywhere in the city, even behind the apartment blocks and monuments situated on the pedestrian zones (like the Arch of Galerius). The city's geographical position makes possible for great views... More

Overall great places to visit, especially if you are not use in the orthodox religion, all seems so strange and you feel very attracted. Some are well conserved, other not. The worst surprise was the castle (Heptapyrgion) at the top of the hill: UNESCO protected treasure ... so protected that it was closed with a chain and a lock, and... More

Some fine old churches and other monuments around the city are worth the walk. It´s hard to know the opening hours of the churches. As in other churches around Greece: places are open when they are open ;)

...Paleochristian (early Byzantine) and Byzantine Monuments are all gathered in Thessaloniki! It is most convenient that one can visit many of them in 2-3 days, and a great alternative if you are bored with the pre-Christian more ancient monuments of Greece. Many of these monuments are so important that they are part of the UNESCO international heritage list! Many of... More

Thessaloniki has so many to offer! So much history around, and all of that can be easily reached during one long walk! Byzantine Monuments are the best part of the city, you can see how the whole area has changed during all those years and feel the atmosphere. Being inside the history its a great feeling, indeed.

If you are into monuments, museums and tours in the city, then Thessaloniki will be your element. Lots of monuments around the city, most of them very well preserved and "visitable"!
