Jim and Karen's trip to Greece travel blog

Rotunda

Galerius Arch

Mosaic from Galerius' Palace


We had a beautiful day to venture to the east side of our area to view the amazing Rotunda, Galerius's Arch and Galerius's Palace. The palace at one time encompassed 3 city blocks, extending from the arch to the sea. It is amazing to see the mosaic work on the floors. Again we are amazed by the fine workmanship with such rough tools. On our way home from the palace we came upon a wonderful outdoor restaurant where we dined on chicken in pomegranate sauce and souvlaki in lemon sauce. We were also served chocolate mousse with black cherries compliments of the restaurant. We are spending the evening at the hotel as everything is closed since it is Sunday. The weather was beautiful during the day but is quite cool (45) now.

The Wifi went out on our floor tonight so we are in the lobby. Hopefully it will be back up by tommorrow.
