Thessaloniki School Tour is a four day tour of the city that was once the realm of Alexander the Great.

Greece School Tour

Greece’s second largest city was once the realm of Alexander the Great and was named after his sister, Thessaloniki, when it was founded in 316 BC. The capital of Macedonia in the north, the city sits in a bowl framed by low hills, facing a bay on the Gulf Thermaikos. Despite being one of the oldest cities in Europe, today Thessaloniki is lively and modern, and with its wide avenues, parks and squares.  Some feel that it is much more attractive than Athens.

The main squares are Platia Elefterias as well as Platia Aristotelous, both on the waterfront and alive with cafes as well as restaurants, children playing or people strolling. Thessaloniki, having been under Ottoman rule for long periods in its history, has been left a legacy of numerous Byzantine churches, and museums housing Byzantine art and artefacts. The city also has a heritage of early Christian communities, particularly the renowned monasteries of nearby Mount Athos; and a rich Jewish tradition, evident in the synagogues and Jewish Museum.
