When you want to learn more about the history of the ancient Greek Macedonian Kingdom and like to see one of the best archaeological sites in Greece, you should head for the Vergina Tombs and the nearby ruins of the ancient city of Aigai.
Here you can visit the stunning Macedonian Vergina Tombs, where the remains of King Philip of Macedonia, the father of Alexander the Great, were found.
Vergina is the name of the modern village that now exists at the same place where once the ancient Greek Macedonian city of Aigai was located.
Besides the tomb of King Philip II, you can see three more tombs in the museum. The Royal Tomb Museum of Vergina is built within a (reconstruction of the) tumulus (mount) where the tombs originally were found in. Beautiful treasures found in the tombs are on display. It is one of the most important historical places to visit in Macedonia.
