Hello adventurous travellers! Me and my friend George, invite you to explore with us the unknown history of Thessaloniki! Get ready to discover the secret monuments of this ancient city that are buried with the passing of time. In this tour you will see a variety of small unknown churches and the most famous spots of the city. Both shape the important history of Thessaloniki. We are going to start at Kamara and head to our first destination which used to he the horseracing arena where people would gather and watch the horses and chariots race, like people do now with modern football! But there is a dark history behind what seems like a peaceful quiet street nowadays. Our next stop will be right next to Agia Sofia one of the biggest churches in Thessaloniki. However there are underground catacombs ready to be explored next to this famous church. After we get the first taste of this amazing experience we will visit the Ottoman baths or Paradise hamam as it was called. Apart from spending time underground, it was also common to have public baths everywhere in Thessaloniki! Of course we can't miss the Holy protector of the city Saint Dimitrios. Everyone knows about this famous church which is the most important symbol of early Christianity but who knows what's lied underneath the church? Then we have to try the most famous pastry of Thessaloniki at the best place! Enjoy with us the best Balkan sweet next to one of the most important churches for Christianity! Stick with us because there is still a lot to see! We can't miss the Musa Baba tomb in Ano Poli with the urban myth that surrounds this tomb! Walking back to our beginning point we will discover all the little secrets of Ano Poli and discuss the major role the city of Thessaloniki played in ancient times with Alexander the Great. Also our beautiful city played a major role during the Balkan and 1st World War as it has now one of the biggest war cemeteries in Europe!


Accompanied with a social theology and Christian culture graduate We will try the best pastry in Thessaloniki
