The White Tower

The symbol of Thessaloniki and the point of reference for both the local population and visiting tourists. The Tower is located on the city’s quayside as a remnant of times gone by. In the 19th century the Tower served as a prison. Today it is an art and historical museum.

Ladadika

The area that covers the streets from Koudouriotou to Diamanti and from Hiou to Lemnou is known as Ladadika. Here you will find many bars and restaurants, but also the Museum of Ancient Greek, Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Musical Instruments.

The Arch of Galerius (Camara)

Two of the characteristic monuments of the town. The Arch of Galerius is located near the eastern city walls, a short distance from the Kassandreotiki gate.

The Rotonda

The Rotonda is a cylindrical building dating back to the start of the 4th century and is unique in Greece. At one point it was a Pantheon or a Mausoleum for Emperor Galerius. It is now the Church of St. George. Entry is free. The mosaics in the church are truly impressive.
