    An amazing sight! A must see in Thessaloniki!!!
  • Dan M.
    The iconic tower is worth the entrance fee for the view from the top alone. The actual exhibition is a bit strange, and worth taking a local language audio guide as is only in Greek.

    You need around a one hour to comfortable visit White tower.

    There are boats in front of the tower. No entrance fee for the boats but paying only what you have during the tour. It takes around half an hour. Prices aren't very different from other bars or cafes.
