    Thessaloniki can feel a bit small, especially if you've come up from Athens, but it is actually a sprawling city that hugs the coast. To get a good set of shots of the city, both old and new, climb up in the direction of the Yeni Küle. This is not a trek for those not capable of a stairmaster, as the streets can sometimes be quite steep and there are sections of stairs. Follow Agias Sofias north from the seafront until it stops being Agias Sofias (this is about 10 minutes after you pass the church of the same name). Continue up to see the traditional Macedonian style houses and eventually the view of the city will clear beneath you.
