Sights of Interest in Greece
The monuments of Thessaloniki06-10-2012 16:05The city’s long history is obvious since there are numerous monuments spread across Thessaloniki from different periods of history. It is worth visiting the Abbey of Lazaristes, the building of Macedonian Studies that guests the Theatre of Northern Greece, Olympion that became the centre of Cinema and the homonym Festival, Villa Bianca, the building of Red Cross, the Royal Theatre. All of them are of exceptional architectural interest, many of which you will see him on Vasilissis Olga’s Str.
Visit also the restored Modiano Forum, but also the famous area of Ladadika, where the heart of night life beats. There is also Telloglio where exhibitions and congresses take place. White Tower dominates the wharf and the Arch of Galerios on Egnatia Street, with Rotunda (temple of Saint Georgios). You can also visit Kemal’s house, in the courtyard of the Turkish Embassy, the building in which the Turkish national leader lived most of his juvenile period in Thessalonica.
Visit, also, the Archaeological Museum, with prehistorical, classical and roman discoveries, the Museum of Byzantine Culture, Folklore and Ethnological Museum, the Museum Ancient, Byzantine and Post Byzantine Instruments, the Museum of Macedonian War and the Arts Gallery.
In the limits of prefecture there are decades of localities of archaeological interest, as in Thermi, Pentalofo, in Sindos, in Aghios Athanassios, in Koufalia, in Nikopolis, in Liti, in Aghia Praskevi, in Rentina, in Asprovalta.
Thessalonica does not mean just culture. The natural environment surprises you starting from the fringes of the city. Unfortunately, an important piece of vegetation in Chortiatis River has been burned, but there are still regions with pinewoods and splendid view to Thermaikos Gulf.
Visit Koroneia Lake and Volvi Lake and enjoy the peacefulness of the landscape. In addition, the deltas of rivers Axios, Aliakmonas and Loudias are very interesting. These regions are protected from the Ramsar treaty as they are important hydro biotopes with big variety in flora and rare migrating birds. Visit the village of Scholari with the long age platans and the beautiful herons. On the lake banks of Volvis Lake there are spa water springs and spa installations, in the region of Nea Apollonia and Lagadas, too.
Touristorama has been travelling all around Greece and its islands for over a decade. This year, during our trip to Naxos, the biggest of the Cyclades complex, we discovered an interesting spot, perfect for your night out on the island… which is what we do best: finding the best places and then propose you should visit them! Prime is a Scandinavian Bar, located on a privileged position in Chora of Naxos, opposite the port. It’s been operating for 21 years and enjoys a great fame to both foreign and local tourists.
The Marmita Restaurant is now a part of the history of Santorini, since it has been operating in Megalochori since 2004. From 2013 it s been running under the observation of new owner Giannis Manikas and the sense of renewal is obvious.
It opened in 2004 and soon became one of the favourite dining spots in Santorini. It is called Metaxy mas which means.. between us, but it is not a secret any more that this restaurant has a rich menu with almost 40 different dishes and appetizers based on traditional Greek cuisine.
Like a relay race of three generations; a journey with happy days, sad days, joys, sorrows, wars, Occupation, poverty, hunger, deaths, volcanic eruptions, catastrophic earthquakes, flee for a better life, return, better days, feasts, tourism explosion, financial crises and so on… Everything has been indelibly inscribed on the walls of this small building, Aktaion. I feel grateful that life has given me the opportunity to hold the reins of Aktaion all the way to its centennial.
We have been choosing Parea Tavern for our meals and dinners for 14 years! Every time someone from Touristorama travels to the island of Santorini, he enjoys authentic Greek cuisine at the terrace of this restaurant in the heart of Fira. And we are not the only ones. Thousands of tourists include it among their favorites on the volcanic island.
Explore the fascinating volcanic island of Santorini the way you want it yourself! Enjoy a unique accommodation experience, with huge doses of privacy and luxury by choosing to stay in Incognito Villa.
