The seaside offers the most appealing aspect of the modern city. Whether in the morning, with the jaw-dropping vista of Mount Olympus, in the evening with the breathtaking sunset, or even in the unique hazy atmosphere of a foggy day, it is an absolutely rewarding itinerary. Our itinerary will last for about one hour and cover a distance from the city port to the imposing Concert Hall and Opera buildings. We will run along the seaside, with the Aegean Sea hugging the city on the one side and the parks, fountains, squares and monuments on the other. We will come in touch with city dwellers that choose the enchanting seaside to jog, walk, get together and have fun.

The fortification structure of the city started as early as its establishment in 315 BC. The walls we see today are remnants of the Roman and the later Byzantine period and they form a monument of precious historical heritage and a vital part of the city civilization. They are one of the few samples of wall fortification maintained in this amazing condition in a modern city. We will run along the walls and around the old city for an itinerary of about 7km long. In various spots we will have the opportunity to admire the imposing walls and the breathtaking panoramic views of the whole city. We will go past various monuments dating back to the Hellenistic or Byzantine era, witnessing the passage of different civilizations throughout history, to end up on the seaside again, where we initially started. It is an itinerary rich in sights of great historical interest, as well as locations with ravishing vistas of the modern city.

Run with me Thessaloniki - The Old Town

The Old Town, also known as the ‘Balcony Of Thessaloniki’, forms a captivating history and tradition mosaic. A striking combination of stone and green, inhabited mainly by Turks during the Turkish occupation and by refugees arriving from Asia Minor in the 1920’s, it has maintained to a great extent the colors and the traditional Balkan character of the old area. Some of its corners are deemed ‘neo-traditional’, some stand out for their picturesque houses with the modest ‘rustic style’, while some others give out the charm and unique appeal of the byzantine glory. Running through the Old Town, along narrow streets in the labyrinth of traditional paths, we will get to know a city emerging from the past. In our itinerary we will run past a range of unique monuments of UNESCO world heritage and will make stops at various points with exciting views that will give us the chance to take a break from the uphill and winding route. The Old City itinerary is of enchanting beauty all day long!
