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.

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"!

Thessaloniki has sooo much history behind it and it's so beautifully affected by all that history. The cobalt streets and the old churches, along with the old buildings create a magic atmosphere around this town. If you are planning to take a walk around Thessaloniki, make sure you visit the St. Demetrius's church, he is the patron saint of Thessaloniki.... More
