If you are going to visit Thessaloniki and you are thinking about your transportation options then sit back and enjoy the reading. We are going to give you some insider tips and advices that will make your life easier if you are planning to use a taxi in this wonderful corner of Greece that is called Thessaloniki.
You are about to visit the city for a short holiday, a romantic trip or maybe a business meeting, the first thing you have to do is to get from the airport to your hotel. First thing you need to know is that the official taxis in Thessaloniki are painted blue and white (each city in Greece has itís own colors). Usually at the airport there is a waiting line of taxis located at the exit of the arrivals terminal, just grab one and you are ready to go. The only thing you need to have in mind is that according to a new law the fare from the airport to anywhere in the city has a fixed price, which at the time we are writing this article is 25 Ä during the day no matter how many people or luggage there might be.
When you need to get a taxi inside the center of Thessaloniki city the only thing you have to do is to go on the sidewalk and just make a signal to one on the street or just head to a taxi waiting place. Some of the most common taxi places are Aristotelous square, Agias Sofias street or Mitropoleos street. All of them are located in the center of the city and pretty close to each other so you are not going to miss them. Usually during rush hours it is a bit tricky to find a taxi but in normal occasions you are not going to face any problems finding one.
If you do not want to wait on the street or prefer to have a taxi waiting for you then you can call a Radio Taxi (yes I know it sounds a lite strange but this is how taxis that can be ordered by phone are called in Greece). The taxi will be there on time and you will get to your destination easily.
