Following the disturbances at Thessalonica, Paul went to Beroea. There some people came to faith, but opposition against the Christians broke out again. Paul soon left the city.  

Context: Beroea was a leading city of Macedonia, in what today is northern Greece. Near the city is a fertile plain that is well suited to agriculture. The heart of the city is at the center of the picture above. Rugged hills and mountains lie behind it. Acts says that after hearing the Christian message, the Jews at Beroea "examined the Scriptures every day to see whether these things were so" (Acts 17:11).
