The tower is set on the foreshore and it has great views of the city and across the ocean. It is very busy in the early afternoon on a weekend and we found it less busy later in the afternoon

The history of the tower is very interesting. From the bottom to the top of the tower you have to climb 96 stairs. The panorama view is incredible. One of the best monuments in Thessaloniki!
