Visitors on a holiday to Thessaloniki can stroll through the parks along the Nea Paralia, or the waterfront, explore the long sandy beaches that stretch for 10 kilometres down the coast, or head to Seich Sou just outside of the city to hike or mountain bike on the clearly marked, scenic trails through the forest.
