Having just read the unfair review previously felt obliged to inform you differently! Although everything is indeed in Greek, you are able to have an English audio tape that you carry with you following the numbered circles on each picture/ area you visit. Very worthwhile visit with stunning views across Thessaloniki. Warm inside so don't over dress!

Nice view, no English explanations. The exhibition inside is irrelevant, all is written in Greek. The view on the roof is nice.

Towering over the sea, at the bay, the White Tower stands as left by the Otomans in the time of the occupation. The samples displayed within the tower relate the history of it since it's constuction.

Yup, that's a tower alrighty. It is a bit big but not too much. It helps you to know where you are and that you're not in Italy because it's not leaning.

The White Tower in Thessaloniki, Greece is one of the interest points for visiting on a summer holiday here. It is located in the old harbor of Thessaloniki, near the sea, with a breathtaking perspective once you get to the top. Besides the wonderful architecture and view, the White Tower hosts the town museum inside, each level being cleverly designed... More
