Greece, Thessaloniki Guide (B): What to See in Thessaloniki

Making pages like this really bore the hell out of me. But with a city like Thessaloniki, which has seen so much history and so many cultures I can't really leave out a page on what to see in the daytime, even if for most people the day is something you have to get through so you can go out at night.

The Roman Market and Theatre are located at the Law Court Square (Dikastiria) south of Egnatia street. Also nearby are The Roman Baths just north of the church of Agios Dimitrios and the Nymphaion, an elegant monopteral, circular building. ......
