Classroom in My Back Pocket course takes place in the beautiful city of Thessaloniki on the coast of the Aegean Sea. Besides the picturesque sea sights, some of the famous sights of Thessaloniki include the Roman Rotunda mausoleum that was converted into Saint George's Church, The White Tower: Relic of the Byzantine-Era Ramparts, Church of Saint Demetrius, Ano Poli, Byzantine Walls and much more. If you enjoy hiking and nature, make it a day with one day trip to Mount Olympus. Yet, on the top of it all, we warmly recommend a visit to the sacred Meteora Monasteries built over mesmerizing 300 meters high rock formations which were proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Once in Thessaloniki, besides the olives and ouzo as starters, some of the delicacies everyone should try include sesame bagel - koulouri Thessalonikis, the world famous spanakopita, souvlaki or pita gyro sandwich and for a dessert, a good choice is a piece of baklava, a chocolate covered tsoureki or a bougatsa - custard cream filled croissant pastry.
