Here is life through the eyes of the Erasmus students of Thessaloniki....
The White Tower of Thessaloniki (Lefkos Pyrgos in greek), is a monument and museum on the waterfront of the city. The present tower replaced an old Byzantine fortification which was mentioned around the 12th century and reconstructed by the Ottomans to fortify the city's harbour; it became a notorious prison and scene of mass executions during the period of Ottoman rule. It was substantially remodeled and its exterior was whitewashed after Greece gained control of the city in 1912. It has been adopted as the symbol of the city.

If you decide to study in Thessaloniki, soon you will get familiar with the THESSERASMUS hashtag!
"Thesserasmus" has a double meaning. On one hand, "thess" stands for Thessaloniki. On the other hand, "thess" means "you want" (θες) in greek! So the meaning now is "you want erasmus".
