I am planning on a trip to Thessaloniki in March, 2014. Arrive on a Saturday, stay a few nights, then head to Athens,
I am reading that train travel, if you do not mind the 5-6 hour ride, is fairly economical. Agean Air looks to do a flight for 22,00... once you add taxes and all, it's 188,00 for two, return trip.
If I book early, sounds like train is fairly inexpensive... Is this correct?
My wife and I love history and museums, ruins, and general excursions. Would those three days (2 1/2 really) in Thessaloniki be enough, heading to Athens for 4-5 days?
Sorry so many comments, this will be a new adventure for us, as we have not been East of Rome when it comes to European travel.
What are the must-see/do in Thessaloniki? Car rental requires or is most of what we would be interested in doing in public transport or walking distance of the city?
