During your stay in Halkidiki/Katerini/Thessaloniki, you have the opportunity to take a full day tour to Vergina-Pella.
Vergina is one of the most important archaeological sites of Greece. The site of the Royal Tombs as well as an exhibition of the major finds from the burials at Aigai museum is protected by UNESCO as world cultural heritage. You will visit the royal tomb of King Philip (The father of Alexander the Great), the Tomb of the Prince (III), which may belong to Alexander IV, grandson of Philip II and son of Alexander the Great. Some of the major finds exhibited here are the two golden urns, containing the bones of Philip II and one of his wives, two oak and one myrtle golden wreaths worn by the royal dead.
Pella is our next stop where we visit the ancient city with the monumental palatial complex and the pavements decorated with magnificent mosaics and of course the new Museum opened in October 2009.
