There is, of course, the 7th century church of Agia Sofia to be visited, but also the subterranean chapel of St John the Baptist. Other interesting byzantine-era churches can be visited all along Egnatia street. There is some lovely architecture to be observed all around, so keep looking up.
The paved areas around Agías Sofías, Iktínou and Zéfxidos streets combine both leisure and shopping. Although this is mainly a daytime-activity zone, Iktinou and Zefxidos streets become night-time hotspots with cafes, bars and restaurants.
We must also mention Tsimiskí street which runs across all quarters and is the beginning of the high-end shopping strip ending at the seafront.
