I am planning to visit Thessaloniki, after I pick a friend from Athens El.Venizelos airport and eat a delicious meal in Varoulko. Thessaloniki is easily the best city of Greece regarding the plethora of options instantly accessed. I would like to visit the White Tower,to take a walk in the road by the sea and go to the castle. I am going to stay in Hotel El Greco whose website I found very interesting (http://www.hotelelgreco.gr). Keep coming after my trip for views upon my stay in Thessaloniki!

Seafood legend Lefteris Lazarou won the Michelin race, gaining the country's first star for Greek food—and rightly so, say the hordes clamoring for tables at this wood-floored, white-walled dining room (belonging to Hotel Eridanus) or a prized one on the terrace overlooking the Acropolis. Lazarou rises before dawn to source his psari (baked seafood dishes) and treats them in ways that veer into classical French territory without ever leaving Greece. Typical are cuttlefish risotto with caramelized garlic and bay leaf, and grouper with wild greens braised in egg-lemon sauce. Meat dishes are fewer, but just as amazing, such as his take on patsa, the workingman's tripe soup, served in a martini glass.
