Activities in Thessaloniki are limited. There are almost no chances for active holidays in the city center. The most popular activities in Thessaloniki are sightseeing and shopping. Sightseeing in Thessaloniki is easily done on foot, as most sights are located in a walking distance from each other, usually around Aristotle Square that is considered the most central spot of the city.
Shopping is also a popular activity in Thessaloniki. The shopping triangle in the city center is Egnatia str, Nikis str, and Venizelou str, where there are large shopping outlets next to family shops.
