A wonderful week in Thessaloniki, Greece

I really had a great week in Thessaloniki, Greece… glad I had a chance to spend my vacation there. Now I’m back in Milan, Italy…home sweet home… I have to admit that I really enjoyed Greek food and Greek frappé, a very strong and rich iced coffee. It is a coolest city for shopping. There are various kinds of store for shoes, clothes, beauty products, etc., at every corner of the city.

.

“Tsimiski” street is one of my favorite places to walk around and see all kinds of shops. It’s such a lively place! Beside that “Egnatia” Street is another place where I found the cheaper price stores… still interesting and fun to checking things out.

Tsimiski - a shopping street --- tons of stores, perfect for shopping

Shoe Stores - hundreds of them around Thessaloniki!!!

Modiano Market - selling fresh food, meats and many fresh products

.

“Food” is one of my favorite things to mention — Greek food has variety of ingredients. I found vegetables and fruits are so fresh, very high quality. Greek salad became a must-order as a side dish for dinner… the freshness is just amazing!

Greek Salad - tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, feta cheese, etc.

Souvlaki - grilled meat (beef, chicken, pork, lamb, etc.)

Giaourtlou - Meat balls served with yogurt and pita bread

Greek dessert - varieties of sweets found at shops around the city

Our breakfast at Electra Palace - with a view of the ocean front

Greek Frappé - a rich, strong, iced coffee with foam-covered milk.

.

“Terkenlis” is a bakery shop which sells many kinds of desserts. It is a franchise brand, I found several Terkenlis stores around Thessaloniki. All of them are good! The one that is closest to us is near Aristotelous Square. We stopped by almost every day to refill our energy in the afternoon, love it!
