Thessaloniki is not like Athens...further to the north and I would describe it as a different environment when compared to the island or Athens itself. Up until the late 1930s, this was a thriving area. They were set back probably thirty years when the Nazis arrived. Great location to land...rent a car...and just drive around for a week, with no worries about crime or anti-Americanism.
True. It’s closer to Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania than Athens.
