Good food


Thessaloniki is famous for its good food. Here you can find many taverns or shops to get delicious street food.

Countless Coffee


Another reason to love student life in Thessaloniki is the fact that in every alley you walk you will find a cafe. The options are too many. You can go for a coffee on the beach overlooking Thermaikos or the Rotunda near the universities for a more relaxed coffee.
