We spent half the day touring popular landmarks in Thessaloniki and we started at the White Tower. It's a monument and museum on the waterfront. It sits as the symbol of the city. I heard that the views from the top were pretty. I saved my walking to the top for some of the other excursions. Here we enjoyed the... More

Time wasted. Everything is in Greek, strange exhibitions, horrible ventilation. The only good thing was the view from the top. Yes, there is an audio guide, I assume in other languages

It is considered to be symbol of the city and that alone is enough to make someone visit the White Tower. However, apart from that, the visitor has the opportunity to read about the history of the city while walking to the top of the building which enhances the experience and transforms it from great to amazing! The entrance is... More

Situated along the cost, offers nice views from the top. Worth to see the exhibition walking up to the top. Explanation is in Greek only, so get your audioguide (without extra fee) at the entrance.

A great walk up the Tower. It’s a bit tiring. When you get on top it’s all worth it. It’s the place that helps you understand Thessaloniki.

The White Tower is the top tourist attraction in Thessaloniki and rightly so. The tower itself has been restored to the highest quality possible and the walk to the top of the tower is pleasantly interrupted by rooms on the inside of the tower telling the story of Thessaloniki and the tower with many artefacts assisting the story telling.

Great views of the city from the top, internal museum stuff abit boring and not worth 3euro entry in my opinion unless you are really interested in Thessaloniki history

Thessalonikis Landmark! A historical place you need to visit, you will be able to learn the whole history of Thessaloniki and the most important monuments of the era created until today! Amazing view from the top!

Thessaloniki resembles Karsiyaka (Izmir, Turkey) so much that I wasn't able to find too many new things around the White Tower. Sure it's historic, and very vivid place with street sellers for all sorts of touristic things, and really such a cool hangout area I will still recommend to make a move around the castle. The better part is going... More
