The tower has lots of information on each level in Greek but we found the free english audio guide severly lacking; there just wasn't the information we were looking for. Eg the level showing maps of the places worldwide Thessaloniki traded with had no info about what was being traded; just that we were looking at maps of the trade... More

For sure, it is very important to see this part of a great culture but also take into consideration that is a small square in a middle of a modern city. The area is a must see place so you will not be agree if you will visit it

The white tower was part of our day out in the car visit of Thessaloniki. The tower is not accessible for wheelchairs and those unable to walk up a lot of stairs. The history was informative and the staff friendly as well as happy to answer any questions. Be warned it is very hot in the summer on hot days!... More

Built during the Ottoman Empire, the White Tower of Thessaloniki is a true landmark of this gorgeous city and harbor. It is six stories high and stands majestically by the seaside harbor. There is also a museum here which relates all the known history of the White Tower. We were fortunate to tour the Tower and Museum with our friends... More

You can see the whole city from the above. Inside is very hot and tight. There is a free wifi in the tower. It is written in Greek. There is not translation in English.

One of the "have to visit" places in Thessaloniki. You can't lose the opportunity to take a foot at the top of it. There are no guides on-site it but in every floor you can find signs in English. Also in one floor there is something like cinema that a short film is repeating. If you are not in hurry... More
