Very nice preserved considering the fact that is surrounded by apartment blocks all around. We couln't get in when we got there (I don't know if it's closed for public visits all the time). I would recomend this to everyone considering that Paul might have preached in here...

An ancient site surrounded by modern buildings and people going about their everyday business. It is great that the city that decided to preserve this site. Inspiring.

It's funny/odd to see these remnants of ancient civilization surrounded by the ugly high-rise apartment buildings that cover much of the center of Thessaloniki.

Nothing special. Just old ruins visible from the street. We didn't even buy a ticket to go inside. There are more interesting places to see in Thessaloniki.

There's a full city block that Thessaloniki decided to preserve when they rediscovered these remains--well done. Unfortunately, the remains aren't the best example and it requires a lot of imagination. Only one column remained intact. At the time that I visited, there was a nice photography exhibit in the museum space below (the old shops, which were in use much... More

Nice to see the perimeter and JUST IMAGINE what could it be at the time of Romans. It is a sort of football field with just a two or three columns near a corner of the peristyle. Also for the rest of the theater there is nothing special to say. We should be happy that such ruins are there to... More

This is an amazing place and the museum under the market square is well set out with so much information. They also have exhibitions in the area and were setting up photographs when we visited in early May.

Enjoy your walk at Agora, it's just on the north of Aristotelous Square, you will like the view and there are also quite a few hip bars and taverns you will enjoy (and quite cheap too!). A really good alternative walk away from the bustling crowds of the sea front.
