Then drive to Vergina (ancient Aigai) to live the experience of a visit to the unique Museum, created in the Great Tumulus, covering Macedonia’s royal tombs. See the astonishing findings from the tomb of King Phillip II, Alexander’s father, and feel the thrill of the most significant discovery of the 20th century. A few miles away is Veria (Biblical Beroea) to visit Saint Paul’s Bema and then stroll through the old Jewish neighborhood and the colorful market area.
