Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece, but in many respects, it is also the country’s culture capital. Filled with architectural and artistic attractions, renowned festivals and events – including an international trade fair and a film festival – and nightlife that is second to none, Thessaloniki is a cosmopolitan European city. A major seaport at the northern edge of the Aegean, the city’s history spans approximately 3,000 years and is a fascinating fusion of Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and Jewish influences. Thessaloniki rewards each of its visitors - it is a destination appreciated by sophisticated Greeks and discerning foreigners!
Although all of your transfers to airports, stations, harbors, and hotels have likely been
included in your TrueTrip experience, there will be instances where you will use a taxi
to get around. Always make sure that the driver starts the meter when you get in the
taxi and check the meter before you pay. If in doubt about a fare, please check with your
hotel concierge who is also able to arrange taxi pick-ups for you.
Although public transportation makes getting around quite easy, if you’d like to uncover
more of this location, you may want to rent a car; your hotel concierge can assist you
with making arrangements with a local car rental company. We always recommend
careful and cautious driving in Europe as roads can be old, narrow and with high
volumes of traffic.
