There is the white tower.
|This was a prison for naughty people, some guy earned his freedom by painting the tower white and hence its modern name, oooOOoo.|
|Delightful stretch of coast to wonder|
|Yup, its an eye catcher!|
The castle overlooking the city was definitely a highlight.
|Excellent views over the city, well worth the huffing and puffing up the hill! If you are from Thessaloniki, this is where you bring a girl on your first date... or to suck face in a delightful panoramic view of the sunset! Great spot!|
|Just on a date, me and my bicycle that is...|
All in all, Thessaloniki is a nice city with a diverse and busy city centre. The student areas are great for getting a cheap bite to eat.
After watching the sunset with my picnic dinner on the top of the old castle walls, I pick up my bike, both tires are punctured! The culprit! This stuff!
|Ok, its not a grass, its Tribulus terrestris . These dried nutlets are not much fun for bikers|
Its ok, it was only 8 punctures and a whole evening repairing them. The view over the city by night made it better.
