Join us in Thessaloniki for one of Europe’s fiercest derby!
The football rivalry between Olympiacos and PAOK is considered the fiercest inter-city rivalry in Greece.
In Greece, like is the case in many South American stadiums the club life takes place inside the walls of the stadium. Both Thessaloniki-based clubs have various sports programs, and the far majority of them are located inside the stadium.
Like most big rivalries, this is about more than just football but takes in elements of class and social structure – all of which you will learn about on this fascinating short break.
You’ll spend 4 days in Greece’s 2nd city – which despite having stood through the Byzantine, Ottoman, and Roman Empires still manages to be a stylish and modern city. You’ll have plenty of time to discover the city of Thessaloniki. Your local host will help you find the best things to see and do.
The highlight will of course be the rivalry between PAOK v Olympiacos at the incredible Toumba stadium. On the big day, your local host will take you into the world of PAOK before taking your seats in the stadium for the main event. You will experience the match like a local.
