This is one of the most important landmarks in Thessaloniki. Galerius was aRoman Emperor who build the arch built as part of a road that would connect his palace to the main road that stretched through the city. The arch was made to instill a sense of majesty and wonder on those who passed through it. It served a reminder of the presence of the Roman Empire. Today the arch still stands and is one of those that you absolutely must visit while you’re here. This is what the beautiful arch looks like

This Arch is an important landmark to me, as well. It's always there, and that fact is very comforting. It also has a really amazing history!

One of the most beautiful pieces of history in Thessaloniki for sure
 

The National Theatre of Northern Greece is a great place to watch shows

How long do you recommend to spend in Thessaloniki?

Is a weekend enough? Or should I be spending more time? I don't want to do anything fancy, just the classic sightseeing and eating out. Any advice?

Take a cruise to Mount Athos from Thessaloniki!

This is a great thing to do if you're wanting to do some excursions in the city! There are even some cruises with a glass bottom where you can see all of the beautiful sea life below. :) I highly recommend it

Thessaloniki Still Struggling to Increase Hotel Stays .

The reduction in Domestic travelers is a sign of economical situation where people cannot afford to go for holidays.This season has been very tough,an old colleague from Mykonos now living in New York was there for a month in summer just gone and she said she was so sad to see many businesses closed and the difficult times were obviously felt all around. https://news.gtp.gr/2021/09/28/thessaloniki-still-struggling-to-increase-hotel-stays/

Do I have to pay to visit monasteries in Thessaloniki?

I was thinking to visit Panagia Ikosifinissa, Vlatadon and Agia Theodora. Do I have to pay to enter? If so, about how much is it per monastery?
