Start a trip to Pella at 8:00 from Aristotelous Square & Egnatia Odos (at the white statue of Venizelos). The 50 km journey takes approximately 45 minutes. Once you arrive in Pella, discover the new and modern museum, as well as the archaeological site featuring unique mosaics. Enjoy the mosaics "Abduction of Helen" and "Amazonians' Battle" in the ancient marketplace and see objects from people's daily life that depict the way of life in antiquity.
Attempt a walk to Vergina, where you will find the Museum of the Royal Tombs of the Goats, located on the outskirts of the village. On display at the museum is the Larnaca Gold, an urn with the cremated remains of Philip II bearing a 16-carat sun, the symbol of Macedonia. The Sun of Vergina, a typical symbol of the Argyrian dynasty of King Philip II and Alexander the Great, was found alongside the excavations that revealed the royal tomb of his father. Admire the golden oak wreath worn by Philip II during his funeral pyre, military weapons, various grave goods and other tombs that have been brought back to light.
Enjoy lunch at a traditional Greek restaurant before stopping at the grand New Museum of Aegis, where you will discover artifacts excavated from the old capital. An impressive portrait of Alexander the Great greets you and invites you to discover the roots of the city's history.
