Thessaloniki is the second biggest city after Athens, yet it sees little tourism. It’s a tourists paradise – honestly. The amount of signs telling you the history of all the monuments, the sign posts telling you how many minutes to walk somewhere (some even have the amount of calories you’ll burn lmao!) and the amount of things you can see and do even on a budget!
I loved Thessaloniki, so i’m calling it ‘the heart of Greece.’. Delphi may be the centre, but Thessaloniki stole the heart. As our tour guild said; Thessaloniki is what it is hiding, not what it is showing.
The history of Thessaloniki is strong, in 1917 a fire left 70,000 people homeless and destroyed 9,500 houses.  It was a place that people called home, as nobody is without a home as long as Thessaloniki exists. The word you’ll read/hear the most is UNESCO – and you’ll surely see why by reading this, and when you visit.

When discussing Athens, a lot of people seem to not like it. They don’t like it when they arrive, they leave after a few days and don’t let this massive city grow on them. Big cities enhance your feelings; there is too much processing. You need to stop, go to a cafe, people watch and take it easy.
Athens is full of great food, great people and great coffee! You just need to keep your wits, trust your guts and do some research before hand.
