Thessaloniki Museums and Excursions
For museum fans, Thessaloniki will not disappoint! In addition to the well-known Archaeological Museum, you can explore many interesting exhibits at the Museum of Byzantine Civilization; the Museum of Contemporary Art; the Goulandri Museum of Natural History; the Museum of Photography; the Museum of Technology; the Jewish Museum, and even a variety of museums devoted to sports, cinema, and water supply!!
If your base is Thessaloniki, you have the opportunity to explore several nearby attractions, such as Mount Athos and Vergina, both World Heritage Sites, and the Petralona Cave and Anthropological Museum in Halkidiki. If you’re interested in spending some time in the region of Halkidiki (well-known on the map with its three-fingered peninsulas jutting into the northern Aegean), you can find more information on our website. Just refer to the main menu on the left, click on “Browse Greece,” then select “Macedonia.”
For nature lovers, the region of Pella offers some of the most outstanding and extraordinary natural scenery in the country, including waterfalls, wetlands, pine forests, caves, rivers, gardens, and thermal springs and spas. It is a wonderful area for exploration, whether by trekking, rafting, bicycling (mountain bikes, of course!), or with modern 4 x 4 vehicles.
