About White Tower in Thessaloniki

A visit to the White Tower of Thessaloniki is a must when someone is on a trip to the city, because the tower is a symbol that represents the city, and any trip would be incomplete without visiting such a popular tourist destination. Located near the waterfront, the White Tower Thessaloniki Greece is a monument and a museum.  However, its history dates back to the 15th century.

The White Tower of Thessaloniki holds great importance in the Greek history. The unique position of the tower and its unique architecture are all because of a reason. The White Tower Thessaloniki Greece was used as a fort for the harbour defences, a garrison, and a prison. For those wondering when was the White Tower of Thessaloniki built, it was made in the 15th century to replace an older fortification of the 12th century.

The White Tower of Thessaloniki is an architectural marvel, which is in the form of a cylinder with a diameter of 23m, and height of 34m. The outer wall has a spiral ramp, while there is a central room which can be accessed from all the six floors of the building from the inside. The White Tower Thessaloniki is a historical building set and established against a modern backdrop. This is the main reason for it being so popular amongst the tourists that it has become a tourist attraction in the city.

As the White Tower Thessaloniki Greece served the purpose of a fortress, garrison and a prison, the building was earlier referred to as ‘Tower of Blood’ or ‘Red Tower’ due to a number of people being captured and kept here. The White Tower of Thessaloniki has seen a lot of deaths as compared to the other monuments and buildings in the city. However, in 1912 during the First Balkan War, the White Tower Thessaloniki Greece was whitewashed in order to make it free from its older name. It was after being whitewashed and totally cleaned that the White Tower of Thessaloniki became a symbol of the city, and started to represent Thessaloniki. Therefore, for the tower that stands right now in the city, one could say that the answer to- when was the White Tower of Thessaloniki built can be 1912 when it was renovated to become a famous tourist destination.

Recently, the White Tower Thessaloniki Greece is being used as a museum that showcases various eras and rules that used to exist in Greece. As it is known that Greece holds an important place in the history of World. Therefore all the monuments and places related to it are also very important in the World history. The White Tower of Thessaloniki has served as a fortress, Garrison and a prison, which means its value in the history of Greece and World is quite a lot.

Thus, it would be right to say that a visit to the city of Thessaloniki without a visit to the White Tower in Thessaloniki Greece would be incomplete.

    Hinita's 4 days trip to Thessaloniki

    The trip was most enjoyable thanks to the services provided by our travel agent Shubham of this tour company. Our agent Shubham was very attentive to our wishes and interests, and arranged a schedule to meet our needs. He was very patient, and made adjustments to our schedule as required. During the trip, he provided excellent coordination and support. This included helping with tracking a checked bag which did not make it with us on a flight connection between Madrid and Porto. All of the private drivers and guides was very professional, punctual and considerate of our interests, needs and comfort. We cannot overstate how pleased we were with all of the services provided. We feel like our amazing family trip to Spain (Barcelona, Seville, Cordoba) and Portugal (Porto, Tomar, Sintra, Lisbon) actually began when we started working with our travel agent six months prior to our departure date. He consistently followed up with us to understand our interests, priorities, likes and dislikes, in order to create a wonderful itinerary that satisfied our entire family. Even our last minute request to add a stopover in Tomar on our way from Porto to Lisbon was handled expeditiously. The private guides that took us around in all of the cities we visited were top-notch, hotels selected were comfortable and conveniently located near the city center, drivers were on-time and friendly… Our travel agent Shubham was also very responsive and helpful in giving us advice during our trip, especially when we encountered some unexpected problems such as a lost luggage during airport transfer.

    Jan's 7 days trip to Thessaloniki

    This travel company was great to work with and the trip planner Shubham was very helpful, making suggestions and fitting the activities to the kind of trip we wanted—some structure without being scheduled every minute. The tour guides in Prague, Austria & Vienna, and Budapest were excellent, with a great command of information and history. It was particularly interesting to hear about their experiences before and after the Iron curtain. Our guide in Prague was amazing . Shubham and prashant were great in there services . One suggestion I’d make in Budapest—-it’s really too big to do a walking tour and see much in half a day. It would be better to use a driver for this half day tour to save time. We wound up only seeing Buda due to walking. The hotels provided by shubham were all very nice with great breakfast buffets—appealing to many cultures, especially the hotel in Vienna. All the drivers were prompt and friendly. We loved it and are already planning the next trip from Hubholiday !

    Thanks to TravelTriangle for making our honeymoon trip to Italy one of the best trips of our life. The entire trip was planned flawlessly. The cab was waiting for us when we reached the airport and all the bookings were made in advance. Not just that the trip was so efficiently planned that we could tick all the activities we had planned. It was so well organised taking into consideration the arrival, departure of the trains and giving us enough spare time to explore the cities on our own. I sincerely thank TravelTriangle for making this trip one of the most memorable trips of our life

Our trip was really well planned in terms of accommodation, commutation, sightseeing and a combination of best of things. Ms. Mayuri handled everything exceptionally and was available 24*7 for any query that we had during our trip. The best part of this experience is the daily updates that we received every morning. We highly recommend Duniya Safari for your next trip.

    Prashant's 7 days trip to Thessaloniki

    It was a wonderful, memorable trip. The support and services we received from our Shubham . Our agent shubham was incredibly patient, answering all our questions with grace and interest. He and his partner prashant are extremely knowledgeable about travel to Turkey. We were so impressed with the services on the ground. We believe they assigned their best guides to us, since each of them went out of their way to please us. Turkey is a multi-faceted country with a rich history, and we all came away knowing so much more about it than we imagined. All of the services were well coordinated, including the four intra-Turkey flights we took. All transitions went as smoothly as possible. All in all, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to anyone who was interested in traveling to Turkey! Thank you again shubham sagar and prashant for such a great trip .

    Sonia's 4 days trip to Thessaloniki

    This was our first trip to Europe planned by shubham sir and Pooja mam . Shubham was there with us from starting of preparing of itinerary till end of our trip . I decided to take an extended (7 week) vacation through Europe, visiting 4 countries and 13 cities, with various friends coming and going throughout my travels. The trip itself was complex, with the added intricacy of the various desires, personalities, budgets, and availabilities of my traveling companions. Despite the unique nature of my trip, the travel agency managed to plan an outstanding, memorable, and unique vacation for all of us. As a young woman partaking in a multi-city trip (some parts solo), I wanted the vacation to be stress free and safe. The representative Shubham sagar I worked with, planned an itinerary that required zero worry, planning, or stress on my end. Throughout my travels, I knew with confidence that I wouldn't need to worry about transportation or navigating a foreign city on my own. Most importantly my travel representative provided me with a local contact in each city who was simply a phone call away, available whenever myself or a traveling companion needed an issue resolved promptly. Furthermore, because of Shubham vast experience, I was able to visit cities I otherwise would not have while staying in beautiful, boutique hotels. Most impressive, however, was the agency's ability to plan a trip for all of my traveling companions with such varied budgets and interests. Each friend who participated in this trip was more than pleased with their segment of the vacation-- many recommending the agency to other friends of their own soon afterwards. Because of the hassle-free nature of the trip on the part of this agency, my friends and I were able to relax and truly enjoy the experience of being in each unique city.

The vouchers were given on time in spite of a tight schedule and also Imtiyaaz upgraded the many things like hotels, trains, tours, etc from his own. The hotels were good and very near to the stations which were commendable. Our overall experience was great and will definitely recommend hubholiday.com to my friends and relatives and for my future trips. Best regards, Kaushal Sawant.
