What to expect
  • Meet your private guide in the morning in front of the Saint Dimitrios Church entrance. Over the course of the day, you’ll experience a cross-section of the ancient Roman, Byzantine, Christian, and Jewish cultures that have shaped Greece’s second-largest city. First, check out some of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Byzantine Christian churches, and stop by the Roman “agora” (marketplace) which has hosted traders for thousands of years. You’ll proceed from there to explore the crypt of Saint Dimitrios, a subterranean space recently revealed below the church. This is a good opportunity to learn from your guide about the incredible range of cultures, from the Ottomans to the Christians to the Jews, who have called Thessaloniki home throughout the ages. You’ll finish your trip by visiting the White Tower, perhaps the most famous landmark in the city, after which your trip will end there.

We learned so much of Thessaloniki's history in a visual and engaging way. Our tour started at the Church of St. Demetrios, where we went underground into the old Roman baths where the Saint was killed. We learned about the history of the many incarnations of the Church from Roman times onward. From there, we saw Byzantine architecture and symbolism in the Church of Agia Sophia and learned more about the origins of the Iconoclast movement. Another highlight was the Rotunda, which was built by the Pagan emperor Galerius, turned into a Christian church, and then turned into a mosque by the Ottomans. We also visited the Arch and Palace of Galerius, heard the history of the White Tower, and ended by the statue of Alexander. The pace of the tour was excellent for us and packed with new information. By far the best walking tour we took in Greece.

Amazing symbolic monument museum at sea front. A must to see when you visit the city.
Thessaloniki's top landmark, the 34m-high White Tower has a harrowing history as a prison and torture chamber.
