Thessaloniki, a historic port city on the Aegean is the second-largest city in Greece and widely regarded as the cultural capital of Greece, and is a popular year-round destination. In addition to history, culture, and architecture, Thessaloniki is renowned for its shopping and cuisine, especially bougatsa, a flaky, custard-filled pastry.
Often referred to as a “three-fingered paradise,” Halkidiki in northern Greece consists of a triad of stunning peninsulas with sandy beaches, secluded bays and lush green forests that meet the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea. It is most popular for summertime travel. Kassandra, the westernmost, is the most visited and resort-oriented; Sithonia, the middle peninsula, is blessed with almost 100 beaches and attracts nature lovers; and the third, the monastic state of Mount Athos, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that includes 20 Orthodox monasteries.
