Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
The number of visitors making a trip to Greece is steadily climbing with each passing year, and it’s for good reason. After all, what’s not to like?
It’s a country populated by olive skinned beauties; it’s a place where the eyes of wanderers are mesmerised by magical land and seascapes; it’s the pulsating heartbeat of Mediterranean cuisine that is, arguably, one of the healthiest on the planet, and it’s where centuries of history and mythological tales are etched in sand and stone.
Yes, Greece is a must visit destination for everyone and anyone who wishes to explore its past, present, as well as its exciting future prospects. To the neophyte explorer, Greece may conjure up images of Rhodes, Athens, and Zakynthos, but look north and you’ll find a commonly overlooked city – a (not so) little gem named Thessaloniki.
In 315 BC, Cassander, the King of Macedonia, founded Thessaloniki. Today, it’s a bustling port city that lies on the Thermaic Gulf of the Aegean Sea. It’s Greece's second major industrial, economic, commercial and political centre, and is famous for its events, festivals and lively cultural way of life in general.
Thessaloniki International Airport is the second largest airport in this Mediterranean nation; it’s a close second to Athens, serving millions of passengers each year since its establishment in the 1930’s. Thessaloniki City is a 14-kilometre trek south of the airport and getting to the city or to the nearby Kassandra Peninsula is made a whole lot easier and quicker with RentABus.com airport transfers.
Whether you're on a solo sightseeing expedition, or going to northern Greece with a gang of party lovers, we’ll ensure you and yours get to that gorgeous Grecian destination swiftly and safely. Getting around has never been easier with RentABus.com so let us take the stress out of your transportation needs in Thessaloniki.
Wandering around the cobbled hills of Ano Poli (Old Town), you’ll see that remnants of history are still standing strong. Catapult yourself right back to the Byzantine Era and be captured by breath-taking, unique structures dotted around this area, which is located at the north end of the city.
Ottoman-esque buildings, historical monuments, and a number of stunning churches make it one of the most fascinating cities in south-eastern Europe. On one of the many Old Town hills stands Heptapyrgion or Yedi Kule, the city’s castle, which offers amazing panoramic of Thessaloniki Port and the blue Aegean Sea. Here, an ancient acropolis once stood, and now this castle takes its space.
For foodies, there really is no better place to sample traditional Greek cuisine than in Ano Poli. Many of the restaurants are family run, giving them an unbeatable homely vibe that will tantalise your taste buds and warm your heart.
The Greeks are kings and queens of grilling, and a trip here is not complete without sampling souvlaki, feta, fresh fish (the calamari is always incredible), creamy and dreamy moussaka, made fresh by the local chefs in traditional tavernas and roadside eateries.
Getting around the city on foot is quite feasible, but if you really want to check out what this area has to offer, then let the team from RentABus.com take you on an adventure just south-east of Thessaloniki to the Kasandra Peninsula, Chalkidiki.
If you’re a fan of coastal views that were crafted by the Greek Gods themselves, take a tour of this magical region with us. A day or two exploring bijou villages, white beaches, enchanting seascapes, and local fare will make your Grecian trip just that little bit more memorable.
