Immerse yourself in the history of Thessaloniki, wander through the market and discover its cafés and shops with this walking tour. Explore the hidden corners known only to locals and stroll from the historic Heptapyrgion fortress through the maze of streets and alleys of the old town, passing Byzantine and Ottoman era monuments.
Visit the church of St Demetrius, the patron of the city, and the ruins of the Roman Forum, before arriving at the elegant Aristotelous Square, which opens on to the sea. In the market, the colourful stalls and the din of loud stallholders hawking their wares will transport you to what can seem like an oriental bazaar. Observe the hustle and bustle and maybe haggle over prices and pick-up a bargain.
Enjoy a snack in a traditional tavern to refuel for more explorations or relax while savouring an ice-cold frappé. Maybe continue browsing the stalls and shops... it's up to you how to end your walking tour through the Thessaloniki of yesterday and today.
