== Free food ==
Thessaloniki is perhaps the only place in the world where you can eat everyday for free easily. Next to the campus of Aristotles university, Egnatia street, after the crossroad with 3rd September street there is the university canteen. Ask anybody for ''fititiki leschi''/φοιτητική λέσχη. There you can find a free full meal twice a day. 12.00-15.00 and 18.00-20.00. These free meals are provided for the university students, but even if you're not one, you don't have to pay and you don't have to show a student ID or any document. Just follow the queue, take the food and eat it. There's never any checks. There's nothing to be afraid of, just try to look more or less like a student. Only disadvantage is that it is closed on weekends, summer holidays and not-working days for the university in general.

This might not be true any more, have heard that this year they started checking for a student pass.
* '''My friends were there (1st week of September 2012) and they were asked about student cards, so they replied that "we are from Erasmus and still waiting for Greek ones, but of course we have our normal"... OK! OK! com'on, there is no problem, so you only have to say "I am a student" if any doubtful problem occur'''
