Forget the summer. The best time to visit Thessaloniki is the cold months, when the Aegean weather is mild and the air is fresh and salty from the sea. A short drive from Sofia, Greece's second city will give you everything you might be missing in Bulgaria at this time of the year: sunshine, fresh fish, and an exciting shopping experience both in the department stores and the open-air market.

The city spreads along the coast of Thermaikos Bay and curls around the feet of the nearby hills, and the best bits to explore are squeezed along the promenade.
