Day Trip to Vergina from Thessaloniki
Vergina, the City of Philip II and center of Greek Macedonia
Vergina is a village located in Central Macedonia, Greece around 80 kilometers from Thessaloniki and is famous about the archaeological finds discovered by Professor Manolis Andronikos that included tombs of Macedonian Kings. According to the claims of Andronikos and most archeologists, the tomb of Philip II, who is the father of Alexander the Great and the tomb of Alexander IV, who is the son of Alexander the Great and Roxana, were found.
Vergina is the modern name of Aigai that was the capital of the Kingdom of Macedonia. The tombs are protected by a set of underground enclosures build in 1993 and a museum has been constructed in order to display all the findings. On the lid of the golden larnax of Philip II there is the classic Greek Macedonian symbol of sun. Since 1996, UNESCO has inducted the Archeological Site of Aigai in the World Heritage List.
