The White tower is a lovely buff colored, stalky cylindrical monument that is worth seeing in Thessaloniki. This fort was once used as a strategic vantage point. As a result it has been attacked and damaged several times. The current tower is a replacement for the original one that stood there but still retains its name.
But this by no means diminishes the touristic appeal of the place. The lovely single tower stands imposingly in the town. Once a part of the walled city, it is now a huge tourist attraction and a very important landmark as well. There is a museum inside it that speaks about the glorious history of the tower and the city as well. It is certainly not to be missed while in Thessaloniki.
A beautiful fort in the city of Thessaloniki and worth a visit during your Greece trip. Destroyed and rebuilt many times since its establishment, it sees a lot of visitors everyday.

The White Tower, Thessaloniki Reviews - Write a Review
Beautiful and historic building on the seafront. Well priced and interesting museum to visit. You can have a guide ot use personal language machines to explain each exhibit.
The informative panels are only in Greek. You should get the audio guide if you want to understand the story of the pictures. The audios give really detailed and good information on the history of the city. It's a bit hot inside the tower but the view on top of is worth seeing.
Very interesting and good quality of registered vocal guide. Nevertheless all indications are just in Greek language and foreign visitors cannot fully enjoy the experience. Few audio guides available, so you have to share yours. From the top a nice view of the town.
I am originally from Greece and I have been born and raised in Thessaloniki. I visited the White Tower with a group of friends from UK and not only I felt sorry for them as there was no English text at any of the exhibits but i was extremely disappointed as there were almost no exhibits at all! I wish I could leave a detailed comment on the official website but unfortunately, there's no section offered for reviews. The visitors are rewarded at the top of the tower with an excellent panoramic view of the city which is ideal for memorable photos. It is a shame a city full of history like Thessaloniki to be limited to boring posters and tiny projections on the wall that have little to offer in terms of educating or engaging the tourists of the city as well as the visitors of the tower.
The White Tower is perhaps the most popular monument of Thessaloniki. A well informed, smartly organized museum can be found inside the tower. The view at the top of the building is fantastic, espacially during a sunny day. If you are interested about the city's history, it is definitely a must - visit destination. Ask for an audio guide at the museum's entrance. Enjoy!!
