Interesting site

Its good walking along, checking out the ruins on route. This is quite a large, spread out site and it's quite clear what you are looking at there.

This is the big roman Forum in the city center. It would be even better if you could walk through it, but they are always striking so it is almost always closed. You can walk around the outside, which just as about as good. Graffiti everywhere on the outside, such a shame.

if you are monument lover is it good to see that Agora. Main points of that place are quite good preserved. it is avilable to see from the street. I think there is no chance to entrace but it is enough.

Very interesting visit and another great photo opportunity. Although it is possible to view this site without paying to go in I would suggest a visit here and pay the few euros entrance fee. It might also be worth Googling information about this attraction before you travel.

Exciting as it sounds, this location is among the less interesting in Thessaloniki for me, as the ruins are not in such good shape and you can see this in many places.

The original Roman Forum in Rome is sensational however this piece of history has been well preserved and is one of the many architectural features in this lovely city.

Not something special. You will pass this place a lot of times, like it or not because it is in the city center.Nice coffee places and bars near by.

This amphitheater (Roman Forum) is certainly worth a visit. It's a shame that the modern buildings are so close, however when inside you feel the history. You can see all the structures from the outside without paying the entrance fee. Still, I advice you to go inside (2 Euros) to get close and to be able to actually sit in... More

Unfortunately not open to tourists right now, but you can have a good look of this site just by walking around it , easy to find it, in the center and on the weay to Agios Dimitrios church...It is definately worth more attention from the state...
