Not a lot to see here unless you're a real history buff or archeologists. Still this small place is well preserved after more than 1,500 years. It is a major part of the cities total preservation efforts and worth a look.

This is a beautiful spot to walk through, and worth lingering to admire the fabulous marble carvings on the insides of the arches. It's very photogenic.

This is the arch in the middle of the city. You see it driving down the main street. Amazingly they have managed to keep the graffiti artists off it so far.

If you are on your way to The Rotunda then you will pass this arch and it is great for a Photo Opportunity but very little information provided on this arch on site. Might be worth googling information on the Arch before your visit!

Not so much a destination in itself as much as the place all roads lead, "Camara" is well worth seeing. This is where everyome would meet up before a night out, pre-cellphone. Part of the Galerian complex, it's right on the way the Rotonda

Right in the center,on the main street of Thessaloniki called Egnatia street, close to Rotunda, in a very nice area with cafes and lots of shops! Very lively spot day and night, definetely worth admiring it while resting at a cafe closeby!
