Archaelogical Tourism

Aigai is the first capital of Macedonians and the core of their ancient Kindom, the place where the family of Philip II and Alexander the Great reigned for over three centuries. It is the legendary, spiritual and political cradle that spread the Greek civilization to the whole world.
Alexander the Great put on a hugely impressive funeral for his father, fit for an emperor. These battle ornaments, jewels and crowns were to accompany his father and wife into the afterlife. After two millennia kept secret by the earth, they are ready to tell you their story.
Enjoy a glimpse here, to whet your appetite, but go and visit the tombs and palace for yourself for the full disclosed version of the legend. Don't forget that there are two sites in Vergina; the tombs and the palace.

The treasures of the Royal Tombs that are exhibited next to the very same tombs provide a sense of the splendor of the city of Aigai during the years of its acme. Here is the magnificent tomb of Philip II as well as the famous golden urn and other valuable personal belongings of the great King of the Macedonians.
