Thessaloniki driving itineraries

Explore Thessaloniki and Halkidiki

Mount Olympus

Hire a car in Thessaloniki and drive to spectacular Olympus, Greece’s highest mountain range. Explore the charming villages dotted around the foot of the mountain and take in this national park’s rich flora and fauna. If you’re feeling adventurous, hit the hiking and bike trails or ski slopes. Mitikas, the highest peak in Olympus, invites enthusiastic mountaineers. Or visit one of the many historic monasteries to be found around Olympus (please note that women are not permitted inside some monasteries).

Stagira

Drive your hire car to Stagira on the east coast of Halkidiki and visit Aristotle’s Park. Dedicated to the famous philosopher and scientist, this verdant space is a wonderful setting for a stroll on clement days. Take in fascinating exhibits dotted around the park, based on Aristotle’s philosophy and scientific discoveries. Admire magnificent views across the Gulf of Lerissos to Mount Athos.

Epanomi

Journey the short distance from Thessaloniki City to Epanomi and visit the Domaine Gerovassiliou winery. Stroll around the lush vineyard, tour the wine-making areas and learn about this fascinating process at the Domaine Gerovassiliou museum. If you’re not the designated driver, be sure to sample some of the high-quality produce of this award-winning winery.

Metéora

One of the essential things to do if you have a hire car on Thessaloniki holidays is a visit to the 8th wonder of the world, Metéora, near Mount Olympus. Marvel at the incredible spectacle of six Eastern Orthodox Greek monasteries suspended on lofty sandstone pillars. Admire the striking Athonite architecture of these historic buildings, including the dramatic 14th-century Great Meteoron. Breathtaking views, amazing frescoes and an excellent museum reward you after your challenging climb up the monastery’s winding staircase.
