Athens isn't the only town to boast an Acropolis. Thessaloniki has one too!
The Acropolis of Athens, of course, is famous the world over and it's principle building, the Parthenon, is instantly recognizable. But it is well worth the trip to seek out other acropolis, especially the one in Thessaloniki. Here's what makes it such a special spot.
Byzantine era ruins like this are unbelievably rare and the views of the city are equally amazing. The Acropolis of Thessaloniki is a lot like the city itself. Beautiful and gritty and under-appreciated, Thessaloniki doesn't make it on many travellers' itineraries but it is well worth a visit. Even if you have a limited amount of time, a visit to the acropolis should be high on your list.
