2 days in Thessaloniki for couples
If one Greek city is ideal for travelling with your partner, this is definitely Thessaloniki. Its romantic aura predisposes for a city break filled with romance and unforgettable moments with your significant other.
Those of you who will be in the Nymph of Thermaikos for two days, will have enough time to enjoy the city at its best and rekindle the passion with your partner taking advantage of the romance all around you, while living your own fairy tale.
Your first day in Thessaloniki begins with aromatic coffee and rich breakfast at Pantheon, one of the busiest spots in the city centre. A walk along Nikis Avenue with the waters of the Thermaikos Gulf accompanying you in every step is necessary for a healthy dose of romance.
A must stop during your stay here is none other than the city’s landmark, the White Tower. Don't hesitate to go up to the last floor and take the most romantic selfie with Thermaikos Gulf and the city lying at your feet as your background.
For your lunch, Mia feta-Feta bar with its unique concept will leave you with the best of impressions. A taste & shop place, where cheese and dairy products in general are the absolute protagonist. Sweeten your partner with the delicious desserts of Ble, a bakery-patisserie that is really impressive.
It's time for another walk, this time a more traditional one. Visit Louloudadika with the outdoor florists to take in as many colourful images and fragrances as possible and buy some of your favourite flowers. A visit to the traditional Modiano and Kapani markets should not be missing from your daily schedule.
Enjoy your afternoon coffee from up high at the cafe of OTE Tower at Thessaloniki International Exhibition Centre. The timeless Clochard is ideal for a romantic dinner with suggestions from the modern Mediterranean cuisine. The evening finds you for drinks at the exceptional drink room of bord de l'eau, one of the most unique places in Thessaloniki.
A good beginning makes a good ending as they say, so choose Local for its excellent coffee and hearty breakfast. At the reference point on Paleon Patron Germanou Street organize your daily programme.
A walk up to Nea Paralia along Thermaikos Gulf and a visit to the Museum of Byzantine History is a must. There, at B. restaurant, you will find the perfect opportunity to recharge your batteries, enjoying a light lunch with Mediterranean proposals and some notes from the French and Italian cuisines.
In front of the Museum (Megalou Alexandrou Avenue) also departs the Cultural Bus line (No 50) of OASTH that takes you to Ano Poli and tours you to the historical and cultural monuments of Thessaloniki (Agia Sofia, Agios Dimitrios, Aristotelous Square, Rotunda, etc.).
What better way, then, than to say goodbye to the beautiful Nymph of Thermaikos with a breath-taking panoramic view? After admiring the view from the Walls, Tsinariou Square welcomes you into its friendly taverns. In the evening, choose Domatio me Thea in Aristotelous Square, on the top floor of Olympion, to write the perfect ending for your trip to Thessaloniki.
