Nice cafes and views

After a walk by the sea, we ended here for lunch. There are many cafes surrounding the square. Try to sit outside and choose a seating where you can also view the sea.

It's a nice place, close to the sea, and with lots of places to eat and drink. It reminds me a litlle of Lisbon, so it's nice :).

We stay one night in our travel to Lefkada. Much coffee restaurant, Starbucks coffee and sandwiches bar. But the view to the sea are fantastic and is romantic place to walk.

Nice square open to the sea. One of the things you don't have to miss while you are in Thessaloniki is seeing the statue of Aristotel on this square.

Walk in any direction and you'll find shops, merchants, restaurants and ancient ruins. If you're unsure where to go in Thessaloniki, start here.

Aristotelous square gives you an idea of how the city centre would be if the authorities had followed Ernest Hebrard's redevelopment plan after the 1917 fire. The opportunity was missed and now we're left with this area as a reminder of what might have been. No surprise that it's totally different to the rest of Thessaloniki. It's not perfect, but...

This is a real nice square to meet people and to have a great cappuccino at one of the many terraces or to eat a nice meal in the open air.

Beautiful square in the heart of town. Settle down in one of the cafes for a respite from the heat. Great for people watching. Nice cafes and bars all around.

Although from afar this square looks quite impressive and inviting actually waking through it leaves you certainly disappointed.. There is nothing much there..plenty of average cafes like everywhere... No interesting stores.. Since very nice looking sweet shops and that is about it.. Ah and lots of gypsies..
