Cheap flights to Thessaloniki

We all know about Athens, but if you are looking for a real flavour of Greece you should head to the country’s second city Thessaloniki. Well, it was named after the sister of Alexander the Great and you can’t get much more Greek than that.  As all proud inhabitants will happily inform you,

Thessaloniki differs from busy and bustling Athens with its elegance and style – let’s just say designer clothes and beautiful people rule in this town. Yet despite its age – Thessaloniki is an old city having been founded way back in 315 BC – the city scrubs up very well and is today a modern one of large avenues, parks and squares, tree-lined streets, and Neoclassical and contemporary buildings.

History buffs will love this place: there aren’t many cities that can boast to having lived through the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, so there is lots to see. If you like your old Byzantine churches with beautiful frescoes, or ancient Roman ruins, you’ll love it here.
