Cruises from Thessaloniki
Thessaloniki is the capital of Greek Macedonia, and has a history that dates back to the fourth century BC. The rebuilt 20th-century city has a modern European layout, and is a hub for international trade and culture. Regarded by many as Greece’s ‘hippiest city’, the influence of the east is pronounced, both in the delicious food and the relaxed lifestyle. History-minded visitors will visit the many museums with their great displays of artefacts from, for example, Sindos and Vergina.
There are also many notable Byzantine monuments, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and several Ottoman and Sephardic Jewish structures.
