What an amazing place. You can get the aroma of the past centuries of the city centre in the museum that needs freshening up. Unfortunately, a visit to the spectacular external space was not possible due to restoration being in process. Pity

You can see how things were in the past. Understand that it 's a city under the city.
But it's a shame that they aren't protected by the rain, snow, sun and weather. Although they are still standing!

Go to Aristotelous Square, through the park and you will see this amazing site. You can see streets, Music Academy, cryptoporticus, mosaics...
Eventhough site was close for visitors (holidays) you can approach the Agora and see it from the side streets.
Easy to find, real pleasure to see...

On first view we thought the site was just what you see above ground-the excavated Roman Argora .Well worth a visit.But to our amazement there is a vast museum underground about the history of the area-& we had it all to ourselves-& it was airconditioned!

Walking through the Roman Forum, one realizes how convoluted history is. Though Rome conquored Greece militarily, Greece conquored Rome culturally. Latin may have been useful in Italia, but Greek was the commercial language of the empire. It comes together in Thessaloniki's Roman Forum.

For those interested in Roman heritage, this is a must-see stop. It is a well presevred fine example of what an administrative square in an Eastern Roman province looked like. Do not miss the museum underground, it is very informative.
The agora is within a walking distance from the other main city center attractions.
Working hours are not clearly visible, it took us three attempts until we found the site open. So make sure you check accessibility in advance.

This is a giant archeological dig right in the middle of Thessaloniki. It’s quite incredible and it’s quite clear the outline and main features of the Roman town that existed 2000 years ago. This is a must see in Thessaloniki.

Very nice museum beneath the ancient agora and Roman forum. Walk through the remainings of the Roman forum and learn about ancient history in the underground museum. Entrance fee is 2€ per person only!

This site made my entire trip. Coming from a country where archeological findings/sites aren't much more that a few plates, cups or cutlery this place fulfilled all my desires and really let me envision the 2000+ years of history! The site is easily accessible and the staff is very helpful.
Entrance is free for students so it's absolutely worth a visit.

The museum is well stocked with information about the ancient city as well as the city in recent years. This is the only place where the great fire of Thessaloniki is described fully and not just mentioned as it is in many other museums in the city.

It can get a bit annoying as the staff follow you around the entire museum (they do this in all the museums) but I made the most of it and asked a bunch of questions turning it into a walking tour :p

A trip to remember if you visit Tessaloniki- situated in the heart of the city close to important landmarks of the city such as the church of Agios Dimitrios and the central Aristotelous Square-you definitely need a guide to explain the history of the place or do your homework beforehand-there are huge blocks of flats around- not a reminder of the past glories the place has witnessed-definitely a must.
