There’ll be a handful of to-dos on your list in and around this delightful village. But with the bubbly nearby city of Thessaloniki just an hour away by car, Gerakina is a great base for journeys further afield. Thessaloniki’s old walls are really astounding features that lock in fresher, ultra-contemporary elements.
