I lived in Thessaloniki for almost three months and loved the city. I arrived with a bus from Bulgaria to the main bus terminal and walked for one hour to my accommodation. Usually, it is the best way to walk a lot in Thessaloniki to get around, because it is often quicker on the steep sites of the city, where cars and buses have to go on longer roads and furthermore it's beautiful. Also, buses are very cheap, but the system is a bit confusing. In the end, I got behind it, do not worry. Late in the evening, no busses are going anymore, but there is an alternative to Uber very common or you can use normal taxis, which are also not so expensive, so it is no problem to go out at night. During my stay, I explored the surrounding a bit and did a weekend trip to Athens, which was great. All in all, I really enjoyed my time in Greece and met wonderful people.
