Edessa, Greece

Edessa, Greece Famous for its many waterfalls and greenery, Edessa is virtually unknown to tourists, which is a blessing and a shame. The town is one of the most beautiful in Greece full of little streams, bridges and parks. There are many small kataraktes (waterfalls) throughout the town and one big one which is the main attraction. The town sits on a ledge overlooking a vast agricultural plain that extends all the way to Thessaloniki. There are several good places to eat including the Omonia Restaurant, Pavlos Taverna, Taverna Roloi and the nameless restaurant diagonally opposite the bust station. There are 8 trains a day to Thessaloniki as well as hourly buses. The train ride along the shore of Lake Vegoritida is especially beautiful. Be sure to visit the Byzantine bridge of Kourpi.
