The city of Thessaloniki is a vibrant modern metropolis. Built on the waters of the North Aegen sea, the city and its 1 million inhabitants are renowned for their hospitality and easy going lifestyle. It takes a walk on the "paralia" -the longest urban waterfront in Europe- to relax and feel the charm of
this unique Greek city. It takes a few hours in the city center to turn a stroll into time travel: from Alexander the Great and Aristotle the philosopher, to the inventive Romans or the pious Byzantines through to the lofty Ottomans and the cosmopolitan contemporary Greeks.
It takes less than a two-hour drive to the divine Mt Olympus for a climb or to the emerald waters of Halkidiki for a swim; add an hour or two to your day trip and visit Vergina, Pella and Dion to admire the grandeur of the Kingdom of the Macedons. Thessaloniki is the second biggest city in Greece and a regional business hub and shopping Centre with an active commercial port, a significant local industrial activity, and the largest academic and research community in the country. The city is easy to explore. You can go anywhere in about 30 minutes. The climate is no exception: typically, Mediterranean with warm-to-hot summers, mild winters and an annual average of 300 days of sunshine.
