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.

Perhaps I am getting jaded, but I've now been to a number of very nice ruin sites in Greece. If you are in Thessolaniki anyway, it's worth at least walking by even if you don't have time to go in, you can see much of it from the outside. It's not that big, about a large city block, and its... More

We mostly viewed the area from the outside but it was worth to walk around and see the various ruins.

It is amazing how this area has withstood the test of time, in consideration of the development around it. The suburb itself is a little dingy, quite a number of drunks walking around during the day, be mindful of your possessions.
