About this experience

A excellent destination to learn a lot about the history and culture of ancient Greek Macedonia are the spectacular royal tombs and the Philippos museum. The palace and two royal edifices, one of which belonged to Alexander the Great’s father, Philip II, are located in the multi-center museum of Aigai, together with several other historical artefacts.

By the time you leave, you will undoubtedly have gained more insight into the legend surrounding King Philip, the father of Alexander the Great.

Private Tour from Hotels in Gerakini to Royal Tombs and King Philippos Museum

Learn more about the King Philippos Museum and Royal Tombs with this Private Tour from Gerakini Hotels, Sithonia.

We will get you up at 08.30 from your hotel or the location you provide to us in Halkidiki, and we’ll drive you the two hours it takes to reach to the Aigai archaeological site (now known as Vergina).

You will have ample time when we get to Vergina to see the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Museum of the Royal Tombs of Aigai (Vergina), which houses the tombs of Macedonian monarchs, among them Alexander the Great’s father, Philip II.

Constructed around an old burial site within a sizable earth mound, the museum is specially designed to preserve the tombs while showcasing artefacts and portraying the burial ground in its pre-excavation state. Take in the sights of the four exhibits (tombs and artefacts) and don’t miss the two extant specimens of ancient Greek artwork, one of which shows a hunting scene and the other the rape of Persephone.

Following that, you are welcome to have lunch or coffee in the town of Vergina before we return to Halkidiki via road.
