Thessaloniki, Greece or “Not all those who wander are lost”

Thessaloniki is Greece’s second major economic and commercial city, considered to be Greece’s cultural capital. It is a beautiful and busy city with a waterfront board walk full of vendors and close to restaurants and shops. Thessaloniki is a great city to spend the day in. It is fun to walk around and visit the trendy shops and cool down with a cone of gelato (ice- cream).

There are several museums to visit in the city, the day we went most of them were closed, so we didn’t get to visit any. There is also a great walk you can do around the ancient city walls to get a great view of the big city. This is fun if you have some extra time and as long as its not too hot out!

Thessaloniki gives off a more cosmopolitan vibe than Athens does and is less touristy, which comes as a relief! I definitely recommend taking a trip there while in Greece.
