Idyllically located on the coast of the Aegean Sea, Thessaloniki is a great year-round destination where there’s always something to see and do. This bustling mainland Greek port city is packed with ancient archaeological sites, contemporary art exhibitions and plenty of independent shops and restaurants serving fabulous Greek recipes.

Fly to Thessaloniki with British Airways and explore this beautiful Greek city by foot. From a well-preserved Roman Agora in the centre of town to the Rotunda and Arch of Galerius, the city is full of history. Take a break at one of the welcoming waterfront cafes, which are the perfect place to stop and watch the world go by. You’re never far away from a traditional bougatsa in Thessaloniki, and this flaky, custard-filled pastry is best enjoyed with a strong Greek coffee.
