cost few Euros to enter. Nice view of town, seafront and harbor from top. too many gypsies and African job-infiltrators around bugging you to buy nick-nacks and phony iphone or ipads...

Note seniors from EU countries get a discount. Audio guide OK. Organization could have been better - I would have preferred chronological - but we still learned a lot about the city. Normally we know more about our destination, but this was a last-minute trip so we were not as well prepared as normal. It suited us fine.

I thought it was just a walk to the top to see the view, and I had no idea that the Tower was filled with great historic information, and the free audio guide was greatly appreciated. Very nicely done - Galata Tower in Istanbul could learn from this!

You can't stay in Thessalonique without visit the White Tower. Nice place for pictures and enjoying a coffee near the sea..

When you say Thessaloniki you think about white Tower.. On the top you can see the hole city. It is really a superb view. There are many stairs but it worth it. The surroundings are marvelous and perhaps you can go for coffee on the boats which make a small tour in Thermaikos...

The white tower is the city's trademark. It is beautifully preserved and you can enter for 3 euros (free if you are studying in EU with your student card). Inside you can find all the history of the city from the ancient times until today. Once you reach the top the view is amazing.

As the best known attraction of the city, you almost have no choice visiting the tower. And yes, take the audio guide to help you get a better understanding of the city and its history, would have loves some more hands-on stuff and not only the pictures, but still: lots to learn here.

Simbol of the city of Thessaloniki. Part of the former Turkish fortification stands as a reminder of past times. A must see if you are in the city.

Easy to walk up tower with fabulous view from top. On entrance after paying fee they will give you free machine to listen to displays on the 6 floors all detailing different eras in Thessaloniki's history. On one floor the computers were putting off a high pitch sound, but we were able to ignore it. It was cool and dark,... More
