Heading to Thessaloniki for City’s Europa League first leg game against Aris FC?

Got a few hours to kill around the match? There’s plenty to see in this very attractive city, so we’ve picked five attractions that you might like to check out before heading off to the Kleanthis Vikelidis Stadium. Click here to see a map of Thessaloniki.

Nikis Avenue/the waterfront: Lined with bars and restaurants, Nikis Avenue looks out on to the harbour and is a great place to watch the city come alive in the evening.

Aristotelous Square (Plateia Aristotelous): Not square-shaped, but very much the centre of life in the city centre. Great architecture and near to the old market.

The White Tower: On the waterfront, this fortification from the 16th Century was built during Ottoman rule. Now the symbol of the city, it houses a museum on the history of Thessaloniki.

Archaeology Museum:  Not far from the White Tower, contains sculpture of the archaic, classical and Roman periods.

Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art: Modern art from Greece and further afield.
