This is probably top of my list of places to visit to see this little chap:. Do-able in a day trip from Thessaloniki, see below. A spread-out archeological site which always seems to be virtually empty with an excellent museum attached. The museum has a floor mosaic of Medusa from the House of Dionysos which is well worth seeing and there are other interesting mosaics still in situ at the Roman bathhouse.
The famous Epiphany of Dionysos mosaic is being restored and cannot be viewed at present. A little village enroute to the Monastery of Osios Loukas see below which is famous for being the site of a massacre of civilians during Nazi occupation.

It has a small museum with a few unlabelled but amusingly odd mosaics randomly stacked against the walls. Hmmmm, yes, sort of. It has some highly unusual glass opus sectile mosaics from Kechries in the little museum and some black and white sea-themed mosaics in situ at the far side of the archeloogical site of Isthmia that are not cordoned off if you like the thrill of walking on ancient mosaics.
Founded by Octavian in 31BC. This secluded 10th century Byzantine monastery covered in mosaics gets five stars. The birthplace of Alexander the Great and the birthplace of mosaics as we know them dating from the 4th century BC. Pella has some stunning pebble floors including beautiful swirling floral patterns and is well worth visiting.
It would be criminal to miss if you are in Thessaloniki anyway.
There is lots to see and do on the mosaic front in the medieval town of Rhodes from the pebble mosaics which decorate the streets to the very fine mosaics at the Archaeological Museum and those at the Palace of the Grand Masters. Sometimes small museums are the best. I loved this one. It has quite a few wall-mounted third century mosaics in a quiet little museum which you are likely to have all to yourself.

A great little museum full of all sorts of mosaic wonders. Start outside where a number of floors dating from the 2nd to the 4th centuries are laid out in an imagined floor plan of a Roman house. Inside, the mosaics include a large scene of Dionysos discovering Ariadne snoozing on a leopard skin, a threshold mosaic with three fish, personifications of winter and spring and an exquisite little fragment of a four-horse chariot race.
A must if you are in Thessaloniki. Thessaloniki is a UNESCO site for a reason — there are an awful lot of Byzantine churches tucked away behind tower blocks in the city centre or nestling up within the old city walls many of which have good if not expansive mosaics. Such a comprehensive list, thank you. Good question! Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and site URL in my browser for next time I post a comment.
