Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki, Agiou Mina 11, Thessaloniki Greece

The Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki is housed in a historical building. We'll see the exhibitions on the old Jewish cemetery, traditional clothes and religious items from the old synagogues and a photo display on the history of the Jews in the city from antiquity to modern times. You can buy books and souvenirs from the small museum shop.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Monastir Synagogue, 35 Siggrou, Thessaloniki 54630 Greece

This is the only preserved old synagogue of Thessaloniki from 1927. It is known as the "Monastiriotes Synagogue", after the Jews who fled from the old town of Monastir (nowadays Bitola) to Thessaloniki. It has been recently renovated and is still used by the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki. It also houses a small exhibition in the same building.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Jewish Quarter of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki Greece

In the old marketplace area, we'll visit the so-called "new synagogue", Yad Lezikaron. This is currently operating every day for services and it housed in a modern commercial offices' building, where the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki is also located. Recently renovated.

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: Modiano Market, Platia Aristotelous Platia Aristotelous & Ermou, Thessaloniki 54600 Greece

The famous Modiano covered market used to house many small food shops, named after the city's architect, Eli Modiano. It is now under restoration, so we will be be able to see anything, but we'll see the building on the outside.

Pass By: Pazar Hamam, Komninon 17, Thessaloniki 546 24, Greece

This 15th century Ottoman public bathhouse is also know as "Yehudi Hamam", since it was mainly used by the numerous Jews who were living and working in the marketplace area around it.

Stop At: Holocaust Memorial, El. Venizelou 2, Thessaloniki 546 24, Greece

The Holocaust Memorial is by the seafront, on the Liberty Square. You'll see the sculpure which represents the holocaust with seven flames, in the shape of the Menorah and human bodies, created by Nandor Glid in 1997. You'll hear about the Black Sabbath day, which took place in the very same square.

Duration: 10 minutes
