THESSALONIKI CITY TOUR, 4 Hours

Since its founding by king Cassander of Macedonia in 315 B.C., Thessaloniki has always been a metropolis. The city was named after Cassander's wife, the stepsister of Alexander the Great, and its long history is visible everywhere in the varied architecture. You'll see beautiful examples of Hellenistic, Roman, Ottoman, and modern building styles sitting side by side. You'll be astonished by an impressive Byzantine artistic heritage and the mark left by the large Jewish population when the city was known as "the second Jerusalem" in the 18th and 19th centuries. 

Today, Thessaloniki is the second largest city of Greece with a population of about 1million people. It is the principle gateway from the Mediterranean to the Balkans and Central EuropeThis superb tour of Thessaloniki is an excellent way to get to know the city. We include some of the most memorable and important sights,such as the White Tower, the symbol of the city. We will visit the Archaeological Museum to see the unique collection of the Gold of Macedons and important finds from the Archaic, Classical and Roman periods. We will pass by the Fairgrounds and drive through the University area, the Citadel and the city walls from where you will have a marvelous view of Thessaloniki. We will then visit St’ Dimitrios Byzantine church, as well as the Galerius Arch and the Rotonda Monument.
