A visit to Thessaloniki without seeing the white tower will not be good enough. I liked climbing the tower, the view, reading about the history inside the tower, and seeing the different fotographic themes on each level highlighting different aspects of Thessaloniki. What I disliked was the strange opening hours.

We were lucky to arrive by the first Sunday of the month, when every monument and museum has free entrance, when all the shops are open and the seaside downtown Thessaloniki is pedestrian. If you add a sunny weather to that, then you have a perfect day to visit the white tower. If you don't speak Greek, you should ask for audio in English, which will guide you throughout the more than 2000-year history of the city, organized and presented in a beautiful audio-visual exhibit as you go up the seven levels of the tower. The staff are friendly and helpful and,make sure you do not miss some of the most important features of the path. And, on top of it: a breath-taking view of thus magic city!

It is worth a visit to see the view from the top but the exhibition inside is not particularly informative if you are English speaking.

Iconic monument for Thessaloniki. Also, the free audio was unexpectedly welcome extra to the quite interesting displays (entrance is not free but cheap) which cover milestones of the city's history.

The view of the port and the sea, once on the top of the Tower, is amazing, especially if the weather is good.

The tower itself is nice - But more interesting is the general ambiance - We were there at a weekend - There were lots of folk around - Lots of food stalls etc - Boats that double as bars with a "free" (you have to buy a drink) trip around the harbour area. Excellent. The bars and eateries around this area are a little expensive but always (this was the weekend) busy busy busy.....a great fun area...would highly recommend it.
