Itinerary
Stop At:  
White Tower of Thessaloniki
The tower was built in 15th century in order to replace an older 12th century Byzantine fortification while it was later recontsructed by the Ottomans. It was used as a fort enhancing the harbors defences, as a garrison and a prison. Because of its fame as a notorious prison it was also known as “Tower of Blood” (Kanli Kule) or “Red Tower”. It was renamed to White tower (Torre Blanca) after it was whitewashed possibly in 1891. It was surrounded by long defensive walls that were enclosing the area and were capable of supporting heavy guns. These walls were demolished at the beginning of the 20th century, while it is unclear whether they were part of the original construction or a later addition destined to further enhance its defensive features. Today the tower is open to the public while the visitors will have a chance to enjoy a wonderful panoramic view from its highest level. A very beautiful and informative museum inside the monument is dedicated to the city’s history, its multicultural spirit and several other aspects of Thessaloniki.

Robbert S
, May 2018
on time pick up from our hotel Electra Palace very clean Mercedes station car - knows the way in Thessaloniki - tries to park the car as close to the attractions although his English is limited, he is very trustworthy and friendly, professional in that he helped my mom get in/out the car everytime we visited: Ayias Sofia, Ayios Dhimitrios, Dhodeka Apostoli, White tower. upon his recommendation we also visited Trigoniou tower and ramparts, Vlatadon monastery, the old town and Kemal Attaturk's former home. we would have visited the rotunda and the arch of Galerius but due to 1st may 2018 labour day activities / festivals some roads were closed off so instead he was so kind to bring us close to the hotel.
