    The famous White Tower, near the waterfront, dates from the period of Venetian rule (1423-1430). You can’t miss it. However, if you don’t take the time to wander around the city it’s easy to miss a lot. The best thing you can do in Thessaloniki is to get lost. Wander around anywhere above Aghiou Dimitriou St and look at the city walls. Not just...

    Thessaloniki Off The Beaten Path

    Thessaloniki can feel a bit small, especially if you've come up from Athens, but it is actually a sprawling city that hugs the coast.
