Thessaloniki is Greece’s second city, tucked away on the northeastern coast of the country; the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Turks and Jews all passed through this seaside metropolis, leaving their architectural and cultural mark on today’s edgy, 21st-century university city. Stacked with quality shopping, seafood restaurants and a legendary nightlife leading off the seafront promenade, Thessaloniki comes alive at dusk as families and friends step out in their hundreds to take in the air.

The city resembles an open history book; the Roman forum and triumphal arch date from the third century AD, while the Byzantines legacy is spotted in the remaining city walls, the basilica of Agios Dimitrios Basilica and the remains of the castle. Ottoman influences kick in from the 15th century onwards; the dumpy White Tower, the hamams in the old town and the mosques were all constructed during this time.
