Best places to see in Greece

Monastiraki Flea Market
Shopping areas
OK, think of a flea market. Now take away the market, and definitely take away the fleas. On most days these streets are lined with souvenir shops selling all manner of memento, but for the real-deal show up on Sunday. You'll see tables strewn with trinkets ranging from the regular to outright bizarre, plus plenty of matia - tiny blue baubles that ward off the 'evil eye'.

Church of Agios Dimitrios
Monuments
After the Great Fire of 1917, it took thirty years to rebuild this distinctive white-and-red brick church. Yet, there were two silver linings amid the destruction. Go inside to witness the early 7th-century Byzantine mosaic panels that were found during renovations. Then descend the stairs behind the altar to view the rediscovered crypt of Dimitrios, Thessaloníki’s patron saint.

Rotunda and Arch of Galerius
Monuments
This double act has held court here since the 4th century. Built as a mausoleum to Roman emperor Galerius, the Rotunda’s also served as a mosque and a church. Duck inside to gaze up at the Byzantine gold-mosaic ceiling that depicts the Second Coming of Christ. Then mosey down to the half-crumbling Arch, where locals meet day and night for lunch dates or drinks.

Thessaloníki Archaeological Museum
Museums
This museum holds historic treasures of the ancient Macedonia region made famous by Alexander the Great. Dig into collections that cover everything from Greek gods to Roman rulers – see the 2,000-year-old marble statues of cherubic Harpocrates and imperious Augustus. Then there’s the Derveni Krater, a hefty bronze wine jug from the royal court of Alexander himself.

Museum of Byzantine Culture
Museums
Thessaloníki was the Byzantine Empire’s second city for 300 years. This museum celebrates the rich cultural history of that time. Visit the Early Christian room that uses period columns, capitals and arches to recreate a 5th-century basilica. Then proceed to the Roman dining room that was excavated in recent years – its wall paintings and mosaic floor are remarkably well kept.
Accommodation near Museum of Byzantine Culture
Lycabettus Hill
Parks
See that hill that looks like an ice cream with whipped cream on top? That’s Lycabettus Hill, known for its stunning panoramic views, sloped walking trails and a teeny-weeny coffee shop with comfortable sofas. For those less inclined to walking up, ascend from the comfort of a funicular. You might see a wedding party at the Chapel of St. George if you’re in luck.
