About Ano Poli in Thessaloniki

The upper town of Thessaloniki, with all its vivid and colourful glory, phases in and out of the 4th-century Byzantine era to the 15th-century touch of the Ottomans, with a fair amount of glimpse of a modern city.

Traditionally called Ano Poli, this neighbourhood in the northern side of Thessaloniki was the favourite of the elites throughout the history of the city. As a result, the urban fabric is weaved with numerous Roman and Ottoman architecture, peeking out from between contemporary houses and cafes. The stone-paved streets and the high city walls along the old acropolis make it really hard to believe which century you are standing in.

Ano Poli in Thessaloniki is not the main city centre; it is way up north and has beautifully preserved medieval times like a scent in a bottle. The eclectic mix of East-European and Turkish culture that is spread across the whole country of Greece can be felt way more evidently in Ano Poli – where time has almost not passed since those days.

The cityscape is painted with houses, shops, mosques and churches of the past and present. Every colour in the palette can be seen on the buildings that line the cobbled streets. The Great Fire of 1917 had wiped out large portions of this part of the town, mainly the Jewish Quarter. But nothing could crush the spirit that Ano Poli has – not the fire, not the several sieges that happened over the years, and certainly not the rise and fall of great empires like the Byzantine and Ottoman and others.

To know what to do in Ano Poli of Thessaloniki, one must know the town first. Taking a walk along the cobblestone paths, enjoying a fresh meal and drink at the open cafes – these are the activities that truly reveal what Ano Poli is.

Other than that, one must certainly visit the House of Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Republic of modern Turkey. The house here where he was born during the Ottoman rule is now partially the office of Thessaloniki Municipality. The other part is a museum for the public to see his home and other personal belongings on display.

The tower of Thessaloniki is another must-visit point, or Yedi Kule or Heptapyrgion – depending on which empire you are talking about. A fortress for the garrison to both Byzantine and Ottoman armies and then later, this fortress is now a spectacular structure with great historical importance for the visitors to see. On clear days, Mount Olympus can be seen from Ano Poli as well.

      I would like to thank you Shubham for your assistance in arranging the wonderful trip to Greece. All the hotels were wonderful especially the one at Santorini. We really had a great time staying there. The trip itinerary was also very well planned by shubham , so we had leisure time to explore on our own besides the pre-booked tours. Lastly Shubham your assistance is highly appreciable. You being available every time and responding to our queries very fast is truly a warming experience. Looking forward to more trips with your assistance. Thank you Moushumi and Bishwadeb

      Had the best trip so far. Travel Triangle in alliance with Pick Your Trail are through professionals and have made my trip extremely pleasing and a memorable one. There were instances where I could sense of a glitch, but the back-up telegram team were extremely responsive irrespective of the time difference and made sure everything was spot on as per plan. I did have plan B and plan C based on my previous tour makers experience, but then nothing came near to execution as everything went very well. I never expected, anyone be so prompt and responsive just on a phone app which made my trip extremely easy. Thanks to Apurva from Travel Triangle and Harish, Athul & Sashikant from Pick Your Trail. Kudos to you all.

      This is the first time we booked our trip with an agent, and we really feel it was a good choice. The trip was outstanding, more so because it was well-planned and we didn't have to spend a lot of time worrying over where to go and what to see (planning AND executing is a nightmare!). And this is where we felt you have really made a difference - all through the trip, we had a myriad doubts which were promptly answered and we were also properly guided through the entire trip. We also faced a few hitches because of our luggage which was resolved thanks to your team - it could have easily derailed our trip morale if it wasn't for your support. It was really nice having you watch our backs on these queries and issues. We'd like to personally thank Devaansh and Anupeksha for their wonderful support before and throughout the trip. You guys rock! We hope to book our next trip with you guys again soon. Warm Regards, Akshaya and Dhinesh

      I am Mahesh & we booked a travel package from Travel triangle (Hub Holidays) & we got a decent package plan to visit Greece for my honeymoon from Shubham . Few unnecessary trips were added in itinerary that resulted in time waste, tiredness but yes memorable. The package was customized as per our budget needs and over that we got good guidance from Mr.Shubham.He is one person who talks with zero attitude and so sweet & wins customer trust/faith. Keep it up Shubham.

      Really enjoyed the trip. Few things could have been better. For example, our cab pick up from the hotel to the airport did not arrive and we had to rush and catch a cab with a hefty amount. However, thanks to travel triangle and Pratik's prompt management we got the refund! The hotels in Amsterdam and brussels were excellent. Hotel in Paris could have been better. Also, we couldn't locate our guide for the Eiffel tour. It would have saved us a lot of money and headache if were informed about daily bus and train tickets that are usually available for intra city travel. Overall, really good service. Loved the Amsterdam canal cruise and the day tour to Bruges. The Lido show is a must if you are visiting Paris.
