It was opened in 1930 and today is one of the most important airports in Greece, since it has connections with cities such as Athens, Rhodes, Corfu, Samos or Lemnos, among others. In addition, from this airport there are also flights to different cities in Italy and Spain such as Milan, Girona, Rome, Naples.

Thessaloniki information

Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city, is  full of culture, history and art, where you can enjoy beautiful views and monuments that will leave you speechless. 

What to see in Thessaloniki

- Church of Saint Sophia: Built in the 8th century, it is one of the oldest churches in the city and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In the thirteenth century it became a cathedral, later it was a mosque for five centuries and is now a Greek Orthodox church. The entrance to the church is free of charge and the building is a model example of Byzantine architecture.

- Rotonda of Galerius: Also declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO , this Byzantine church is believed to have been originally a temple dedicated to the god Zeus or a funerary site for Emperor Galerius. Its interior is very beautiful, full of mosaics and decorated with marble. Nearby, we find the Arch of Galerius, known as Kamara.

- Waterfront (Nikis): Nikis Avenue is a seaport that is worth strolling and relaxing, the views are wonderful. In addition, the promenade is decorated with many sculptures and monuments that do not go unnoticed. It is a part of the city full of life and very active, especially at sunset, which is also when you can admire the best views. 

- White Tower: It is a defensive tower facing the sea, it is also known as Lefkos Pyrgos. It is one of the main monuments of the city and many see it as the symbol of Thessaloniki. 

- Panaghia Chalkeon: Like the two churches mentioned above, it was declared a World Heritage Site and was converted into a mosque, although later it became an Orthodox church.

The papoutsaki, on the other hand, is similar to what we know as stuffed eggplant and the saganaki batzos is fried Batzos cheese with Tsipouro and lemon.
