Ano Poli: a Tour to the Old Town of Thessaloniki
The old town of Thessaloniki located around the city’s acropolis is famous for its beautiful traditional architecture, small taverns, and fantastic scenic views.
This tour begins by visiting Trigonion tower where the view is just astonishing! Then you will visit Yedi Kule, a Byzantine and Ottoman-era fortress converted to a prison, many references of which exist in the Greek rebetika songs. The tour will continue with the “Moni Vlatadon”, also known as “Tsaous Monastery” (UNESCO Heritage).
The next visit is the Christian Orthodox Church of Ag. Dimitrios, the patron saint of the town. The church is part of the paleochristian and Byzantine Monuments of Thessaloniki (also on the list of UNESCO Heritage Sites). In the basement of the church, you can visit the catacombs.
Afterward, you will visit the Ancient Market. This spot was the center of activities of Thessaloniki for about 8 centuries, almost from the foundation of the town. Your tour ends with a nice meal at a nearby taverna where you will have the opportunity to try some local specialties!
