Torosidis made his senior debut for Skoda Xanthi on 19 April 2003 at the age of 17 and scored his first goal in the Super League against Iraklis on 17 October 2005. Having made 76 apparently impressive appearances for the club during a five-year stint,[further explanation needed] Torosidis drew the attention of the top Greek clubs AEK Athens, Olympiacos and Panathinaikos.  He eventually joined Olympiacos on a five-year deal on 1 January 2007. 
Torosidis moved to Olympiacos in January 2007 and scored his first goal with the team against PAOK on 21 January 2007. He scored his first European goal for Olympiacos in the 2008-09 UEFA Cup 1st round 5–0 home leg win against FC Nordsjælland and scored another one in the competition's Group Stage 4–0 home win against Hertha BSC.
Torosidis signed a renewal with Olympiacos in the summer of 2009 that will expire on 31 June 2013, which included a buy-out fee of €7 million. He has been monitored by such clubs as Newcastle United, Roma, Juventus, Atlético Madrid, and Bayern Munich. On 22 January 2013, he moved from Olympiacos to Roma, signing a contract with the Roman club expiring on 31 June 2015.
On 23 January 2013, Torosidis moved to Italian Serie A side Roma for only 400.000 euros and signed a contract valid until 30 June 2015, with the option to stay for the 2015–16 season. Roma's sporting director Sabatini in his introduction speech said: "He is an experienced player and has spent a long time playing for the best team in Greece, Olympiakos. He played over three hundred league matches for them as well as quite a few appearances in European competition and for Greece. I'm grateful to him for choosing Roma over the other offers he received. "What memories do I have of him? One above all else. When he made a major contribution to beating Lazio and eliminating them from the Champions League here in the Stadio Olimpico a few years back." 
He made his debut against Bologna in a 3–3 draw. He scored his first goal for Roma in a 2–3 away win over Atalanta. He also scored in the Coppa Italia semi-final match against Internazionale with a great strike right in Inter goalkeeper Handanovič's top corner. The match ended 2–3, with Roma securing a position in the 2013 Coppa Italia Final against Lazio, where they subsequently lost. 
On 9 January 2014, with a very early Vasilis Torosidis goal, Roma labored to a 1-0 victory over Sampdoria in the Coppa Italia to help shake off the 3-0 league loss against Juventus last weekend. It was indubitably important for Roma to get over their first defeat of the season as quickly as possible, and to that end, Rudi Garcia sent out a side that was a mixture of first team players, fringe players, and youngsters.  On 17 March 2014, Torosidis scored as Roma beat Udinese to maintain their grip on second place from Juventus in Serie A and restored the two-goal margin before Dusan Basta of Udinese ensured a nervous final 10 minutes for Roma.

Torosidis made his international debut in a UEFA Euro 2008 qualifier against Turkey. After Takis Fyssas' retirement, Torosidis became Greece's first-choice left-back, despite playing at right-back for his club. Following the qualifiers, Torosidis was selected in the Greek squad for Euro 2008. He scored his first international goal in a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg.
On 18 June 2010, Nigerian midfielder Sani Kaita lashed out with a kick to his thigh, resulting with Kaita being shown a straight red card. Thereafter, he scored the crucial goal in Greece's World Cup Group Stage match against Nigeria which gave his country a 2–1 win, their first ever win at a World Cup.
Torosidis' own goal in a 1–1 draw with Romania, scored when a defensive clearance rebounded off him, did not prevent Greece securing qualification for the 2014 World Cup. It was just the third qualification of Greek National Team to a World Cup and the second consecutive of Torosidis. From his debut in the National Team in 2007, Greece have never lost a rendezvous in a major competition (2008 and 2012 UEFA EURO, 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup) along with his teammates he wrote the described by many as the "Golden Era" of Greek Football.
