The Greek Agora and Roman Forum is situate close to Church Agia Sofia. It is a nice place loaded with history. Nothing spectacular but worth to see it.

On the way up to the Church of Agios Dimitrios one passes by the Agora, it's a nice site to see but not worth much time especially if you've been to Rome.

We saw this at the end of a our of Greece. Compared to the other forums we saw, this is not at all impressive. It is only partially excavated. Right now the main part is closed to tourists.

One of the must see places in the city. It shows much about the ancient history of the city. This touristic place is closed for constant visits but still if you are really interested in it you can cross the fences and have a look on it.

Step back in time as you explore the perimeter of the ancient Roman Forum, a great place for pictures and a tranquil moment away from the urban hustle. Lots of shops and cafes around. Don't miss the nearby Rotunda and Arch.

In the middle of St. Demetrius and Egnatia Road a great monument of Greek and Roman history, even if only looked at from the fence surrounding it. A lot of cafés and shops around it to make it easily accessible and easily visitable even for the bored from old stones and antiquities visitors of Thessaloniki.

It is located between church of st. Dimitrios and Aristoteles square, so you cannot miss it. It is not a spectacular site, but you should at least take a look. It has some interesing pieces, especially the amphitheatre.

It almost feels as if it is to be repopulated after construction is finished. Is unlike any other ruin you will visit in Greece.
