Mother of Israel

A city with a stormy history and a cosmopolitan heart, Thessaloniki attracts visitors with its diverse culinary scene, dynamic nightlife, and youthful energy.
Explore Thessaloniki's surroundings by going to Kalogria Beach (in Nikiti), Cave of Alistrati (in Alistrati) and Delta Axios (in Chalastra). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to White Tower of Thessaloniki, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Agios Nikolaos Orphanos, examine the collection at Hellenic Pharmaceutical Museum, and contemplate the long history of Arch of Galerius.

Plan my Thessaloniki trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Jerusalem, Israel to Thessaloniki is an approximately 6-hour flight. Traveling from Jerusalem in October, things will get a bit cooler in Thessaloniki: highs are around 24°C and lows about 14°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) early enough to travel to Athens.

The Birthplace of Democracy

One of the world's most ancient cities, Athens remains Europe's undisputed historical and cultural capital.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Athens: Fortress Palamidi (in Nafplio), Corinth (Akrokorinthos, Corinth Canal, &more) and Ktima Palivou (in Nemea). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Acropolis of Athens, admire the masterpieces at Benaki Museum, take an in-depth tour of Acropolis Museum, and admire the natural beauty at National Garden.

To find more things to do, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Athens road trip app.

You can fly from Thessaloniki to Athens in 3.5 hours. Other options are to take a train; or drive. Expect somewhat warmer evenings in Athens when traveling from Thessaloniki in October, with lows around 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
