Top best things to visit in Thessaloniki!
Thessaloniki is the second-largest city in Greece and the capital of the region of Central Macedonia.

Thessaloniki has been dubbed as The Co-Capital, a reference to its historical status as the co-reigning city of the Byzantine Empire.

Aristotelous Square is the biggest plaza and the most central point of the city and it is located on the city’s waterfront.

Picturesque promenade is spanning for about 4.5 km and, during summer, is full of Thessalonians enjoying a lively atmosphere.

From the Aristotelous Square starts the main pedestrian mall of the city, the Aristotelous Street.

It leads to ancient Roman-era ruins, which there are many in the city. The most important are:
The Roman Forum.

The Rotunda of Galerius, the oldest church of the city and one of the oldest Christian churches in the world.
The Arch of Galerius, a monumental structure built to celebrate the victory over Persians.

The Palace of Galerius, one of the most impressive constructions and the heart of the roman city.

And the city’s most famous landmark, the White Tower, nowadays a history museum.

From the top of the tower is a nice 360-degree view of the city.

Visitors in Thessaloniki have the opportunity to admire a unique architecture and well-preserved Byzantine temples, such as:
The Hagia Sophia Cathedral, the largest basilica in the city.

The Metropolitan Orthodox Church, one of the most beautiful churches consecrated to St Gregory Palamas.

And the Church of St Demetrius, the main sanctuary dedicated to the patron saint of Thessaloniki.

There are numerous other fascinating spots around town worth a visit, like:
The OTE Tower, a 76-meter-tall construction.
Located next to it the Museum of Contemporary Art.

The Archaeological Museum, that holds artifacts from prehistoric times to late antiquity.

The National Theatre, a great acting school and a dance playhouse.
And the Royal Theater, that always shows excellent dramas.

But maybe the most interesting place is the Ano Poli, the former Ottoman quarter located north of the city center.

Literally called the Upper Town houses sites which are on the UNESCO World Heritage List, such as:
The Church of Hosios David.

The Vlatades Monastery, the only active priory, out of 20, in this quarter.

And the City Walls, the remains of fortifications surrounding the city from the early Byzantine period until the late 19th century.
But most people come here just for wonderful views of the city.
