- Setting Description:
- Thessaloniki is an urban-style college town. Facing the Thermaic Gulf, with a beautiful waterfront promenade, the city sprawls upwards along broad, tree-lined streets and through parks and squares to the medieval citadel. While the “feel" of Thessaloniki is distinctly modern, pockets of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman past abound.
