If you love photography you must see Umbrellas. They are located right next to the sea, 5 minutes away from The White Tower and Alexander the Great Statue.

The umbrellas are funny and artistic. If you are in Thessaloniki, you must see it. The umbrellas are located near the sea. In night the monument is lighted.
