Nobody knows the SWISS destinations better than our staff. A restaurant that is not listed in every travel guide, an original bar, a charming café, or great tours with spectacular lookout points. Let our travel professionals inspire you with their tips.

From the old Byzantine city walls and more specifically the Trigonios Tower, you can enjoy a spectacular view across the city and towards the sea. Anyone completing the route to the tower on foot has already done some sport and got to know the old part of the city. Alternatively, you can take a bus up to the wall.

The small village of Vergina, once the capital of the Kingdom of Macedonia, is just one hour's drive away from Thessaloniki. In the centre of the village is the archaeological site of Aigai, with very well preserved Macedonian burial chambers. One of those buried there is Philipp, the father of Alexander the Great. I recommend going there by car. However, various bus companies also run trips to Vergina.
