Full description
You will drive across the beautiful landscape of Macedonia, which is called the “Garden of Europe”. First you visit Vergina, the place of the Royal Tombs, where you see the King’s mausoleum and the famous museum with finds of the Tombs of King Philippos II, father of Alexander the Great.

You will visit the most important remains of the monumental palace of the Kingdom of Macedonia, lavishly decorated with mosaics and painted stuccoes, and the burial ground with more than 300 tumuli, some of which date from the 11th century B.C. One of the royal tombs is identified as that of Philip II, who conquered all the Greek cities, paving the way for his son Alexander and the expansion of the Hellenistic world.

You continue to Pella, the ancient capital town of Macedonia and native town of Alexander the Great. The small museum gives you the chance to see findings aged from 4th century BC
