Check out the many Byzantine churches around the arch. Also the small ones. For me, the tourist highlights of Thessaloniki (in addition to the food, of course). Skip the boring Greek-only exhibition in the White Tower.

The Arch of Galerius sits right next to a very busy street on the edge of the square leading to the Rotunda and the Palace of Galeirus. It's in relatively good shape despite being thousands of years old.

A few minutes' walk from Rotunda (seen in the background) on the same side of the street - the sight is simply amazing even though only about half of the structure remains today. Reliefs on one side of an arch column is vivid and clear,...More

How interesting it is for new world visitors to see centuries-old monuments in the middle of a bustling city, let alone more or less in the middle of the street. These monuments are but a short walk along a grassy pathway from the Rotunda, which...More

There are several of these monuments in the city. One is the Rotunda, a beautiful building used variously as a temple, a Christian church, a Mosque and then a church again, and now a museum. The Arch of the Emperor galerius, on Egnatias street, is...More
