Where to Stay

Where to stay

Deciding where to stay in Thessaloniki should be dependent on what kind of holiday you want to have. If you’d like to be close to the imposing historic architecture, monuments and museums then the historic centre would be the right place for you to stay. That said, public transport will allow you to reach all points of the city with relative ease. The vibrant Ladadika district might just be perfect if you want to be close to the thrilling nightlife that the city is most famous for, as this district contains many of the entertainment venues and tavernas. In the Kapani district, you’ll find the central city market and many shops. The Ano Poli district is located in the north of the city and is one of the few parts that was not engulfed by the great fire of 1917. This historic district features some of the oldest architectural delights in the city, and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Of all of the churches in Thessaloniki, the oldest is the Rotunda. The Rotunda began life as a temple to Zeus and is almost as old as the Pantheon in Rome.

Eating and Drinking

Eating and drinking

When it comes to deciding where to wine and dine in a city like Thessaloniki, you’ll find yourself spoiled for choice with many options before you. Regional cuisine in Thessaloniki takes considerable inspiration from Turkish roots, as the city remained under Ottoman rule for one hundred years longer than southern Greece. The resulting Eastern character of the local cuisine is clearly evident in the diverse flavours that are distinctly different from popular cuisine in southern Greece. Thessaloniki is considered by greeks to be a gourmet city with excellent local specialties and mouth-watering fresh dishes available at the ouzo taverns. The region boasts a wide range of restaurants that serve traditional Gyros and Souvlaki - a carnivore’s delight, with pork and chicken. Local sweet dishes include Tsoureki, which is a plaited sweetened bread, and desserts such as Baklava are popular and commonplace. The city is also home to many up-market international restaurants.
