Around Thessaloniki

For those who want to escape from the city from time, Thessaloniki’s surroundings can please every taste; Places like Chalkidiki, famous for its sandy beaches and vibrant nightlife, Mount Olympus, the ancient capital of Macedonians, Vergina, where the Royal tomb of Philip II, father of Alexander the Great is, and Kaimaktsalan and Seli Ski Resorts are only a few of the many destinations that are approximately one hour away from Thessaloniki. Also, trips to nearby islands like Skiathos and Alonissos, is always a nice way to spend a few days away from the city, while many students make their way to Greece’s most famous islands like Mykonos or Santorini. Our students often organise excursions and visit most of the Thessaloniki’s attractive surroundings during their studies.
