Strangely enough the street signs indicate it as the "Roman Agora". In Latin it is called a forum, in ancient Greek an Agora - but the concept is the same. Here is where everything public (elections, electoral speeches, public addresses, trials, ...) took place. Of...More

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...More

Thessaloniki is full of archaeological sites, aside from Rome I've never seen so many ancient ruins and buildings melded seamlessly into a modern city. My hotel overlooked the agora so it was great to have a view of this fantastic site.

although in an excellent state of preservation, it seems curiously dull. The presentation, below street level at top of Aristotle Sq means that it seems rather unimportant and not much is done really to make it seem more significant

Led by the map from tourist information, our self-guided shore excursion of Thessaloniki from the Prinsendam comfortably walked the city streets. There were plenty of street signs pointing the way to the Roman Forum. We opted to walk the outside perimeter and read the plaques...More

Plenty to see and read. Worth buying a discount ticket to visit here - the white tower, and two museums. Amazing how much is still preserved. The air con wasn't working in the underground museum when we visited (we were advised of this prior to...More

In the middle of this historic city is a large Roman forum, surrounded by apartment blocks. A strange and fascinating site especially for those of us from the new world, unaccustomed to living with historic sites thousands of years old. This site is relatively well...More
