Sixt Tips

Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece sitting to the north of Athens. There are a number of archeological sites that go as far back as the late second and early third centuries. Important sites include what was the Galerius Maximianus Palace, the Truimphal Arch of Galerius and the Rotunda which is a 4th century building that was later converted into a church. Thessaloniki is also home to the Byzantine monuments which can be compared to an open-air museum. The city also has a number religious landmarks, such as the 7th century Holy Wisdom of God. Other interesting stops to make with your rental car in Thessaloniki include the 15th century White Tower, a major hallmark of the city, the mosques of the Hamza Bey Cami and to the Turkish bathhouses or Hamams.

Tigz V.

Brilliant service from the guys at Sixt rent a car. Including finding us a car a day early, because we made a mistake with our booking, and driving the vehicle in the torrential rain from the car park to a drier spot. Would definitely recommend. 5 stars.

Golan A.

The employees are really nice and helpful. They checked the vehicle themselves before the trip and marked all the scratches that were on the vehicle.

Great service.
