Try and visit when in Thessaloniki as the Rotonda is shrouded in history. A modest entry fee of €2 pp is payable. You can view some of the ancient mosaics that still remain as well relics on the outside yards.

Since you are in Thessaloniki you shouldn't miss this great landmark building. It's not too impressive inside but for the low price entrance its worth visiting. All UNESCO heritage sites should not be missed.
