it's a miracle and a well kept secret among tourists, i.e. all tourists know about it, but the locals do not:)
So, if you have a little wish... or a big one, you should touch the toe of Aristotelis thinking of it. And everything will come true!!!
Personally I don't remember my wishes, but I remember I had a lot of them... that's why the toe of Aristotelis even shines in the darkness!
Thessaloniki is the name of the sister of Alexander the Great...our city was founded in 315BC by Kassandros her husband...king of Macedonia (the Greek territory in north greece and south of the former yougoslav republic of Macedonia...please don't misinterpret this tip)...The picture is the statue of Alexander at the quayside of Thessaloniki!
