How to avoid driving in Thessaloniki

We are staying in Leptokarya and would like to see Thessaloniki. We will have a car but we would like to avoid driving in Thessaloniki. We would like to do the hop on and off bus tour that begins at the White Tower. What is the best way to get the White Tower? Would it be easiest to take the train from Leptokarya to Thessaloniki, then a bus to White Tower? Or, drive and park on the outskirts, take a bus in?

Leptokaria to Thessaloniki is an easy drive on the highway.If you decide to go by car count around 25 euros for gas in total and around 8 euros for tolls.Parking in Thessaloniki is a nightmare.You can leave it in a secure parking for a fee of course.

If you decide to come by train take a look at trainose.gr .You can take the bus from the train station to the city centre.Bus no3 runs from the train station to the White Tower.

Thanks so much for the information. Hopefully we can navigate ourselves to the nearest parking garage as that seems the most cost effective for our group of 7. We will have two cars so I hope we don't loose each other!

If you don't want to pay for secure parking,about 500 metres after passing the White Tower you'll see parked cars at both sides of the road.You can leave it there if you find space or in one of the side streets there.Just remember where you have left it of course!
