3 days in Thessaloniki for singles
Thessaloniki is the city that never sleeps. The city where the fun is through the sky. The city with the countless choices for all of you who travel solo. The most suitable city to enjoy your holidays by yourself and have as much fun as if you were with someone else. Its warm and hospitable residents will make you forget that you are traveling alone, giving you the opportunity to make new friends to come back to visit it again and again.
If you have three days at your disposal to experience the beautiful Nymph of Thermaikos, the choices are plenty to get a full picture of the beloved Thessaloniki.
The city's landmark, the White Tower will be your first stop during your visit to Thessaloniki. Afterwards, head to Navarinou Pedestrian Street to admire the Arch of Galerius (also known as Kamara) and the Rotunda. A coffee break is called for and there is no better choice than the bustling Iktinou and Zefxidos pedestrian streets. There, Pasta Flora Darling with its cult character will become your favourite spot.
Noon has arrived and High School Pizza Bar on Nikis Avenue seems to be the most delicious option, with Italian cuisine suggestions. After you recharge your batteries, a window shopping on Tsimiski, Mitropoleos, and Proxenou Koromila streets is ideal for shopping lovers.
The evening is approaching and a coffee at one of the established haunts downtown seems to be a great choice. On Proxenou Koromila Street, you will find Pantheon, one of the busiest spots in the region.
Wrap up your first day in the beautiful Thessaloniki with a drink in one of the renowned downtown bars, such as Vogatsikou 3 and Hostel 9, which are famous for their unique cocktails, and don’t forget La Doze, with its up-to-date bar in rare tequilas.
Wake up without any concern and organize your second day in the Nymph of Thermaikos enjoying a rich and hearty breakfast in Local, one of the most popular all-day spots downtown. Visit the famous Cinema Museum at the port warehouses and enjoy the view of the Thermaikos Gulf, while walking towards Thessaloniki Concert Hall, along the renovated Nea Paralia, with the various theme parks.
From there, head to Kalamaria and Nea Krini for a mid-afternoon tasting experience by the sea. At Aretsou Marina, you will find taverns and restaurants, which are famous for their fresh fish and seafood.
In the afternoon a coffee in the much-photographed Aristotelous Square is a must. Nibble something in one of the small and fancy taverns of the town (Vidanio is an excellent proposal) and round off your day with a glass of wine in Sinatra or Salto wine bars downtown.
The last day of your trip to Thessaloniki is filled with new experiences. After enjoying your coffee and snack in any of the Paradosiako chain stores in the centre, visit some of the most important museums of the city. First, pay a visit to the Archaeological Museum and the Museum of Byzantine History. Modernist fans should not miss out on the Teloglion Foundation of Art, where the largest part of its collection consists of works by important 19th and 20th century Greek and European artists.
Ladadika will be your next stop for a delicious lunch break. Paparouna restaurant is the definition of value for money philosophy and fun. After you recharge your batteries, set sail for a shopping therapy at Mediterranean Cosmos, in the eastern part of the city. It is a highly fashionable mall, where you can spend easily many hours.
Bid farewell to the beautiful Thessaloniki from its most picturesque spot, Ano Poli. After admiring the view from the Walls, Tsinariou Square welcomes you into its friendly taverns.
