Reminds me of Alexandria Egypt. And there's a great reason for that, since Alex was founded by the hero of this part of Greece especially! -- Alexander the Great. (We visited his father's and his son's royal tombs today in Vergina)
And yesterday we toured the major highlights of the City.
Below, the Rotunda: a Roman temple for a time, which later served as a mosque during the Ottoman period. Now back to serving as a church with regular services on Sunday's.
Above: Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk) home - he lived here around 12-13 years.
Below: Constantinos, our beloved guide around Thessaloniki.
