“Arch of Galerius”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

During the crisis of the 3rd Century, Thessaloniki was the capital of the part controled by Galerius. Its huge scale gives a good idea of the importance of this town, both for the Roman Empire and for the Balkans itself. The bas-relief are a delight to watch, very well kept.

“New meets old”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

In the middle of a busy shopping street you come on a monument celebrating a Roman victory. It has held up pretty well over around 2,000 years and some of the carvings are still in reasonable condition and our guide took us through what was being shown, which helped understand its significance.

“Great Meeting Point, Lots to do around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

The most common meeting point in Thessaloniki. Lots of cafeterias are located in this area and around it where loads of university students gather and spend their time together, since it is very close both to Aristotle University and University of Macedonia. Rotonta is very close from here so make sure to pay a visit, If you walk towards Navarino Sqaure (which is downwards, towards the sea), you'll get past numerous small shops , fast food restaurants that will surely interest you and will soon find yourself to Tsimiski Street were even more and bigger shops are located and the street is thus packed with people especially on Saturdays or during Sales.
