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.

      Our Greece tour was superb. We had a fantastic time in all three cities Athens, Mykonos and Santorini. Thanks to Mayuri for the timely response and helping us in coordinating the tour. She was available to help us even at odd times. The one problem we faced was with the hotel manager behaviour which was rude in mykonos and the facilities given by them was not upto 4 star. We had to wait for 4 hours to get the room. Otherwise the view from hotel was awesome. We had a wonderful stay in Athens and Santorini. Both were located at the prime location i.e accessible to local restaurants, bus stops and metro. Thanks to Duniya Safari and travel triangle for making this a memorable trip for us.

      I’ll start by summing it up: Everything of our trip to Greece was exceptional and beyond our expectations. Memorable Vacations (my travel agent) and Travel Triangle have made it extra memorable and special for us. Nisar and Krishna Sir from Memorable Vacations and Shilpa from TT, were extremely courteous and have taken extra care of all our requests and customisations. Nisar customised everything according to our wishes. He has taken care of everything from hotels to transfers to internal tours, etc. all while keeping our budget in mind. The hotels at all the places (Athens, Mykonos and Santorini) were very very good. The ones at Mykonos and Santorini were superlative in their location and view. The siteseeings and islands visits were all breathtaking with extremly eye catching views. Of course Greece is one of the most beautiful country of Europe so it tends to be little expensive. But if one can plan this trip 4-5 months in advance, then it can be booked at quite reasonable price. Food wise, Greece is a paradise for Non-Veg lovers. Greek Salad, Cakes & Bakes and Greek Yogurts are out of the world. Overall this trip was totally satisfying for us in all sense. In the entire trip we have not faced with any unpleasant experience. I’ll like to recommend Memorable Vactions (particularly Nisar

      We booked our holiday package for Greece for earlier this month. Mr. Rohit Thakur was the one we coordinated with before trip, he helped us understand all the minorities of Greece as a destination which helped us a great deal to customise our trip based on our preferences. & it was Yeeshu Dhiman who assisted us through out the entire trip. Even answering our calls at awkward hours to get us out of a jam whenever required. The entire experience as a whole was so pleasant that I can't wait to get my next trip sorted through Hub Holiday. & I would love to recommend these two and Hub Holiday for any of my or my friends' or families' holiday plans.

      We just returned from our trip and had an amazing time, would like to thank you Shubham for the same. The hotels you booked were superb. They all were in the best possible location both in terms of ease of transport and the view. Also, your activeness to get us the boarding pass on return flight is much appreciated. Would also like to say that we took a semi private sail boat ride in Santorini and would highly recommend it to your customers.the company name is angel sailing and it was the best time we had. Just a small suggestion though, if possible avoid booking flights on Egypt Air . We had a not so pleasant experience in all our 4 connecting flights through them . But again ,thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

      The concept of travel triangle is pretty innovative and best for customers like us who prefer to follow fully customized itinerary than a pre-defined one. The team is great and routed us to the most suitable travel agents. We planned our holiday with hubholiday team and they provided good service. There was a couple of things which could be better from hubholiday team but the overall experience was nice.
