A city with a stormy history and a cosmopolitan heart, Thessaloniki attracts visitors with its diverse culinary scene, dynamic nightlife, and youthful energy.
Kids will appreciate attractions like White Tower of Thessaloniki and Museum of Byzantine Culture. Go for a jaunt from Thessaloniki to Vergina to see Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aigai (Vergina) about 1 hour away. There's much more to do: make a trip to Aristotelous Square, get curious at Noesis - Science Center and Technology Museum, take a stroll through Ladadika District, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.

To see ratings, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Thessaloniki road trip planning app.

Sacramento, USA to Thessaloniki is an approximately 20.5-hour combination of car and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 10 hours traveling from Sacramento to Thessaloniki. While traveling from Sacramento, expect slightly colder days and about the same nights in Thessaloniki, ranging from highs of °F to lows of °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) to allow time to drive to Kalambaka.
