Thessaloniki stands in the 43th place, five places bellow Brisbane and is presented as a destination which is famous for its Byzantine mosaics, clubs, bars and cafes. Danial Adkison suggests that visitors should order an ouzo and enjoy it admiring Olympus mountain as it appears in the south.

“The White Tower is for Thessaloniki, what the Acropolis is for Athens”, suggests the article.
