The City itself isn't really nice, a typical tourist town. It has got a fort from the 17th century that's nice to watch and take photos.

If you want to relax at the beach you have got some nice beach sections here, with the amazing Greek sea. But because of the tourist character of the town, the beaches are always crowded, very many tourists.

The place is a good starting point to visit Mykene and Argos, you can stay in a nice inn, some of them are very comfortable and cozy.

Thessaloniki Sights

The White Tower has become over the years en emblem of Thessaloniki. The Ottomans built the waterfront tower to serve as a prison, and it subsequently became the scene of many grisly executions. The initial name of the tower was the “Tower of Blood”, but when Greece gained control over the city, it was whitewashed and renamed so as to erase some of its gruesome history. The Arch and the Tomb of Galerius are twin monuments from the Roman period, built as annexes to the Royal Palace whose ruins are close by. The Arch of Galerius used to be a triple arch celebrating the victory of the emperor over the Persians, but nowadays only... Read more »
