Thessaloniki Castles and Sieges

95,00

The city of Thessaloniki was for several centuries the second-most important city of the Byzantine Empire. Due to its location and importance several enemies attempted to conquer the city, numbering eight sieges from 586 to 1430 AD, in the second place after Constantinople with 13 sieges.

We begin our tour by climbing in the White Tower to get an impressive overview of the city. Then we walk through the city to the Eptapyrgio, where we are introduced to the fortifications system and the eight sieges across the centuries.
