Not Rome but still interesting

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.

Not something special. You will pass this place a lot of times, like it or not because it is in the city center.Nice coffee places and bars near by.

This amphitheater (Roman Forum) is certainly worth a visit. It's a shame that the modern buildings are so close, however when inside you feel the history. You can see all the structures from the outside without paying the entrance fee. Still, I advice you to go inside (2 Euros) to get close and to be able to actually sit in... More

Unfortunately not open to tourists right now, but you can have a good look of this site just by walking around it , easy to find it, in the center and on the weay to Agios Dimitrios church...It is definately worth more attention from the state...

This attraction has the disadvantage (for it anyway) of being very viewable from the streets that surround it on all four sides. I'm quite sure that there are some aspects you can't see unless you're up close but unless this is really your sort of thing I'd stick to the street view. Mind you, if you happen to be visiting...

This site was closed on the Monday I visited but you are able to walk around the circuit and view it from street level. Sadly I couldn't get close ups of the mosaics or read the information boards but it looked an interesting excavation.

Spoilt by the 3 columns built to represent the original columns. Fascinating to hear that there is a hidden city beneath Thessaloniki. Worth a look if you can hear the commentary of your tour guide

Although there are bigger forums elsewhere in Greece and Italy, this Greek Agora and Roman Forum is still an interesting visit. I stumbled across these ruins when leaving the Church of Agios Dimitrios. They are worth a stop over when walking around Thessaloniki.
