Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: >> Skip altogether !!! Spend more time in Athens and Istanbul; much better value, real international cities - not just faking it with bad value and contrived attitude. If you must visit book a short stay initially and know where to get onward trasnsport Athens, Istanbul or other. One caveat: there is a lot of shopping for ladies there. So if this is what youvisit Greece for it may have a little more appeal for you.

Liked: It's nice, but ..

Disliked: Thessaloniki is far too pretentious in the new town for some reason that escapes me. Athens has everything Thessaloniki has three times over (archaeology, preserved ruins, museums, cafes, restaurants, bars, nightlife), except the snotty attitude. The prices for good hostels in Athens are close to half that of the best value ones in Thessaloniki; again why?!?!? There's nothing to see on the sea front it's an industrial harbour This is my second visit and I did see more of the city this time, I had a flight from there. I was really hoping that I would find that I was mistaken about the bad attitude in the new town and that maybe prices had copped-on, but no. >>>

Customer Travel Tip: Fly to Thessaloniki, stay one night if arriving late, then leave the next morning! There are better places in Greece...go there and forget about Thessaloniki!

Liked: nothing

Disliked: too many cars, too much traffic. A typical, ugly, noisy, big city with a few stupid "attractions" to keep the dumbed-down tourist masses distracted and busy and blind to the fact that Thessaloniki is a disgusting city.
