See the tombs of Macedonian kings, including Philip II, father of Alexander the Great, at Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aigai (Vergina). 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.

  • Beautiful site. Exciting. They knew how to build a Museum in an archaeological site without ruining the wonder of the place. Magic make you breathless

  • Beautiful idea of creating the Museum inside the hill where the graves were found. Many exhibits that often leave speechless especially for the conservation status. Beautiful arrangement of finds. Soft lighting that creates a nice atmosphere. To see. For connoisseurs and don't.

  • Absolutely stunning view into the ancient world. The tombs are impeccably preserved, the story is well told, and the artifacts are truly surreal. The hardest part is removing your jaw from the floor.
  • Archaeological site of utmost importance as it brilliantly showcases the ancient Greek civilization. You will have the opportunity to admire the jaw dropping royal tomb, artifacts and personal belongings of Macedonian king, Phillip.
