Escape the everyday with a well-deserved weekend in Thessaloniki, Greece. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, our new DreamBreak travel option offers you a fresh way to experience your DreamTrips™ Membership, starting with a 2-night stay at a stylish hotel and an afternoon tour of local food markets — delicious samples included. With some expert help from a city insider, the rest is up to you! This DreamBreak does not include an In-destination Support team member so you can create your own adventures, your way.
Famous monuments and archaeological sites draw thousands of visitors to the gorgeous port city of Thessaloniki every year. As compelling as its history under Ottoman, Byzantine and Roman rule, the city’s temperate climate is equally alluring, allowing guests to walk its ancient streets year-round.
You can plan the best use of your free time with the help of a city insider during breakfast on Day 2. Get tips and tricks and learn more about your upcoming “Taste of Thessaloniki” tour — then head out to discover culinary masterpieces.
Kick-start your tour with strong, flavorful Greek coffee, then try a delicious bougatsa — phyllo-wrapped breakfast pastries filled with cheese, custard or minced meat. Leave room to sample other fares, including olives, cheese and koulouri — bread rings baked with sesame seeds on top — and the regional treats of a traditional meze platter. Refresh with an ouzo aperitif and purchase souvenirs in the open-air markets (at your own expense).
Your “Taste of Thessaloniki tour” ends in the city center, leaving you in the perfect spot to explore at your own pace. Don’t miss your chance to stroll through immense galleries at the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki, home to thousands of artifacts from the Hellenistic, Roman, Classical and Archaic periods. Or, you could venture to Aristotelous Square, the Port of Thessaloniki or the Citadel. With plenty of time to explore, the choice is up to you!
What we love:
• During free time, visit the famed White Tower of Thessaloniki and the Church of Agios Dimitrios, a sacred Byzantine church and crypt dedicated to St. Demetrius.
• Not tired yet? Thessaloniki is home to many cultural events, including the Thessaloniki Film Festival and the International Trade Fair, and offers plenty of sights, museums and restaurants to explore, along with a vibrant nightlife.
• The Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki features a wide variety of notable exhibits, including the statue of Harpocrates, the Head of Serapis, golden Medusa heads and the marble door from the Macedonian tomb of Agia Paraskevi.
Your DreamBreak includes 3 days and 2 nights in Thessaloniki, Greece, at LAZART Hotel. This modern hotel offers a relaxing retreat from the city’s hustle and bustle. Pamper yourself with a treatment at the Aegeo Spa (at your own expense), indulge your senses with a meal at Art Nouveau restaurant, or simply lie back and soak up the sun by the hotel pool.
Before you step off the property, be sure to get some insider tips from an on-site city expert (see Itinerary section for available times). You’ll get info on how to use public transportation, ideas on the best sights to see and more before you head out on your own.
When it’s time to explore a different side of Thessaloniki, you can join a walking tour on Day 2 where you’ll sample the best culinary delights that the city has to offer. Start in the city center with a cup of rich Greek coffee, then move through cobblestone streets to local sweet shops, restaurants and bakeries. During your “Taste of Thessaloniki” tour, try everything from pastries, cheeses and crisp aperitifs to the delicious savory bites of a meze platter — treats such as stuffed grape leaves, eggplant dip and more. You’ll also have plenty of time to shop and barter with local vendors at open-air markets to find your perfect souvenir.
Once the tour ends, treat yourself to more fun with a self-guided excursion, using the best ideas from the city expert, or just wander and discover your favorite local spots on your own.
No matter what you choose to do, there’s always time for a delicious meal with family and friends — buffet breakfasts are also included throughout your entire stay!

Pricing for children for this hotel may differ from (and be greater than) pricing for adults.
Please note: Beginning January 1, 2018, the Greek Ministry of Tourism will enforce an “Overnight Stay Tax,” a new charge that is applicable to tourists and which must be collected by the hotel upon check-in. This tax is dependent upon the star rating of the hotel and may vary between high and low seasons. This is a government implemented charge beyond the control of WorldVentures™ and Rovia™. Payment of this tax is the sole responsibility of the individual tourist; should the policy change, we will inform you and update this information.
Hotel Check-in Requirements
By booking this DreamTrip I understand that the hotel may request a credit card upon check-in. The hotel may request the credit card in order to: a) place a monetary hold of US$50-200; or b) hold for incidental, security or other charges. By booking, I acknowledge having received notice of this potential charge and accept that Rovia recommends a credit card rather than a debit or bank card be used in the event the hotel requests the card. I understand that any such request made by the hotel is outside of the control of WorldVentures and Rovia and is strictly a hotel policy. Should I have questions concerning the hotel’s policy, I accept responsibility for contacting the hotel independent of Rovia or WorldVentures.
