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.

The entrance price was 1 euro and although it offers a very basic history it was well worth the visit. A stunning building but an exhibit of some kind would have been helpful.

An amazing piece of architecture, looking like the sister of the Pantheon in Rome. Impressive thick walls. Beautiful mosaics on the ceiling. Good explanations about the monument at the entrance and inside. Rotonda is classified World Heritage by UNESCO. Only 1 Euro the entrance fee!

Rotonda is absolutely fantastic: there, you can see all the layers of history! A circular building where you can find traits of Byzantine architecture and mosaics, minaret of Ottoman period and other stuffs regarding to orthodox church. Fantastic!

This is one of the highlights of Tessaloniki . Once inside even though it is an empty structure from the remaining mosaics and frescos you are witness of the struggles over the ages of different religions and different cultures .
