VISIT THESSALONIKI

WHY VISIT SKG (Thessaloniki) in 2 WHEELS

By visiting Thessaloniki on two wheels, you have the advantage of being able to move around freely. In practically no time, you’ll be switching from one interesting place to another, leaving you more time to get to know the real Thessaloniki and how the locals live.
Once you’re in the saddle, finding the best coffee and “pita gyros” sanwiches becomes a pleasure, and making your way to great places of interest that the tourists never find out about is just so easy.

WHEN SHOULD I VISIT SKG

Thessaloniki is the ideal city for exploring on two wheels the weather is great and temperature perfect for most of the year.

Winter
Winters in Thessaloniki are mediterranean, even if during the coldest months of January and February the temperatures can be moderate low. Rainy days are the exception rather than the rule, and the winter sunshine makes walking and riding around the streets and monuments always enjoyable. And, of course, authentic Greek frape cold coffee is always a must, thanks to the multitude of cafes in every part of the city.

Spring
Spring starts early and acts as a bridge between the relatively short winter and the long, hot summer. With spring comes a riot of colour and a very pleasant climate, and is the best time of the year in which to visit Thessaloniki on two wheels.

Summer
Summer is hot (with temperatures often hitting over 30°C), but the heat is not overly close – there is nothing better than riding around the city on two wheels, stopping off in the water front of the city to devour the best coffee you’ve ever tasted.

Autumm
Happily, Autumn is often a continuation of the Summer. Like Spring, it offers a very mild climate, with plenty of sunshine and minimal rainduring the whole season.

WHAT ABOUT SAFETY?

Our riders have many years of riding experience. The Scooter tour has a maximum speed of 30km (20 miles) per hour so that you can make the most of every moment; we prefer the alleyways to the major roads – the authentic hidden gems as opposed to the tourist hotspots – and in the saddle of a Scooter everything is within reach.
