Getting off the beaten path is always a fantastic way to experience the local culture. So, how about doing it from behind a steering wheel? Organize a rental vehicle via Travelocity and get set to crank up the music in Thessaloniki.
Escape Macedonia Airport as soon as you land by renting a car from a nearby vendor. Look into Europcar and Budget.

So many things to do and so little time. If you're keen to experience what the city has to offer, add the Archaeological Museum and White Tower of Thessaloniki to your travel program. If you get the chance, try to stop by the Arch of Galerius and Saint Demetrios Church too.
