Thessaloniki Cultural Route Bus Nr 50

Sightseeing for only 2 euros

The start and end point of Bus’ No 50 cultural route is the famous White Tower which is by the seaside promenade (paralia) in the SE edge of city centre. The bus stops next to the tower at an opening designated for tourist buses and the duration of the circular route is 50-60 min if taken without a stop. It is easy to follow the route as all buses are equipped with a verbal and visual system that announces every stop.

The official bus guide highlights 3 suggested walks as well as all the points of interest throughout the route. A good place to find the guide would be the GNTO information office at 136 Tsimiski Str. (Behind the YMCA building and next to the TIMES café-bar).

The bus starts and stops its route opposite the Thessaloniki’s historic White Tower.
