Walking down from our hotel, literally across the road from this well-preserved attraction, one is once more reminded of the vast scope of Roman influence over the Classical world two millennia ago. The site was typically closed to the public during our two-day visit, but we were able to imagine the bustle of this meeting place and typical ancient market.... More

Its good walking along, checking out the ruins on route. This is quite a large, spread out site and it's quite clear what you are looking at there.

if you are monument lover is it good to see that Agora. Main points of that place are quite good preserved. it is avilable to see from the street. I think there is no chance to entrace but it is enough.

Very interesting visit and another great photo opportunity. Although it is possible to view this site without paying to go in I would suggest a visit here and pay the few euros entrance fee. It might also be worth Googling information about this attraction before you travel.

Exciting as it sounds, this location is among the less interesting in Thessaloniki for me, as the ruins are not in such good shape and you can see this in many places.

The original Roman Forum in Rome is sensational however this piece of history has been well preserved and is one of the many architectural features in this lovely city.
