Taxi and transfer from Thessaloniki Airport Makedonia (SKG) to Thessaloniki City
People often regard Thessaloniki as the northern and cultural capital of Greece due to a great number of colorful festivals and an abundance of attractions. Upon enormity of its history, ancient Solun, the way the city was called in Old Church Slavonic, is on a par with Athens and Nafplion.
The second-largest city in Greece has its individual airport, “Makedonia.” Let us discover an advantageous route to get from Thessaloniki Airport to city center.
There are 22 kilometers from Thessaloniki city center to airport. The route takes about half an hour by light vehicle.
Based on the route, a traveler can have a look at many beautiful cities and settlements of the Halkidiki peninsula, for example, Lygaria, Agia Triada, Pournari, Pilea, and Triandrias.
If you decide to travel from Thessaloniki Airport to city center via the Α24 route, you will get an opportunity to visit the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki and the White Tower, a former Turkish fortress, symbolizing the liberation of Greek Makedonia from the Ottoman rule. An excursion here is worth taking during a holiday in Thessaloniki.
