Why we chose this tourMacedonia was, at one point, the largest empire in the world and feared for their military might. Explore the ruins of this ancient powerhouse, browsing works of art, burial tombs, and ancient coinage. Walk where Aristotle and Alexander the Great did, and learn about the important scientific, strategic, and artistic contributions of this peerless dynasty.
Our Our Pella & Vergina Tour from Thessaloniki takes you on a magical journey to the past when you visit Pella, the birthplace of Alexander the Great and a hotbed of cultural growth, and Vergina, the ancient capital of the Kingdom of Macedonia and the crossroads between Balkan and Mediterranean culture. Macedonia was renowned for their contributions to art, science, and military strategy, all of which can be seen in the remaining ruins. Your tour begins in Pella, where you can visit the museum and various archaeological sites. Aristotle did the majority of his important work directly after tutoring Alexander the Great: walk the same paths that this military conqueror and philosopher did. Admire the mosaic floors that used to adorn the floors of the city’s mansions, and include depictions of the Abduction of Helen, the Deer Hunt, and the Amazonmachy.
The second half of your day will be spent in Vergina, home to the ruins of Aigai. This staggering palace is widely considered one of the largest and most lavish buildings of ancient Greece, and its well-preserved mosaics and stucco decorations give you a glimpse of the opulence in which the ancient Greeks lived. The museum is considered one of the most gorgeous in Greece, and contains the tomb of King Phillip the 2nd, golden artifacts, and remnants from the Bronze and Neolithic ages. After a day filled with rare beauty and an abundance of knowledge, make your way back to Thessaloniki to unwind.
