Thessaloniki: The Mediterranean Palace Gives Tips for the Ultimate Getaway

The 5-star Mediterranean Palace hotel in Thessaloniki gives its point of view on Greece’s ‘co-capital’ and refers to just some of the reasons the port city can be included among the most popular ‘bucket list’ travel experiences in the world!

Located on the Thermaic Gulf in Central Macedonia, Thessaloniki is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city with attractions, unique experiences and numerous choices for today’s modern and demanding traveler.

The largest city in Northern Greece (and second-largest in the country), Thessaloniki combines its Byzantine history with the modern era in a unique way.

From the rich history pouring out of the Ano Poli (upper town) and Yedi Kule (Heptapyrgion – Byzantine and Ottoman-era fortress), the Rotunda (claimed by some that it is the oldest Christian church in the world) and the Saint Demetrius Church to the Kalamaria suburb and Aretsou district, with their traditional taverns, Thessaloniki is balances between multiculturalism, tradition and modernity.

Mediterranean Palace – the location

Ideally situated in the middle where everything is nearby, the Mediterranean Palace combines luxury and hospitality offering a unique sense of style.

The hotel is located next to the traditional “Ladadika” district and offers stunning views of the Thermaikos Gulf.

Revealing the social history of the destination, Ladadika is a historic district and a landmark area of Thessaloniki, next to the city’s port. For centuries Ladadika was one of the most important markets of the city. The district derives its name from the many olive oil shops in the area.

Today the Ladadika district serves as the meeting point in the city as it hosts a plethora of restaurants and nightclubs. Every night the vibrant cobblestone streets are bursting with life and entertainment in every corner.

Food and drink

A city under many influences, Thessaloniki is known for its rich cuisine and for having one of the best food scenes in Europe.

The city’s modern gastronomy manages to reverently preserve the traditional elements and highlight all influences with creativity. Traditional and other culinary products can still be found in the city’s colorful markets, where visitors tend to spend many hours among all the special tastes and scents.

TIP: Visitors must try the famous Koulouri of Thessaloniki (Greek bread ring covered with toasted sesame seeds), the city’s traditional Bougatsa (Greek custard pie with filo dough) and other syrupy sweets – Tsoureki, Trigona Panorama and Syropiasta!
