E' questo il mio ultimo post da Salonicco... direzione Áno Póli, la Città Alta. 
Si tratta della zona più vecchia della città, circondata ancora dalle antiche mura bizantine risalenti al IV secolo a.C.
Vicoli lastricati in pietra e antiche case tradizionali in perfetto stile greco-ottomano, ogni angolo racconta  la sua storia antica.
Incantevoli scorci offrono una vista panoramica sulla città e sul golfo Termaico. 
Qui, il tempo si è fermato.
Le mura del Kastrá (il Castello) vennero fatte erigere da Teodosio I (r. 379-475 d.C.) e progettate sul modello della vastissima cinta che lo stesso imperatore volle per Costantinopoli.
Ricostruite nel XIV secolo, furono rinforzate dai turchi nel 1821 con lastre di marmo provenienti dal cimitero ebraico.
Soltanto Áno Póli  sopravvisse in larga parte all'incendio del 1917: anche se le fiamme iniziarono a sprigionarsi proprio da qui, il vento le spinse verso il mare.
Oggi questo antico quartiere è diventato il rifugio dei tessalonicesi progressisti e alternativi, che contribuiscono al suo tranquillo fascino residenziale.
E poi ci sono gli invitanti profumi delle piccole taverne che con i tavolini disposti all’ombra delle viti offrono cucina tradizionale Macedone, che riflette la storia e l'identità culturale della zona.
Indosso un outfit casual-chic in B&W, con un paio di comodi stivaletti bianchi, candidi, immacolati, il super trend di questa primavera, must-have sulle passerelle e nello street style... per non passare inosservate!
Quassù, in questo labirinto incantato che premia l'esplorazione più profonda con momenti di rara bellezza e scoperta.
(Clicca qui e qui per vedere tutti gli abbinamenti più cool per indossare un paio di stivaletti bianchi).

On the north of Thessaloniki lies the Upper or the Old Town of Ano Poli, the most ancient part of the city that is approximately 2300 years old, the only part of the city that survived the big fire of 1917. The Upper Town will make you feel as if time stood still, you’ll immediately be stricken by its unique style, so different from that of the rest of Thessaloniki that will travel you back to the city’s Byzantine past.
A large part of the Byzantine Walls that surrounded Thessaloniki have been well preserved, adding to the beauty of the city’s Acropolis.

The city walls – which define Ano Poli’s upper edge – are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 
Take a stroll in the graphic stone paved little streets surrounded by small beautiful ottoman houses and enjoy the amazing panoramic view of the city and sea – catching the sunset is to be sought-after.
Do not miss out on the numerous little taverns with traditional cuisine of Minor Asia and Macedonia that reflect the area's history and cultural identity
Ano Poli, an enchanting mix of alleys, traditional houses, and impressive Byzantine and Ottoman-era monuments is Thessaloniki’s most cohesive and colorful neighborhood.
Up here, the past weaves, ever gracefully, in and out of the present and remains the same enchanting labyrinth that it has been for centuries. The charm of Ottoman vernacular architecture – the partially timbered houses with their cantilevered upper stories – is often beautifully preserved, painted in shades of ochre, terracotta and dusty blue. Those in ruins are just as picturesque – rich in both crumbling architectural detail and in contemporary street art adorning their walls.

I'm wearing a B&W casual-chic outfit, with a pair of comfortable white boots, the super trend of this spring, must-have on the catwalks and in the street style... not to go unnoticed!
Up here, in this enchanted labyrinth that rewards deeper exploration with moments of rare beauty and discovery.
