The Rotunda of Galerius was much like the Panyheon in Rome but with less popularity. It was a beautiful spot to visit.

Iconic monument carrying all of Thessaloniki's history-it is centrally located next to the Arch of Galerius -it is worth visiting as you will be able to realize the stages of history development through the ages -it's really amazing to discover all these!!!

This attraction, which only costs €1 to visit, is enormous and empty! The domed ceiling is covered with lovely mosaics, but they are so high up they're difficult to see in detail. A very good video shows them in fine detail, which was shot during the most recent upgrading. Some areas of mosaic are missing but the remainder are really... More

This is the big rotunda in the center of the city. It is neat to walk inside and see, but there is nothing inside it. Completely empty, no artwork, nothing. So it is a big empty building from the old days.

I believe at some stage it was a church and then a mosque. It has recently been renovated and the space insidebis very impressive. Check the openning hours before going, but certainly is worth seeing.

Even if has not that much to show (it's an empty space) it's a good example of the Roman times. Some mosaic on the huge round roof and walls. Go there.

Went there because it was highly recommended. It is a quite unusual round old church. An old impressive building with an interesting structure and nice old paintings on top. I loved the echo sound inside it, which made it seem more holy. Not a world-wonder but worth a visit.

Best fast food places all around. I don't think you can actually see inside the place. But I am not sure.
