A strong, innate desire to travel
Step with us into a city that beats with a pulse that sets your heart racing, but where the pace slows right down when you’re there. Where locals take time to live life to the full and 72hrs just won’t seem enough. Where the past blends effortlessly with present, east with west, ancient with modern. Once it was the Romans and Byzantines who thrived here, but now it’s another type of storyteller stealing the show in a city defined by an overwhelming spirit of creativity.
Welcome to Thessaloniki and Series 6 of Wanderlust Greece, the Digital Travel Show where guest presenters travel the length and breadth of Greece, broadcasting live on Discover Greece’s social media.
Welcome to ?Thessaloniki and Series 6 of Wanderlust Greece, the Digital Travel Show where guest presenters travel the length and breadth of Greece, broadcasting live on Discover Greece’s social media.
We’ll show you round the must-sees of Greece’s second biggest city – Artisitelous Square, the White Tower, the ancient walls of the upper city and so much more – but Thessaloniki today is more about how its incredibly mixed history blends so effortlessly into modern life.
Just why is Thessaloniki considered Greece’s culinary capital? What is it about the view of the Thermaic Gulf as you slowly sip a coffee (mandatory, by the way) that fills you with plans for the future? How come there are no rules on what time of day you can eat a bougatsa, the delicious semolina custard pie with filo pastry?
We’re going in search of the answers, taking you to the coolest districts for cocktails and rooftop dining, down the seaside promenade lined with bikes and strolling couples; we’ll be taking you round the best museums and showing you where to shop, and we’ll even head out of town for an escape – just an hour’s drive to Vergina (where Alexander the Great become king of the Macedons), to the foothills of Mt Olympus and onto some of the wine roads of Northern Greece.
Told you 72 hours wouldn’t be enough!
A rotating 360° view of the city from?OTE tower, while toasting to more wander-full days? Definitely YES! Cheers people!

Leave the daylight behind and wander around the majestuous past of Macedonian dynasty. The place where the royal burial tomb of Phillip II was unearthed is nothing less than impressive!

Today we visited ?Litochoro and it turned out to be a thrilling nearby escape from Thessaloniki. Small town with Macedonian traditional architecture all around, surrounded by the essence of the uncultivated nature of Greece and just a few km away from the sea. Look up and watch that spectacular view of Mt Olympus rising in front of you. The highest mountain in Greece was according to Greek mythology “home of the Greek Gods”. They clearly chose their home wisely, right?!
