Thessaloniki for 6 days - what to do and what book to look in!

Good day y'all! I will be in Thessaloniki for 6 days, volunteering with a refugee camp (this is a stopover in the middle of a Serbia to Naples trip to see friends). I will have my mornings mostly free, so am looking for ideas on what to do. I cannot find where Thessaloniki is covered in any of Rick's books, and I've never done Europe without him!

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

Jennifer

Rick does not cover Thessaloniki in his books. If you do a search, you'll find some old threads about it. To search on a desktop computer, look for the magnifying glass to the right of the dark blue "Rick Steves Europe" near the top of the page. To search on a tablet or phone, click on the horizontal lines at the top left; search is on top, over "About Rick."

Here's what I got when I put "Thessaloniki" into the search window and restricted results to Forums: https://search.ricksteves.com/?button=&filter=Travel+Forum&query=thessaloniki&utf8=%E2%9C%93

Here's one of the more recent threads (well, less ancient anyway - it's from 2015) with some tips that may be useful for you: https://community.ricksteves.com/travel-forum/greece/thessaloniki-where-to-stay-and-what-to-do

Laura, one of Rick's staff, has been to Thessaloniki. If she doesn't respond to this thread, send her a private message using the link at the bottom of this page: https://community.ricksteves.com/users/86530

Lonely Planet would be a good start, I also like Let's Go guides for Greece.

Thanks everyone! It's a wonderful group of information to start with! I'm disappointed to not have a section of Rick's book broken out for the 'must-see's' and the 'budget hotel options' but I will make do :)
