Agias Sofias 24, Thessaloniki 546 22, Greece
Oyzoy Melathron is a rather nice restaurant hidden away in this cozy passage. It's a nice spot to grab lunch and get out of the hot sun. The service was wonderful and food delicious.

Agiou Dimitriou, Thessaloniki 546 33, Greece
Hagios Demetrios is known as the largest church in all of Greece, and while this interior doesn't look as large as other European churches, the entire building and grounds are a true showing of historic periods coming and overlapping one another....

Aristotelous 32, Thessaloniki 546 31, Greece
When I first came to Thessaloniki in 2006, my brother, father, and I saw these men congregating to talk, drink coffee, and play backgammon. Four years later, and here they are still. It's a true symbolism of the modern Greek male as a social...
Save Place
Thessaloniki 546 31, Greece
Up the hill between Aristoteles Square and Hagios Demetrios, you'll find an area of ancient ruins that once housed a marketplace (agora) and a bath house. I can only imagine when people gathered her to sell, buy, and share.

Thessaloniki, Greece
This ancient Byzantine church stood more as a relic kept inside iron gates. We snagged photos through the lush greenery that hides it.

Aristotelous 9, Thessaloniki 546 24, Greece
Koulouria (ko-loo-ree) are savory donut-shaped rings of bread made with yeast and covered in sesame seeds. For most Greeks, this is breakfast with a cup of coffee. No eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, pancakes, or waffles. Just one or two of these and...

Egnatia 144, Thessaloniki 546 22, Greece
This arch was actually part of a larger, long structure that lead to an ancient church known as the Rotunda of Galerius. A small park leads you to what's left of the Rotunda, but much of the structure of the arch was removed over time, with what...

Leof. Nikis 77, Thessaloniki 546 21, Greece
I love this shot. All along the coast of Thessaloniki you'll find a pedestrian-friendly waterway divided by a street filled with constant traffic in and out of the city. The White Tower was once the center of a Byzantine fortification that...

If you're in Greece, I don't care where you end up, make it a point to hit the beach at least one. The sea water, the sun, the relaxation. Just a moment to unplug and not worry about landmarks, ruins, and such. Just unwind.

Charalampou Mouskou, Thessaloniki 546 34, Greece
All the way at the top higher point of Thessaloniki are ancient walls from the Byzantine Empire. It's worth it to take a cheap tour bus and head up to the top, then walk down back to the main part of the city. This taverna isn't anything special....

Kalamaria, Greece
When visiting Thessaloniki, my fiance and I were invited to stay with some friends of the family in their beautiful home. It's high-rise of condos, but theirs was on the ground floor with access to this gorgeous yard and garden. Every day it was...
