We enjoyed the visit reasonably priced 3 Euro's and nice view at the top. Visit was quite quick because information in the museum was not available in other languages so could not find out things. (Maybe they had headphones but nothing was offered). Still nice place to visit.

Nothing that impressive that I could find around the White tower. Photo shoot place, but beside the closeness of the sea and a couple of palm trees, I think the place is a little bit overrated.

The tower itself isn't exactly breathtaking by its architecture but the set up is very good if you want to learn about the history of Thessaloniki and the region. It is really worth taking the audio guide as all the text is in Greek!

Feel the history, look the city from the top, have a fantastic memory and pictures from it. There is a lot of cafe's and restaurants around, pirate ship, kids park with long track train etc. Do not miss Thessaloniki, this monument and surroundings. I like to come back again and again.

Nice view but the museum wasn't great. Just images on small screens and the audio guides weren't even synchronized. Pretty boring.

The White Tower, once part of the medieval fortifications of the city, has been transformed into a very interesting city museum. Its attractive exhibitions acquaint you with the city's history and character in a fast, lively and effective way. Major events in the city's long history, the highlights of its political, economic and cultural life, all that shaped Thessaloniki as... More

The only thing I like about this tower is the outside architecture. Also there good information inside the tower and nice view of the city on the top of the tower. The entrance ticket is cheap with free audio structure. It is fine to see the tower from inside but not much to see.

Very Impressive , even from a far the White Tower on the bay of Thessaloniki is a joy for sight seeing lovers , at Sun Born ! to Sun Down ! with different aspects all the time . The inside staircase is spiral and very medieval , typical Italian Castro giving way it's true origin of Chivalry ! I didn't... More
