Travelling to Thessaloniki by Car

Driving to Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki is well connected to all neighbouring countries, in the North (FYROM, Bulgaria), East (Turkey) and West (Albania), as well as to south Greece via excellent motorway links. You may use the following Google map to find out how to get to Thessaloniki by road from where you are.


There is a significant number of outdoor municipal parking areas (free of charge) where you can park your vehicle and then use means of public transport or walk to the city center. Visit the Thessaloniki’s Urban Mobility Center for accurate directions to those outdoor parking areas.

In addition, you can park to the designated street parking areas in the city center and use the street parking meters which charge by the hour in order to obtain a parking ticket where required. Another, but more expensive solution, is the plenty private garages that you can easily find anywhere around Thessaloniki’s center.
