Greece & Thessaloniki voted in Lonely Planet’s top 10

Thessaloniki, Greece ranked in fifth among the world’s top party cities in Lonely Planet’s new guide the 1000 Ultimate Experience.
Greece’s second city has style, with plenty of fashionable shops and salons. Thessaloniki boasts great nightlife during those long months when more famous Greek destinations are deep in hibernation, from arty cafes to Latin bars to discos pumping out house music to salacious bouzoukia (clubs featuring twangy, Eastern-flavored Greek folk-pop). That’s plenty to keep you occupied after you’ve traversed the sublime Byzantine churches, museums and ruins. It’s not cheap, but no Greek city save Athens compares.
Greece is listed as third best holiday destination for 2010 by Lonely Planet.
Seldom does a travel destination satisfy the blurbs that shout ‘has something for everyone’ but Greece truly does. Whether you’re there to poke around ancient ruins, soak in the sun on idyllic beaches, or party till you drop, Greece will leave you clambering for more. It’s guilt-free travel – a slice of history served alongside a healthy slice of hedonism – and everyone seems happy. You get to marvel at the dazzling clarity of the light and the waters, the floral aromas that permeate the air, the pervading sense of spirit – and then sit down to contemplate it all while consuming that great Greek combination of ouzo and octopus!
