Our day trip to Thessaloniki will begin around 8:00 in the morning. Our first stop will
be ‘Ano Poli’ the acropolis of Thessaloniki, which is the highest point of the city. In
there you will be able to admire the Byzantine fort, the Heptapyrgion, and a large
portion of the city's remaining walls. The panoramic view of the city is the perfect
start for our trip. Our next stop will be in the promenade of the city, downtown at
the White Tower, the symbol of the city and museum. Previously it was called
“Bloody tower” because it was a place of mass executions and prison. When
Thessaloniki was annexed from the Ottoman Empire the tower was whitewashed as
a symbolic gesture of cleansing and acquired its present name. Right next to the
White Tower we will have the chance to see two more monuments: Fillips B’ and
Alexander’s the Great, on his horse, while enjoying our walk by the sea. The temple
of Saint Demetrius (Agios Dimitrios) will be our next stop. Saint Demetrius is the
patron of the city. In the temple are kept the remains of Saint Demetrius, which after
the tour inside it we will have the chance to worship. In our spare time, you will be
able to walk along with the city, explore it yourself, go shopping and buy souvenirs from
its big marketplace. The estimated arrival time back to the hotel will be around 18:00.
