Thessaloniki Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

The second-largest city in Greece, Thessaloniki is a fascinating historical destination. Inhabited for over 3,000 years, it has seen the rise and fall of many classical civilizations that have left behind rich architecture and numerous artifacts. In addition to that, it is also a proud maritime city and is surrounded by plenty of coastline, mountains, and wilderness. These are three of the most interesting attractions in and around Thessaloniki:

  • Arch of Galerius and Rotunda. Dating back to the 3rd and 4th centuries, the Rotunda was built by the Roman Emperor Galerius. Initially a pagan site, the impressive structure was later turned into a church, then a mosque, then a church again, always remaining one of the symbols of the city. 
  • Museums. Befitting a city of its size and stature, Thessaloniki is home to many fun, high-quality museums. There are many museums primarily concerned with the city’s past such as the Archaeological Museum, Byzantine Museum, Folklore and Ethnological Museum of Macedonia and Thrace, and Museum of Ancient Greek and Byzantine Musical Instruments. Others are more niche, but just as interesting — these include two museums of contemporary art, the Museum of Photography, Museum of Science, and the Museum of Cinematography. Every visitor can find something for themselves.
  • Kerkini Lake National Park. Located near the borders of Bulgaria and North Macedonia, Lake Kerkini is a protected wetland area and an important refuge for flora and fauna. The lake is a great bird watching area as its inhabitants include flamingos, pelicans, hawks, falcons, and hundreds of other species; there is also a herd of water buffalos. Visitors can explore the park in a canoe, on horseback, or by following one of its hiking trails. Lake Kerkini is a 90-minute drive north of Thessaloniki and can thus be visited on a day-trip, but there are also many guesthouses around the national park. Other scenic areas near Thessaloniki include Axios-Loudias National Park, Mount Olympus, and plenty of beaches.

Parking in Thessaloniki is problematic. A guarded car park in the city costs 7 - 10 € /day. From the Carwiz office it is easy to reach the highway to the Southwest. The toll roads are not expensive.
