A Unique Location

Discover the city of Thessaloniki

There is no doubt that the best way to get to know a city is walking along and across
it! The historic centre, the harbour, the Beach Front and, of course, the new beach
with its recreation hang-outs and majestic sunsets are merely a few of the city’s most
popular places to visit.

The White Tower

The trademark of Thessaloniki, a perpetual symbol of the city, the White Tower is by far its most visited spot. Standing tall and imposing on the city’s waterfront and it will thrill you with its stone-built cylindrical form. Measuring at 33,90 m high and 22,70 m. in diameter, with a ground floor and six more floors, all which there is a guided tour for. Nowadays, the Tower hosts an exhibition of the Museum of Byzantine Culture on the history of the city.

New beach

The most relaxing and romantic of walks in Thessaloniki takes you along the New Beach. Full restored, it offers a stroll oozing a “European atmosphere” and impressive thematic parks that enhance the city’s image! Combine your walk with a cup of coffee at sunset overlooking the Bay of Thermaikos.

Ano Poli

Take one of the most traditional walks in Thessaloniki, across the authentic Ano Poli. This area was saved from the Great Fire of 1917 and lies at the northernmost and highest part of the old town. Essentially it stretches out from the north side of St. Demetrius Street, reaching north to the walls of the Acropolis and the Byzantine Walls to the west and east.


Undoubtedly one of the most important Paleochristian and Byzantine monuments in Thessaloniki, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A stone's throw from the Galerius Arch, it sure brings to mind the Pantheon in Rome.

The ‘Umbrellas’

The ‘Umbrellas’ is an impressive art installation by the great sculptor George Zongolopoulos, and amongst the most important sights of Thessaloniki, a real eye-catcher for all the visitors. This specific work of Zongolopoulos’ was presented for the first time at the Biennale of Venice in 1993, where it was strongly appraised, and in 1997 it was reassembled outside the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki.

Aristotelous Square

One of the most central –if not the most central– of squares in Thessaloniki, Aristotelous Square combines Byzantine style craftsmanship with western European architecture, features two of the city’s trademark buildings: Olympion and Electra (built in 1650 and 1960 respectively) and, as a whole, exhibits a cosmopolitan atmosphere that leaves its visitors charmed.
