Thessaloniki in Northern Greece is often considered Athens’ more cultured, stylish and younger cousin. On top of the hip and happening art galleries, shops, bars and restaurants in Greece’s second city, there is plenty of culturally enriching archaeological highlights, such as Roman forums and baths, which have helped Thessaloniki receive UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Along with plenty of live music, an annual film festival, and much in the way of theatre, opera, an array of diverse museums and charming golden beaches, it is easy to see why Thessaloniki appeals to a variety of tourists year after year.

Where to stay in Thessaloniki
After a day lapping up the cultural sights of the city, topping up your tan on the beach or working your way around in the many designer shops, you might want to nip back to your rented holiday accommodation to whip up an authentic Greek feast for the whole family; a large villa with pool and garden would be perfect for barbequing meat and fish, catching the last of the rays, and accommodating the whole family. If you like to get your Thessaloniki kicks in small doses then a rented house out in the countryside would be ideal, while if you prefer the idea of a short walk back to bed then a chic city-centre apartment is for you. HouseTrip offers holiday accommodation to meet all of these requirements and many more.
Thessaloniki with the family
Thessaloniki was awarded the European Capital of Culture back in 1997 and you can see why, as there is plenty to do to when it comes to learning and having fun for the whole family. In between days on the beach, and hanging out in cafes and bars, there are a number of museums to visit, including the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki and the Museum of Byzantine Culture, which proudly display the historic significance of the region. If you really want to get to know the region, what better place to visit than a food market, where you can pick up some local delicacies to cook back at home and interact with the locals.
