Visit the hometown of Alexander the Great with this brilliant trip to Pella and Vergina. You will discover the importance of Macedonia's past by exploring its fascinating archaeological sites.
Pella and Vergina Trip
Between 6:30 and 8:30 am, we will pick you up at your hotel in Thessaloniki and head to Pella, the birthplace of Alexander the Great.
After driving for an hour and a half, we will reach the ancient city of Pella, located in northern Greece. This was the capital of Macedonia between the 5th and 4th centuries BC and is today home to an amazing archaeological site that we will explore. We will travel back in time, learning about the lives of illustrious figures such as Aristotle, Euripides, Philip II, and Alexander the Great himself.
We will go into the site's museum to discover the many finds that have been made in the area. The exhibition includes everyday objects of the inhabitants of the ancient city and wonderful mosaic floors of the "house of Dionysus" and the "house of Helena".
After this, we will take you to Vergina where you will have half an hour of free time to rest and recharge in one of the area's traditional restaurants. Then we will meet up again and enter the local museum, where we will find the tomb of King Philip II, father of Alexander the Great.
We conclude the excursion by arriving back at Thessaloniki between 5:30 and 7:30 pm.
