This tour is ideal for people who are visiting Thessaloniki for first time. So if you have limited time but want to visit some of the "must see" of the town this tour is for you! We begin our tour by visiting Rotunda, the Arch of Galerius and his palace, all early 4th century monuments. Afterwards, the White Tower, the city's landmark, where we admire the beautiful view at the top and see inside the contemporary exhibitions of old photos of the city. You learn why it's called white tower and much more!
I am always open for any suggestions and we can adjust the schedule and duration so as to meet your needs. Just let me know of any special requests you may have!

A Recent Review of this tour

Eleni was a great guide, was so informative and very helpful with our questions about Thessaloniki. Her English was excellent and her knowledge of the city and the history of its evolution to the present day. We would recommend her very highly for trips to Thessaloniki to get the best out of time in this wonderful city. Ian and Jan Tomlinson.
