Grand Tour of Thessaloniki



A historical amalgam of ethnicities and cultures, Thessaloniki has left its distinct, indelible cultural mark on the region of Macedonia over the millennia.

This walk serves as a palimpsest of memories that will guide you through the city’s diverse time layers and phases of modern development. The itinerary starts with a bird’s-eye view of the city from the Vlatades Monastery and gradually descends towards the sea. You will be guided through busy squares, bustling markets, intertwined streets and landmarks of historical importance that bear witness to the city’s rich Hellenistic, Roman, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and modern bourgeois heritage. Points of interest include the Alaca Imaret, the Roman Agora, Aristotelous Square, the White Tower, the Hippodrome and the Rotonda of Galerius.
