Thessaloniki — Greece’s co-capital, also known as ”the lady of the North” and ”the bride of the Thermaic Gulf,” is known as one of the most vibrant alternative destinations in Greece.
For those who want to enjoy a relaxing experience full of history, beautiful nature, culture and countless options for entertainment and fun, Thessaloniki is the place to be this autumn.
October and November offer ideal conditions for anyone who is lucky enough to be visiting Thessaloniki during this time. The season’s cooler temperatures allow long strolls and sightseeing tours, while the weather is still mild enough to spend a day at a nearby beach or enjoy a coffee by the port.
Featuring a population of approximately one million, Greece’s “second city” is a metropolis featuring numerous options for its guests. These options include the city’s many museums, such as the Archaeological and Byzantine museums, in addition to city break-style tours of the city’s numerous historical monuments. These tours can be complemented by a relaxing stroll along Nikis Avenue and the city’s restored waterfront.
Autumn in Thessaloniki is also a time where one can fully experience the city’s rich cultural life.
For instance, at the 53rd Demetria festival, running for nearly a month from late September until late October, visitors have the chance to enjoy theatrical performances, concerts, visual arts, photography, and cinema.
With more than 42 main events and other side events composing the festival’s core lineup, this fall’s Demetria Festival is sure to please.
