“Walk up worth the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013



If your interested in the history of the city this is the place to go . There are audio guides available in English, definitely needed since the entire museum is in Greek.

Be prepared to walk uneven steps to each floor. Each floor is devoted to a particular theme with some detailed information provided at various exhibits on the floor. Did I forget to I mention there are six floor with the last one, theme flavored, leading to the open air venue surrounding the tower . The 360 degree view along is worth the walk.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

This was a very interesting and great thing to see. Each level has a different topic regarding the people of Thessaloniki and their history. It has videos and photos. We used the audio guide which was great. You can eventually go to the top of the tower and it has a beautiful view of the city and the water.

“Great historic site on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

The White Tower is a fantastic site that should fascinate any history buff. The tower itself has seen quite a bit of history, but the renovation that has been done shows a historical record of the whole city throughout modern history. It's very impressive.

Be sure to get the audio tour if you don't read Greek because you'll need it inside.
