It's quite a nice experience to be able to walk through or past such old buildings. There are some beautiful carvings on the building.

Thessaloniki is a beautiful city with great sea, restaurants, shopping, above all people...but there are also plenty of valuable Christian and Byzantine monuments worth visiting. Enjoy this amazing Greek gem!

An interesting monument you would understand nothing about if it weren't for the travel guidebook you are probably reading as you walk through Thessaloniki! Don't the Greeks realise how many people travel to their country out of love for their great monuments?

Check out the many Byzantine churches around the arch. Also the small ones. For me, the tourist highlights of Thessaloniki (in addition to the food, of course). Skip the boring Greek-only exhibition in the White Tower.

A beautiful roman monument in the center of the city! Make sure you pass by. It is also close to Rotonda Roman Temple

The Arch of Galerius sits right next to a very busy street on the edge of the square leading to the Rotunda and the Palace of Galeirus. It's in relatively good shape despite being thousands of years old.
