Ancient ruins in the center of the city. Love to hang out in this square. Yes, it has become ghetto kind of with drugs and stink, but I choose to see the bright side... It gathers a lot of artists, singers, dancers and it's very...More
Looks are deceptive with this one. There is not much left of this once enormous palace, and most is tucked away in the Navarinou Square, but if you take the time to visit the ruins (free admission) you can get a feel for its former...More

Galerius worked to make Thessaloniki the administrative center of the Roman province. For this he constructed very large...More
Also closed and not attended. It is true that one can see it all from just walking around, as it is all below street level. However, it would deserve more attention from the local authorities, in order not to be further damaged. Two separate but...More
Here you’ll find items from the Roman Hippodrome. The palace was built during the 4th century. This may be something you can find on a bus tour. We took a bus tour with hop on/off privilege and this was one of the stops.
