Tour Description

A tour through the heart of the city that once housed Europe's largest Sephardic Jewish community! All there is to see in the city known as "Madre de Israel" for nearly 500 years, Salonica remains irresistibly lovely even today.

After a brief introduction to the city's Jewish history, join us for a tour through the center of Thessaloniki, where Jewish life flourished from the 15th century until World War II. We will tour the most notable buildings, including the community's two synagogues, commercial streets, buildings of architectural interest and Jewish history, important bank buildings, the Turkish bath, the central fruit market, and much more. All of this combined to establish the city's administrative, commercial, and financial hub, which was primarily run by the city's once-powerful Jewish community.

The highlight of the excursion will be the Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki, where guests will learn about the city's great Jewish history. We will also go to the Shoah/Holocaust memorial in Liberty square, which was the site of the first significant prosecution of Nazis. Our tourists get the opportunity to explore and enjoy the most attractive section of the city of Thessaloniki, the always-charming "madre de Israel," while wandering through the streets of the center.
