Living in the second largest city in Greece -Thessaloniki is ideal. Modern architecture, stunning beaches, byzantine churches, crumbling ruins and intense nightlife- this is the essence of Thessaloniki. Salonika (famous nickname), is the capital of frappe (read the Athens guide) and gyros(the most well known food in Greece). The best place to find the above is Ladadika str. (we wrote a whole song for this Str.).
However, if you are a dessert junky like me (dessert goes to the heart), you should go to Tsimiski str. and try the amazing Easter sweet bread with chocolate and chestnut from Tenkerli (no paid ad, just a huge fan). Just a heads up, don’t be surprised if you see as you pass by, people with extravaganza outfits (no, they are not dressed up from the night before), they just enjoy taking care of themselves.
