Thessaloniki

We are flying inti Thessaloniki, with kids for a very short 3 day Greek holiday. Aiming to stay 1 or 2 nghts in Kassandra, Haldkidiki and driving to Meteora.

But I would have liked seeing some historical buildings and wondered if someone could give suggestions on our itinerary pls, I would have preferred Athens but couldnt afford flight tickets!

G-T you already have bumped up this thread by your own response. Doh!

Halkidiki is east of the city, Meteora to the west so it is going to involve shuttling around in a hire car to fit everything into 3 days. Is it 3 days/4 nights or just 3 nights? Makes a difference. And you will not need a car to explore the city, where you will find historic buildings.

I agree, actual timings would help as this is not easy in a short time.

Halkidiki is probably the bit to miss out if Meteora is a must & Thessaloniki will certainly fulfill the history part.

If halkidiki was being included for beach time then I would drive south of Thessaloniki & stay a night on the coast west of Meteora, then go to Meteora via Larissa & Trikala, or vice versa.

If you have time (this is where exact timings/days of arrival & departure matter) you could ten get back to Thessaloniki for a brief time.

Thanks both for your response, we have only 3 days at our disposal, infact flying back late on the 3rd day. Kids prefer sandy beaches, I would like some historical places though. I know being too ambitious here
