Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / Central Macedonia / Thessaloniki Region / Thessaloniki / Arch of Galerius
One of the city's most important and intriguing landmarks, the remains of Arch of Galerius provide a glimpse into Greece's long and fascinating history. The triumphal structure was built in the 4th century and today three of the eight pillars survive along with the masonry cores of the arches. Roman Emperor Galerius commissioned the monument to celebrate his victory over the Persians, and to this day you can witness scenes of the war on the remaining marble slabs. Spend some time interpreting the depictions and soak up the lively atmosphere of this popular meeting spot. There are a number of bars, restaurants, and tourist attractions in the area.

Cool spot, very accessible. Wish they had more signage explaining what the arch is about and when it was built, however I think that if they did that then they would have too many tourist blocking side walk
The Arch of Galerius (Kamara) is perhaps the most distinctive and interesting roman structure of Thessaloniki. It is also one of the most popular destinations of the city along with the White Tower for both locals and tourists.
