About Arch of Galerius and Rotunda in Thessaloniki

The Arch of Galerius and Rotunda are two neighbouring buildings in Thessaloniki, whose history dates back to the 4th century. Both the places are an example of the brilliant minds and creativity of the people in those time because of the architectural excellence of the Thessaloniki Rotunda as well as Arch of Galerius Thessaloniki. One must visit both these places to take a sneak peek into the history of Greece.

The Arch of Galerius Thessaloniki Greece is located on the intersection of two of the most famous streets of the city, which are Egnatia and Dimitriou Gounari Streets. Though the Kamra Thessaloniki was a bigger and better version of what it is today, currently there are initiatives being taken to conserve it and save it from further destruction. Built in around 298 AD and 299 AD, The Thessaloniki Arch of Galerius earlier used to have 4 main pillars and 4 secondary pillars, out of which only 2 main pillars and 1 secondary pillar is still standing.  The height of the central arch is around 12.5m, while its width is 9.7m. The Arch of Galerius Thessaloniki Greece has been carved beautifully and depicts various war scenes and other facts of the past.

The 6m thick walls of this Rotunda Thessaloniki Greece have played an important role in saving the building from some of the major natural disasters of the past. The Thessaloniki Rotunda is able to withstand earthquakes quite efficiently. Thessaloniki Rotunda is also of great importance in the history of Greece because it has served 3 religions in the past. It has been a church, a temple and a mosque. Some of the Greek publications also believe that it is the oldest church in the World, and due to these reasons, it is a popular tourists’ attraction in the city.

    • Trip to Maldives

      Awesome trip to Maldives!! KesiaTravels did a fantastic job planning our trip to Greece! I was recommended to Travel triangle by a friend who had plan a trip several years back. Saloni specializes in Maldives and has suggested us a great package. I am generally a "Traveller", however, in a country like Maldives, and with limited days, Saloni really made all the difference in developing a well thought out plan. She maximized all our time. Every detail was arranged for us with the best of drivers, tour guides, and hotels. I really trust Saloni and Kesia Travels and would certainly seek her advise again for my next trip. one word to say it's a " Paradise and heaven on Earth".. we really enjoyed our honeymoon on the Dreamland "Fushifaru" Maldives

    • Trip to Greece

      Our trip started from Rome to Florence and Venice. The trip could have been much better and our one day to Tuscan village was ruined because of late info from agent. There were so many things which could have been included like museums, art gallery and so on. The place is worth the visit but nobody informed us about commute system in Venice and all the points were very far from hotel .The services should be improved definitely if we are spending so much money and special arrangements should be done for honeymoon. Marina da Pisa Beach day out which we did by our own because our Tuscany lunch and day out was cancelled due to agent late info.

      This holiday was planned in a very short span of time. Special thanks to Rohit and Prashant in helping us out get the best deals throughout the trip. They were always available on call and whatsapp even during the entire duration of the trip. I am sure even if I had self planned the trip it couldn’t have been better than this. Greece is a beautiful country and there are plenty things to explore. We had a mix of adventure, history and romantic destinations on our itinerary. In all it was a good trip. Athens to Mykonos cruise trip.

      The entire trip was very well organized. Garima helped us throughout the process - customizing our itinerary, suggesting places to visit, booking tickets as per our request, and providing assistance in the Visa process. She even helped us with our queries when we were in Greece. The hotels booked for us were simply superb. The hotel staff at Athens was not too friendly though. The sightseeing tours that were booked for us were very nice and hassle free. We faced no issues with pick up/drop, except for the pickup at Santorini but that too was because our ferry reached late, and it was handled well by the Destination Services staff. The itinerary had a perfect balance of activities and leisure time. We enjoyed the trip a lot. Kuods to Garima and Eji Travel Solutions for organizing such a nice and memorable trip for us! Thank you!!
