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 Thessaloniki Rotunda is one of the ancient monuments and buildings of Greece that is located near the Arch of Galerius Thessaloniki Greece, and is of great importance to the local people of Greece, because of the sacred beliefs of the people related to it, and the various roles that Rotunda Thessaloniki Greece has played in the past. Though the building is quite old, and its history dates back to 306AD, the place is very well maintained. 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.

The names of Arch of Galerius and Rotunda are often taken together because of their nearness to each other, and due to the fact that both these historical monuments were built almost together in the past. The distance between the two buildings is about 125m, and one can view them together from a point in the city. The road connecting the Thessaloniki Arch of Galerius and Rotunda Thessaloniki is well developed, and people can easily walk from one place to another.

    • Trip to Greece

      To an awesome Greece trip arranged by a perfect trip planner! This was my wifes and my first trip outside of India and we wanted it to be planned by an agent rather than doing everything by ourselves. I went with Travel Triangle through which I got in touch with StreetRomeo and Mr Jigar. Thats where started a journey which would make our trip effortlessly awesome! I am a very picky person and i research a lot on the web as well. I also have a lot of questions always. Jigar was always available!! Almost 24/7 - the guy doesn't sleep it seems! He was constantly in touch with me through bookings and through our daily plans. Everything was very professional right from day 1 with booking.. vouchers..day wise plan etc. Everyday Jigar would send us the details for the next day including driver details..points to visit..and others Jigar also handpicked perfect hotels as per our priorities...mine was good hospitality and location..Jigar made sure both were met! Me and my wife went on the following itenary:- 1) 2 days in Athens including hop on hop off tour 2) Athens to Meteora - 2 days including sunset and half day tour 3) 3 days in Santorini Every hotel.. every tour was amazing! We loved the locations..the hospitality of each of our hotels all suggested by Jigar 1) Athens - Hotel Athens Atrium 2) Meteora - Oikia Guesthouse 3) Santorini - Hotel Nemesis Special thanks to Jigar and Travel Triangle for making memories and making such wonderful trips and moreover being available always for anything! I totally recommend StreetRomeo and Jigar for anyone who wants to travel anywhere abroad! Cheers! - Vikram R

      When Jigar helped me create a personalized & customized itinerary after lengthy discussions even at odd hours, I knew this was the travel agency I wanted to go with. I had no apprehensions about the agency while making the payment. And I am proud of my decision. I must say this trip was so meticulously planned and executed by the team, that my wife said that she wants us to book all the future trips with the same travel agent. Everything was so on time and Jigar was providing us real time information about the different options to explore even while we were in Greece. It was a great assurance to know that someone had our backs. Jigar was continuously in touch with us throughout the trip and made sure that everything went as planned. Thank you Jigar and StreetRomeo for this amazing trip!

      Thank you very much Yeeshu for helping us have a great experience during our stay in Greece. The whole experience was really great right from the beginning until the end of the trip. You helped us getting the trip within our budget which included the hotel stay and sight seeing. The staff of each and every hotel we stayed were really nice and friendly. Also thanks for suggesting in changing hotel for Santorini. I would recommend all the three hotels in which we stayed to others. 1. Hotel Marina, Athens 2. Hotel Deliades, Mykonos 3. Glykeria Mini Suites, Santorini. You were always reachable at any given time and assisted in all possible ways. I totally recommend you for anyone who wants to travel anywhere abroad! Kudos to you!!!! Thanks once again for making it memorable.

      Firstly, thank you very much Rohit and Prashant in helping us have a great experience during our stay in Paris, Brussels & Amsterdam. The whole experience was really great right from the beginning until the end of the trip. Rohit helped us get good price for the trip, which included the hotel stay and sight seeing, the hotel was more then enough for a couple with the staff being really nice and friendly an was accessible to most of the train and bus stations. He also helped us getting the tickets for most of the sight seeing. Rohit & Prashant was always reachable at any given time and assisted in all possible way. Thought it was a hectic trip but Rohit had helped us with the above things as we wanted to do everything. Also unexpectedly there was a situation with us, Etihad airways were not able to issue our return boarding pass due to Jet Airways(which is closed company) connecting flight from Abu Dhabi to Mumbai. Special thanks to Prashant, he sorted things with Etihad Airways(IST midnight) and got us seats on next connecting flight to India from Abu Dhabi. Really thank you Rohit & Prashant for supporting us throughout the trip and I would really want to approach him in future. Very disappointed with Travel Triangle service, specially with Prabhakar Choudhary and entire Travel Triangle team. Not able approachable when needed and none had picked up call in emergency. Regards, Aayush
