Thessaloniki Car Hire

Discover Car Rental in Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki is Greece’s second largest city - a wonderful mix of the old and new. It was destroyed by a massive fire in 1917 and rebuilt some years later, retaining the magnificent ancient structures such as the Arch of Galerius and the beautiful old wooden houses in the Upper Town.

You’ll love the seaside location of Thessaloniki with the main squares of the city, Platia Elefterias and Platia Aristotelous, both on the waterfront and buzzing with shops and restaurants. Be sure to save enough time to try the cafes, restaurants, bars and ouzeries of Thessaloniki where you will really feel the essence of life in one of the most interesting and fascinating places in Europe. A hire car in Thessaloniki with DriveAway provides complete freedom and flexibility to drive throughout this incredible city, and also allows you the independence to explore off the beaten track.

Stroll down the promenade of Nikis Avenue, and take in the shops and restaurants that line the waterfront. Or visit the nearby old market near Aristotelous Square. Thessaloniki's Archaeology Museum houses a huge collection of treasures, and is not to be missed.

There is plenty to see outside the capital of Thessaloniki, and you can do just that with your car hire from DriveAway!
