Thessaloniki Walking Tour 

(Roman and Byzantine Period)

Join this tour and explore a city with a long history reflected in its important monuments, streets, squares, neighborhoods and secret corners. This is a tour for the fascinating history of Thessaloniki. 
Initially, our first stop is in the Rotunda, which was a massive circular structure with a masonry core that had an oculus like the Pantheon in Rome. It has gone through multiple periods of use and modification as a polytheist temple, a Christian basilica, a Muslim mosque, and again a Christian church (and archaeological site).
After the Rotunda we will visit the  famous Acheiropoietos-Basilika Church. It  was built on the 5th century. It is dedicated to the Holy Mother of God. Being a three-aisled basilica with a wooden roof, it is a beautiful sample of Paleo-Christian byzantine architecture.
Finally we will make a stop at the Paleo - Christian temple of Agia Sophia, one of the most impressive Byzantine churches of Thessaloniki. Located in the center of the city as well, it is a very beautiful “Domed Basilica” style temple with an imposing architecture, beautiful wall paintings and elaborate mosaics. read more
