See the tombs of Macedonian kings, including Philip II, father of Alexander the Great, at Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aigai (Vergina), a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built around an ancient burial ground inside a large earth mound, the museum is uniquely constructed to protect the tombs while exhibiting artifacts and showing the burial ground as it was before the excavations. Explore the four tombs and artifacts on display, and don't miss the only surviving examples of ancient Greek painting; one depicts the rape of Persephone and the other a hunting scene. The site is accessible via car and bus, but be sure to check bus timetables prior to your departure. Note that photography is not permitted inside the museum.

  • The Museum of the Royal Tombs of Vergina is a monument that will need to visit everyone. Understatement is awe-inspiring. It is good to have a guide and if you go in a group I think it must be because there are details that you won't notice if you do not have professional with you who will guide you and will roll out other aspects of the history of discoveries.
