Renovated by EU (some 12 million Eur) still you have to pay 3 Eur admission fee. For my biggest disappointment everything is written in Greek, nothing in English, French, German etc. Therefore you can not get any information about the exhibitions (history, everyday life, trade etc.) located on every floor. Outlook is nice from the top.

Once you are in Thessaloniki you must definitely go and visit the White Tower. Go inside and climb up to the top for a wonderful view of the city.

Going to the top of the White Tower is worth the entrance fee. I believe it was about 3 euros. From the top you have a nice view over the city and the coastline.

I was very impressed by what seems to be a new revamp of the White Tower... 3 euro (free for students and the unemployed) will gain you entry to the White Tower where you can learn everything there is to know about the Tower on your climb to the top... each level has various cultural and historical displays relating to...

The view in a shining day is amazing. Inside they are photos of the old Thessaloniki and the people. You have to visit it.

The tower is for sure a Landmark of the city. It is in the middle ot a very nice walk along the sea. There is not much to visit (it is a museum though). Just part of the postcard.
