The Roman and Byzantine walk

The Roman and Byzantine walk

 We explore the Roman and Byzantine past of Thessaloniki, discovering its monuments, many of which are classified by Unesco as World Heritage sites and try to connect the past with the present through a rather unique city experience.

Our walk starts at the Trigoniou Tower in the Upper Town (Ano Poli) where we have the chance to enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of the city. During our tour we wander around its narrow picturesque stone paved streets, we see the remaining eastern city walls where we discover important inscriptions and visit medieval churches hiding important treasures. Walking down along the fortification walls, we find ourselves facing one of the most important monuments of the city, the emblematic Rotunda with its superb mosaics. The arch of Triumph (Kamara) and the palace of the soldier – Emperor Galerius are the last stops of our walk.

Moving through the threshold of two eras we seek the visible and hidden traces of the Roman and Medieval world.
