Full description
Visit Pella and Vergina, the two most important archaeological sites of the Macedonian Empire. Here in these two sites unfolds the great history of two great men and of a great ancient kingdom. Start your day tour from Thessaloniki. After 60 minutes driving you will arrive at Vergina. Vergina was the first capital and was called Aiges in ancient times. Here you will visit the royal tombs of King Philip II father of Alexander the great. Inside the museum/tomb complex burial artifacts such as gold jewelry, weapons, religious artifacts and the Gold Larnax found at the tomb containing the remains of King Philip are on display.   Discover the museum of Pella at the next stop of your trip. Here is the place of birth of Alexander the Great and the capital of the great Macedonian Kingdom. At the newly build museum admire thousands of gold and silver artifacts, mosaics, weapons, statues and maps. Next to the museum is the archaeological site where you will comprehend how big the capital was once when you walk around the 4000 hectar site.

Good driver, but the museum in Pella was closed on a Tuesday (contrary to what the guidebooks tell) and so there is not much to see there. The company should know this, as well, that the palace in Vergina must be reached before 14 o'clock.
