Get a tour of the most interesting city that was crowned the Erasmus Destination of the Year at EGM in 2022! We are going to start at Aristotelous square where the east and west parts of the city connect through the bus system. If you look at it from above it looks like a vodka bottle! After the great fire of 1917 the French architect Hernest Hebrar was given the task to design the centre of Thessaloniki including Aristotelous square. Then we will head to the Ancient Roman market where we will discover the hidden markets and bars as well as find out the great controversy found in this ancient forum. Next we head off to the university student area, this is where all the hustle and bustle happens! Right next to the campus and underneath the imposing church of Rotonta (unesco monument), we all come here to have fun and meet new people. Also discover the cooperative bars and bookshops owned by the young proletariats! Taste the beer which is made in our city and see how it feels like to be a university student in one of the oldest bars which is found at the most youthful area. Here a surprise is waiting for you! Of course we can't miss Kamara (the arch of Galerious) from this tour as it is a big meeting spot and it is always live 24/7. Having got a idea of the nightlife, we will go at Navarinou street which is full of small shops,coffee shops and street food. Here are some local gems that are very special such as cool streetwear stores where you can find fashionable, sometimes one-of-a-kind clothes and accessories. Finishing our tour I will give you a personalised list of foods to try and places to visit while you are here. Discover all the aspects that make this city special-from anarchist squats to traditional craft shops. Connect with the locals and hear out their own point of view about the nightlife here. All in all, this tour explores the nightlife of Thessaloniki and all the essentials that you should know about! You will be encouraged to try some local drinks and beer as well 🙂 Don't hesitate to contact me about any dates you are looking for or if you want to book me and my colleague's historical tour of Thessaloniki
